Annual Reviews is a nonprofit publisher of 51 perpetual journals of relevant research through in-depth, highly-cited reviews written by invited authors.

Annual Reviews is an independent nonprofit publisher dedicated to synthesizing and integrating knowledge for the progress of science and the benefit of society.  We publish 51 review only journals, covering physical, biomedical, life, and social sciences. Each journal is directed by an Editorial Committee that commissions review articles and conducts peer review, supported by a core organization staff. Reviews are written by recognized experts who capture current understanding of a topic – including what is well supported and what is controversial – and highlight major questions that remain to be addressed. The combined efforts of authors, journal editors, reviewers, production editors, and illustrators creates content of great value to our principle target audience: researchers, faculty, and students. Annual Reviews is run by, and for, scientists. 

Annual Reviews has spearheaded several initiatives to support understanding and accurate dissemination of research. One such initiative established in 2017 and supported by grants from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Knowable Magazine is the digital publication from Annual Reviews, seeking to make knowledge accessible to all. Knowable Magazine explores the real-world significance of scholarly work through a journalistic lens. Reporting on the current state of play across a wide variety of fields — from agriculture to high-energy physics; biochemistry to water security; the origins of the universe to psychology.

Review articles written by leading scholars from the 51 Annual Reviews journals serve as springboards for stories in Knowable Magazine. Through in-depth features, explainers, articles, essays, interviews, infographics, slideshows, and comics, Knowable Magazine presents insights from research to a broader audience.
