Shared Science Publishers is based in Graz (Austria) and managed by two directors and two managers for communication and technical issues, respectively. In addition, Shared Science Publishers is supported by the opinions and recommendations of a number of scientific advisors with both an above-average scientific record and broad experience in scholarly and life science publishing (see our International advisory council).

The directors of Shared Science Publishers are ultimately responsible for the scientific quality of the journals released.
