The Scientific Press® seeks to enhance global research and education by publishing outstanding original works authored by thinkers concerned with the future of humanity, and who are willing to contribute to a better future through a compassionate understanding of global concerns from the perspectives of humanities, arts, and sciences.


The Scientific Press® was founded in January 2016 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with a vision set to promote and publish cutting edge research in the general fields of Social Sciences and Humanities, Business and Economics, Teaching and Education, Science and Technology, from interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives. Through monographs and the proceedings of the Harvard Square Symposium® the Scientific Press® seeks to reunite promising and well established scholars in a creative environment to propose holistic ways of thinking by nurturing the engagement of the global intellectual elite into conversations meant to tackle the new challenges faced by the mankind. It is a compassionate intellectual conversation which attempts to go beyond the existing paradigms of competitive thinking into collaborative thinking. The Scientific Press® welcomes manuscripts and paper conferences from university professors, graduate students, researchers, scientists and practitioners from every field of inquiry.
