PUP champions scientific research with March for Science 2018

Princeton University Press’s mission is to bring scholarly ideas to the world. We publish books that connect authors and readers across spheres of knowledge to advance and enrich the human conversation. We embrace the highest standards in our publishing as embodied in the work of our authors from Albert Einstein in our earliest years to the present. In keeping with our commitment to serve the nation and the world with top-notch science publishing, we’re excited to announce that we will be partnering with The March for Science on April 14 in Washington, DC.

From the March for Science mission statement:

The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.

  • We believe that the scientific method, and findings that result from its responsible use, are powerful tools for decision-making.
  • We integrate our commitment to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion into all programming, outreach, and advocacy efforts.
  • As nonpartisan political advocates, we act with the understanding that science does not belong to any political party, and that scientific evidence is an essential part of good policymaking at every level of government.
  • We do not merely react to the problems of today: we look forward, aspiring toward an inclusive, integrated vision for the future of science and science policy.
  • We are a reflective and self-critical organization that prizes ongoing internal evaluation and correction.

In our politicized world, the application of science to policy is not a partisan issue. Like the March for Science, Princeton University Press is proud to support engagement with scientific research through education, communication, and ties of mutual respect between scientists and their communities.
