Founded in 2004 as Newstex, today ACI Information Group is the world’s leading aggregator of editorially selected and curated social media publications. With over 10,000 scholarly blogs generating more than one million scholarly blog posts in its indices, ACI is revolutionizing the way people conduct research by enabling them to find the content they’ve been missing. Professionals, researchers, scholars, and students use the highly authoritative insights and analyses provided through ACI’s editorially selected collection of social media publications to find information that is unavailable in traditional media and journals. Publishers choose to include their content in the ACI Index to reach new audiences and bolster real-time scholarly communications and post-publication discourse.

Our focus is simple.

Identify and license authoritative social media publications authored by professionals in the academic, corporate, government, and nonprofit sectors.

Our promise is powerful.

Provide professionals, researchers, scholars and students with an editorially selected and curated collection of social media publications that provide relevant insights, analysis, and research unavailable in traditional media and journals.

We deliver on our promise in three ways:

  • Our multinational team applies a rigorous editorial process to identify, select, license, and curate social media publications of the highest caliber; 
  • We create and maintain the ACI Indices which provide free and subscription access to metadata, abstracts and full-text within our collections; 
  • We partner with professional and academic database providers to integrate our collections into their research platforms. 

With tens of thousands of social media publications and millions of articles, ACI helps researchers find insightful content they’ve been missing.
