The Knowers Ark publishing adheres to rigorous standards and strives for an impartial and comprehensive presentation of the most relevant information necessary for both accurate and adequate education. All sources are carefully chosen and
Charitable distribution of a large portion of each press run (usually 15%) is normal.
The Knowers Ark's electronic publishing efforts have produced accessible web sites which
now include the entire contents of the recent paper publications, with additional links,
sources and downloadable briefing sheets.
To fulfill our educational mandate and reach the largest possible readership, we publish both electronically and on paper — the paper posters assist thousands
of people not reached by the internet and provide a coherent multi-use overview on one piece of paper for which there is no equivalent in the electronic medium.
The website is needed because many internet users are
not going to purchase a printed piece. For most, free access is their only access.
Over 100,000 people used our
website last year.
Other than one small grant in 1998, the maps and websites have been funded and produced
entirely through the support of volunteers, unpaid
staff, friends, and sales of the affordably priced paper products.
