Overview of PIPS organisation

The Company of Biologists is a not-for-profit publishing organisation dedicated to supporting and inspiring the biological community.

We are run by distinguished practising scientists. We exist to profit science, not shareholders. We inspire new thinking and support the community of biologists.

The focus of our activities is:

  • publishing leading peer-reviewed journals
  • facilitating scientific meetings and communities
  • providing travel grants for young researchers
  • supporting and funding research societies
Placement offered

Internships with a publisher provide students who will stay in science with an insight into the publishing process – and for those students who may leave science, it could be an interesting alternative career.

Projects will be data driven, to include publishing metrics (e.g. usage, citations and diversity data) and creation of a poster presenting the data around potential ethics issues.

The Company may also be able to offer the right candidate an opportunity to contribute to the preLights preprint highlighting service or one of our other community blogs, but noting that this will not be the primary activity for the intern.
