The Medicine and Life Sciences journals portfolio includes more than 950 peer-reviewed journals covering all aspects of research from the bench to the bedside to the biosphere. Our objective is to create journals that lead their respective fields by focusing on attracting quality content, launching the right journals at the right time, and building strong partnerships with our external editors and societies. MLS journals are branded BMC, Springer, Springer Nature, and SpringerOpen and are available on the BMC.com, Nature.com and Springer.com platforms. We leverage the best of hybrid-subscription and open access business models - to become one better business and lead in the transition to Open Research in a sustainable way. To that end, more than one-third of MLS titles are fully open access. The MLS team of 150 colleagues is based in 15 SN locations around the world.
