Meet us at Chemical Society of Japan Annual Meeting

Wednesday, March 22, 2023 – Saturday, March 25, 2023 - Chiba

Come see the latest Chemistry books—and talk to the editors that published them. This is your chance—if you’re attending Chemical Society of Japan Annual Meeting —to talk one-on-one with Springer Nature editors, to see new and essential books (and hold them in your hands!), and more.

When you visit Springer Nature in our booth, you can talk to some of the most experienced editors working scholarly publishing. These experts can answer any questions you might have and can explain the ins and outs of today’s publishing landscape, including open access (OA), what’s involved in writing and publishing a book, and more.
We welcome you to browse the full portfolio of Chemistry at Springer and Nature Portfolio here. On these pages you will find more detailed information about our books, journals, and services highlighted especially for Chemical Society of Japan Annual Meeting.

Springer Nature's world-class imprints

Get answers from expert editors—here’s who you will meet at our booth

You’re attending Chemical Society of Japan Annual Meeting because you have results to share. But what’s the best way to reach the widest appropriate audience? The Springer Nature editors who are here can help answer that question. You can take the opportunity to meet us. If you haven’t written a book before, they can give you a quick introduction to the process. And if you have, they can show you how publishing a book with Springer and Nature Portfolio would be different from other publishers. They can also help answer any questions you might have about Springer and Nature Portfolio journals.

Open access

Serving the global research community with openness, rigor, quality, and transparency

Researchers have published more open access (OA) articles in Springer Nature journals than anywhere else—over a million of them, as of 2021. They publish here because they expect the best of OA innovation combined with scholarly publishing tradition. Authors can publish their work either in a fully-OA journal (there are about 600 to choose from) or around 2,000 hybrid journals.

Publishing OA can lead to greater impact. Studies show that OA articles are viewed and cited more often than articles behind a paywall. For example, on average, researchers downloaded OA articles 6 times more, cited them 1.6 times more, and gave them 4.9 times higher Altmetric Attention Scores. Authors can also make use of a free OA support service that makes it easier to discover and apply for funding to cover Article-Processing Charges (APCs).

Serving the community also has to mean transforming existing journals to fully-OA. More than 1,700 Springer Nature journals have already committed to this as Transformative Journals (TJs), and are registered with coalition S. Ultimately, serving the research community means research that’s open to all. And the only way to achieve full, immediate, and sustainable OA is by priortising investment in gold OA.

Below you’ll find a selection of OA journals and books that our editors have chosen as of particular interest for Chemical Society of Japan Annual Meeting.


The Plaston Concept Open Access

I. Tanaka, N. Tsuji, H. Inui

The Plaston Concept

I. Tanaka


  • Enables readers to learn the state of the art of the emerging research area efficiently

How can your institution or funder help you publish open access?

One way is if your institution or funder has one of the more than 20 Transformative Agreements (TA) with Springer Nature. TAs cover article-processing charges (APCs) for affiliated researchers, so they can publish gold OA in the many Springer Nature journals these TAs include, with the APCs handled centrally.

Learn more about TAs.

Advancing your institution’s discoveries

What if you could get your researchers the tools and services they need to write and publish their work more quickly, more efficiently, and more effectively? Introducing Path to Publish from Springer Nature, a suite of tools and services your researchers can use to overcome their most common obstacles and speed bumps.
