Editorial Independence and Donor Transparency Policy

The Open Notebook is a nonpartisan, editorially independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) media organization (read more about our mission). Our coverage decisions are made independent of any outside influence or cause other than providing information to and serving the U.S. and global science journalism community. We accept gifts and grants from individuals and organizations for the support of our activities, but our editorial judgments are made independently and not on the basis of donor support. Our acceptance of financial support does not constitute implied or actual endorsement of donors or their products, services, or opinions.

Find a list of all donors who give a total of $5,000 or more per year on our Partners page.
