idw was established in 2002 as a registered non-profit association with offices in Bayreuth, Bochum and Clausthal, Germany.
Membership is open to any institutions which can prove that they are actively engaged in scientific research, academic teaching, research promotion, science-related political activity or research and technology transfer, and which conduct their own press and public relations work.
In order to ensure a high quality standard, the member institutions are only allowed to publish scientific content from their own institutions. Advertising content is not permissible.
You can reference content from idw publications in several different ways. More detailed information about our channels is available on the idw homepage: idw-online.de.
