Research data

Who can use Research Data Support

Springer Nature Research Data Support is available to any researcher who would like help to organise and share the research data that support their published research.

Authors who have already published their research

Research Data Support is available to all published researchers, independent of where their research was published or in what format it was published (including books, journal articles, monographs and pre-prints). The service accepts data related to research published by Springer Nature or by other publishers.

Your data will be checked and improved by our Research Data Editors and the final published dataset will link to your published research.

To access the service, please complete this form and upload your data.
