Amplifying the author’s voice

Giving context to your work can help add to the value and impact of your research. Springer Nature offers several ways to help you tell your story. 

A lot more goes into your work than appears in the published article or book—the inspirations, the insights, the reasons for the decisions made. All of this gives context to the final published work. And we want to help you bring all of that to light—to help amplify your voice. 

We offer several ways to do that, and we're here to help you along the way.
