acting with integrity and honesty in fulfilling our role in the dissemination and discovery of scholarly communication

STM participates in the development of information identification protocols and electronic copyright management systems. STM members are kept fully up to date (via newsletters, the STM website, and e-mail) about the issues which will ultimately affect their business. STM organises seminars,training courses, and conferences. Its General Assembly is held annually, one day preceding the Frankfurt Book Fair.
