The Rufford Foundation is a major long-term supporter of Oryx, and also funded the development of the journal’s Writing for Conservation guide. The Foundation recognizes the value of open access publishing and the special role that Oryx plays in building capacity and enabling researchers to publish their research no matter where they live or work. The Rufford Foundation is supporting the journal’s transition to open access, ensuring that lack of funding is no barrier to publishing in Oryx. The support from The Rufford Foundation has also allowed us to make historical content freely available: volumes 1–54 of Oryx (1950–2020) are now free to access.

Oryx is grateful for the support of additional donors such as John Spedan Lewis Foundation and the Thriplow Charitable Trust.
