Springer Nature condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Our thoughts are with all those affected by the unfolding situation across the region.

We join the call for a ceasefire and the return to peace.  Peace is one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and a prerequisite for human progress.  As an academic and education publisher dedicated to building bridges of understanding, we are shocked and saddened by an act which is designed to drive people apart.  

We are concerned for our impacted staff as well as the teachers, authors and researchers with whom we interact in the region. We are offering assistance where we can and have contributed to the UN’s refugee appeal (UNHCR) as the humanitarian crisis grows.  We will continue to monitor the situation closely and offer more support where we can.
