January 6, 2010

Hindawi is pleased to announce that its collection of open access journals has grown substantially during 2009. The number of submitted manuscripts to Hindawi’s journals in 2009 increased by more than 115%, from about 7,600 submitted manuscripts in 2008 to more than 16,500 in 2009. The number of manuscripts accepted for publication increased from about 2,500 in 2008 to roughly 4,400 accepted manuscripts in 2009.

“We are very pleased with the strong growth we experienced during 2009,” said Paul Peters, Hindawi’s Head of Business Development. “We currently have over 200 journals covering many areas of science, technology, and medicine, and we saw very strong growth in all areas, particularly within our biological and medical collections.”

Hindawi’s journals are edited by more than 8,700 scholars who serve on the journals’ Editorial Boards. The 16,500 manuscripts that were submitted in 2009 were authored by more than 46,000 distinct authors from around the world.

“It is clear now more than ever that our open access conversion, which we completed in early 2007, was the best management decision we have taken at Hindawi,” said Ahmed Hindawi, the company’s co-founder and CEO. “We look forward to 2010 with great hope and determination to continue our growth and to further the solid academic and financial performance of our publishing program.”
