Product

Academia.edu is building a new way for scientists to publish and peer review academic papers. It's widely thought that science is too closed, and too slow. Academia.edu is trying to change that.

To date, over 18,000,000 academics have joined.

Why Us?

We're building an Open Science platform to bring the world's research online, available to all, for free. With over 18,250,000 registered users, Academia.edu is rapidly transforming the way researchers share their work. We're a small team of 20 people passionate about building great software to open up science. Last year we raised $11 million from Khosla Ventures, Spark Capital, and True Ventures to fuel the growth of the platform and the team.
