We are proud to be the largest publisher of open access content; last year, Springer Nature published more immediate open access articles than any other publisher.
We encourage preprint posting and self-archiving of author accepted manuscripts and have some of the most liberal policies of any publisher.
We were the first major publisher to enable sharing of subscription content; our free content-sharing initiative, SharedIt, provides shareable links to view-only versions of papers in subscription journals.
We are committed to helping researchers take open approaches to their data wherever possible. As a publisher we want to advance discovery by supporting data sharing.
We make research accessible to a wide audience through our award-winning journalistic content, and with local language editions of Scientific American we reach a wider geographic audience.
We make our content available via machine readable interfaces. Our references are available via CrossRef and reference lists together with broader open linked data are accessible via SciGraph.
