Celebrating 1000 open access books

In May 2020 we published our 1000th open access book. It's a proud moment for us, especially as open access books help to achieve our mission of advancing discovery through open research.

"Open access increases the visibility, readership, and impact of scholarly books, and we are delighted to be at the forefront in helping more authors benefit from this, given the important role books play in scholarly communication."

- Ros Pyne, Director, Open Access Books and Book Policies at Springer Nature.
