Community Initiatives

UKSG is proud to support the wider knowledge community beyond its membership.



UKSG is proud to support Think.Check.Submit which is a campaign to help researchers identify trusted journals for their research.



UKSG is also proud to support COUNTER which provides the Code of Practice that enables the knowledge community to count the use of electronic resources. It ensures vendors and publishers can provide their library customers with consistent, credible and comparable usage data.

Other initiatives include:

  • webinars
  • Further Education (FE) events
  • awards and bursaries for the Annual Conference and UKSG Forum
  • Insights: the UKSG journal - platinum open access with no APCs (article processing charges)
  • student workshops and student memberships
  • research projects for the benefit of the wider community (Usage Factors; Impact of Library Discovery Technologies; Transfer; KBART: Knowledge Bases And Related Tools)

Income received from membership fees and events is used responsibly by UKSG in its not-for-profit capacity for the benefit of the wider knowledge community and future generations of professionals working in scholarly communications.
