Other Forms of Sponsorship

Other forms of sponsorship include sales of bulk subscriptions to commercial entities for distribution to individuals, noncommercial sponsorship or grants to support specific editorial sections, and grants to support publication of journals in resource-poor communities. With each type of sponsorship, the funding source should be clearly indicated to recipients and readers/users, and all editorial content should be under the complete authority of the editor, should undergo the journal’s usual editorial evaluation and peer review, and should not be influenced by the sponsor(s).
