SDG 7: Journals & Collections

So many researchers like you have chosen Springer Nature for their UN SDG 7-related research that they’ve made Springer Nature the leading publisher for this world-changing work.

SN SDG logo © Springer Nature 2019Why? Because: Policy makers, business leaders, and fellow researchers already know to come to Springer Nature to find important research in SDG 7. Because Springer Nature works with the SDG Publishers Compact and leading institutions like the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). And because Springer Nature offers some of the best venues to publish in, including the options to publish in a fully open access (OA) journal, or to publish OA in a hybrid journal.

We invite you to explore - and to submit your next paper to one of the journals or collections listed below.

Journal open access agreements

00G7H_LP-SDG11_Visual Creation © Springer NatureResearchers at more than 3,450 institutions worldwide are benefitting from transformative agreements (TAs) with Springer Nature—and that number is growing.

These agreements cover the open access (OA) journal article publishing costs for researchers at those institutions. Find out more about OA agreements and whether you may be entitled to publish OA with your fees covered.

Benefits of publishing your SDG7-related research openly include increased citation and usage, greater public engagement, faster impact and compliance with open access mandates.

Benefits of publishing in a journal collection

What are some of the benefits of publishing in a collection?

Context: Your results and research will appear alongside others working on the same question—helping put your work in the proper context. 

Expert guidance: An expert Guest Editor, known to you and your colleagues in your field—who understands your work more completely than the journal’s regular Editors. 

Timely review and publication: Because a collection has a time focus, the journal places extra effort on timely review and publication.

Improved visibility: Because journals often feature topical collections on their home pages, your work will be more readily visible as compared to publishing in a regular issue or sequence.
