White Papers

Springer Nature's commitment to quality content extends beyond books, journals, and databases. We have a long history of partnering with librarians and the larger scholarly community to provide white papers that support a greater understanding of the landscape we all share.

It is our intent that these projects are mutually beneficial, relevant and insightful.

Many of our white papers are produced in response to insights and input from the librarian community. Make sure you have your say by participating in our latest surveys, which, when available, will be shared on this page, and through our Library Link Newsletter and social pages.

Take our APC survey

We invite Libraries to broaden our understanding of institutional monitoring and tracking of APC payments by participating in our survey on barriers and enablers for APC monitoring. Survey deadline: 31st May
