Resources & Tools

We strive to support our editors with the tools, training, and services they need for success. We want to make the role easier and more enjoyable so editors can focus on publishing the best research.

Our editors are the research community's champions. The role is rewarding, but formal training is rarely given. We supply ideas and guidance with practical advice from our Springer Nature editorial guides, editor case studies, and brand-specific information. We make sharing your journal's research easy, recognizing your authors for their work seamless, and finding the right peer reviewers less of a burden. Let us help you do your best work as an editor.
