Google publishes hundreds of research papers each year. Publishing is important to us; it enables us to collaborate and share ideas with, as well as learn from, the broader scientific community. Submissions are often made stronger by the fact that ideas have been tested through real product implementation by the time of publication.

We believe the formal structures of publishing today are changing - in computer science especially, there are multiple ways of disseminating information.  We encourage publication both in conventional scientific venues, and through other venues such as industry forums, standards bodies, and open source software and product feature releases.

Open Source

We understand the value of a collaborative ecosystem and love open source software.

Product and Feature Launches

With every launch, we're publishing progress and pushing functionality.

Industry Standards

Our researchers are often helping to define not just today's products but also tomorrow's.

Resources

"Resources" doesn't just mean tangible assets but also intellectual. Incredible datasets and a great team of colleagues foster a rich and collaborative research environment.

Impact

Couple big challenges with big resources and Google offers unprecedented research opportunities.
