Social Responsibility

We at IRED, aspire to select research paper, through highest quality peer review. To achieve this, the entire peer review and publication process must be thorough, objective, and fair.

IRED Supports Authors from Developing Countries

At IRED we value our independence and operate as a sustainable commercial enterprise. As such, and in common with many other Open Access publishers, we require payment of an Article Processing Charge. However, we are aware that many scientists, especially in developing countries, may have difficulty in covering this cost due to a lack of financial resources.

IRED Supports the Environment

IRED is committed to protecting the environment through choosing efficient business processes and minimizing waste and emissions. Digital book publishing is not only a convenient way of publishing books, it is also an environmentally friendly one. Given that million of tons of carbon dioxide are produced annually from the production of books, environmental sustainability considerations favor digital book production over traditional print.

All IRED books are published both in hard copy and online, but we print on demand only. A large portion of printed books is never purchased, and therefore printing books on demand helps eliminate waste. In addition, IRED's primary business is STM publishing. Alternative energy sources (wind, solar, hydro and other renewables) are topics that we cover extensively.
