The Board of Directors, Editors and staff of Annual Reviews extend our thoughts and deepest sympathy to the people of Ukraine. We stand against the Russian regime for its intolerable and unlawful attack on a neighboring country, as we condemn every instance of authoritarianism, occupation and aggression.
As a science publisher, Annual Reviews supports the science community as well as the citizens of Ukraine. On 3 March, the paywall on all 51 Annual Reviews journals was removed, making Annual Reviews content openly available in Ukraine. We have also made a donation to a humanitarian relief agency working in the country.
We recognize the courage and principles of the many Russian scientists and citizens who have spoken out against the war.
Support for Ukrainian scholars and their families who are being forced to flee is being organized by the Safe Passage Fund. We encourage and support this and other efforts by the research community to assist individual researchers and to maintain global exchange and cooperation among all scientists.
