Our services for authors, reviewers, and editors help keep research in motion throughout your publishing career. Focusing on the unique needs at each stage of the publishing process, our services help strengthen the impact, speed, and quality of research. Whether you’re writing your first article or fifth book, reviewing papers as a peer reviewer, or serving as a journal editor, your focus should only be on doing your best work. See how we keep you on a path of success. 

1: Journal Suggester

When you're preparing to publish, selecting a journal from the thousands of scholarly journals out there can feel daunting. The Springer Nature Journal Suggester makes it easy to find the best fit for your research with journal matching technology. We'll help you narrow down your list to relevant journals based on your manuscript details. The suggestions can help you further refine your search with information on impact factor, decision time, and acceptance rate.

2: e.Proofing

Editing doesn’t have to be a chore. e.Proofing easily allows for you to make corrections to your article, book chapter, or entire book proof online. Easily navigate your changes as you edit, making corrections right into the text, tables, equations, and figure captions. Send the edits back to the production department instantly, and see your research published faster. 

3: Open Access Publishing 

Every researcher has unique publishing requirements and needs. As a pioneer of open research, we have a variety of options for publishing your research open access. With one of the world’s most significant open access portfolios, we have nearly 600 fully open access journals, 2,000+ hybrid journals, and 900+ open access books. If this is the right direction for your research, we offer a free open access support service to help  you find funding for your article or book processing charges. 

4: Transfer Desk

Rejections are an unpleasant reality of publishing, and many times they simply occur because your paper wasn't the right fit for the journal. When your paper is transferred, the Transfer Desk team saves you valuable time by finding fitting journals for re-submission. You have the final decision on whether or no to resubmit, but in most cases, if you agree to re-submission, it can be done automatically. As an editor of a journal the service will take on a new role, allowing you to discover submissions for your journal that you would have missed out on.

5: SharedIt

Sharing your research publicly doesn’t have to lead to a paywall. SharedIt makes it easy to share your research anywhere. Links to view-only, full-text articles allow you to share research with your colleagues, family, and friends. Proudly display your research on your website or social media accounts.

6: Your Book in Multiple Formats

When you're ready to write a book, our publishing models allows for your work to get into as many hands as possible by offering it in multiple formats. In addition to traditional print copies, and e-books optimized for tablets and phones; students with SpringerLink access will have chapter PDFs and an affordable MyCopy printed version.


Ensure your identity is always linked to your work. ORCID iDs are unique identifiers for researchers that distinguish you from others with similar names, and link you to your work even if your name changes during your career. Our partnership with ORCID makes it easy to attach your ORCID iD at the author and reviewer stage, showcasing your articles and peer reviews. 

8. Reviewer Finder

Finding suitable peer reviewers for a manuscript can be a challenging, time-consuming task. Reviewer Finder makes the process easier and faster when you reach an editorial role in your publishing career. The easy-to-use tool helps you find relevant reviewers based on the paper’s title, authors, abstract, and keywords.
