Simba Information Studies Trends in Scientific and Technical Publishing

Simba Information released “Global Scientific & Technical Publishing 2021-2025,” a report showing that the scientific and technical publishing market has posted underlying growth. The press release states, “[T]otal sales increased 0.4% to $10.5 billion in 2020. However, currency exchange fluctuations deflated growth. Simba Information estimates growth without the currency impact at 2.8%.” In addition, “The number of articles published with funding from 33 key research organizations tracked by Simba Information grew 10.7% to 525,042 articles in 2020, according to information in the Crossref database.”

“The findings stand in stark contrast to forecasts of doom and gloom related to COVID-19’s impact and the move to open access,” says Dan Strempel, senior analyst of professional publishing at Simba Information. “Print books continue to fall, but that spending is migrating to e-books and other types of online content, databases and tools. Research spending and output, in terms of journal articles, both continued to grow.”

For more information about the report’s findings, read the press release.
