'8 Months On: Ukraine Still Needs Our Support' by Charlie Rapple

Charlie Rapple, co-founder of Kudos, writes the following for The Scholarly Kitchen blog:

We are into the 8th month of Russia’s war against Ukraine. It is estimated that the war has caused almost USD $50bn damage to housing infrastructure, $9bn damage to business infrastructure, $4bn damage to educational infrastructure, to pick just a few Statista stats. … One in three people [are] displaced; one in six have had to flee to other countries, including 2m children. It is pretty much impossible to imagine trying to keep your business going, trying to keep earning your living, in such circumstances. ‘Solidarity’ with Ukraine has come in several guises. How has the scholarly publishing sector continued to respond? …

The big publishers have released various statements (joint statement in March, other statements from ElsevierIOP PublishingWileySAGEACSRSCBristol University Press) about stopping sales and closing offices in Russia, making content free to Ukrainians, and making humanitarian donations.

For more information on what the scholarly publishing community has been doing to help Ukraine, read the blog post.
