Companies and organizations that distribute works

Publishers are companies and organizations that distribute journal articles, books, and theses. OpenAlex indexes about 10,000 publishers.

Our publisher data is closely tied to the publisher information in Wikidata. So the Canonical External ID for OpenAlex publishers is a Wikidata ID, and almost every publisher has one. Publishers are linked to sources through the host_organization field.
