Cactus Communications, a leading science communication and technology company, announces the expansion of its partnership with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to offer author services for the AAAS Science Partner Journals (SPJ) program.

The SPJ program features high-quality, Open Access publications produced in partnership with international research institutions, foundations, funders, and societies and is aimed at advancing the AAAS mission of communicating science to a wider audience for benefit of all individuals. It achieves this by equipping leading international research organizations with cutting-edge technology, enhanced visibility, and expert publishing support. AAAS, the world’s largest general science membership society is uniquely positioned to offer these resources and expertise.

With this renewed partnership, Editage, the flagship brand of CACTUS will now become the exclusive provider of author services to AAAS, representing a successful collaboration between the two organisations. This commitment to open science and researcher success aligns perfectly with Cactus Communications’ author-centric approach, which prioritizes empowering researchers to unlock their true research potential. The partnership marks a significant step in Cactus Communications’ mission to provide comprehensive support to authors and publishers, further solidifying its position as a leading provider of scholarly communication solutions worldwide.

Nikesh Gosalia, President of Global Academic and Publisher Relations at Cactus Communications, is enthusiastic about the deepening collaboration with AAAS, states, “Becoming the exclusive service provider for AAAS represents a new phase of our association and underscores CACTUS’ commitment to supporting researchers in maximizing the impact of their work while advancing open science initiatives. AAAS SPJ is part of the world’s largest general science membership society, and we are honored that they have chosen Editage to support their authors.”

Christopher Reid, Director for Product and Publishing Development, AAAS, said “As our Science Partner Journal program grows it is critical to us to provide the very best experience for our authors and for our editors. This partnership with CACTUS allows us to further that aim. Critically, this partnership allows for the greater dissemination of high quality scientific literature removing barriers caused by language. This helps AAAS further its mission to advance science.”
