Policy Statement

14 March 2022

Pleiades Publishing remains deeply concerned about the continued bloodshed in the Ukraine. We call for the immediate cessation of hostilities and for negotiations among the parties.

In the meantime, while we are committed to the need to maintain a free flow of information between scientists, we cannot continue to collaborate with State owned or directed institutions in the Russian Federation. In compliance with various international Government regulations and in accordance with the wishes of our customers, we shall immediately discontinue all payments to such organizations and suspend the implementation of existing agreements.

Our decision shall not affect the publication of our original English language journals as they are created through contracts with scientists, authors and editors in their individual capacity without regard for race, religion, gender, ethnic origin or politics. Our collaboration with them will continue as before.
