About our mission

Hikari aims to provide high-level quality service in scientific publishing. We aim our journals to maintain the highest international standards of quality, with editorial boards composed of scholars well known around the world. We combine the standards of scientific quality together with efficient peer-review process. Hikari provides free access to our books and free access to all papers of published issues of our journals. Forthcoming issues and articles in press contain papers which have been peer reviewed, accepted, copy edited and formatted. Articles in press are citable but should not be considered as a final form of publication since text could still change before final publication. We will continue to keep our growing force in the scientific publishing and develop the high quality knowledge-based products and service for the scientific, academic and research communities worldwide.
