OpenCorporates is a proud supporter of academic research and has been a core resource relied upon by researchers and investigators. While our online platform remains free for all, we collaborate with researchers so they can use our Open Data API & do custom data extracts on request. We believe open data and company information has a lot of value for the wider society. The following is a list of published articles and reports that use opencorporates. We appreciate the work done by others but take no responsibility for the content.

If you’re work isn’t listed here, you can submit to us on research@opencorporates.com.
