Change the World

Read groundbreaking scientific findings that could help humanity and protect our planet

With Springer Nature’s vast library of research, we recognize that world-changing articles may be out there, just waiting for the right combination of minds to make a critical connection. 

That’s why we’ve created the Change the World, One Article at a Time initiative. We’ve asked the Editors-in-Chief of Springer Nature journals across disciplines to select the scientific findings published in 2017 that they believe could have an impact on society's most pressing problems.

Quotes

What impact do you think that the Springer Nature Change the World campaign can have in addressing the global societal and scientific grand challenges?

The campaign brings in timely articles to people, increasing visibility as the selected articles are temporarily made available without a subscription. Change the World project is essentially an “editor’s choice” selection, and so it raises the profile of research that is not just good in an academic sense, but that is also inspiring.

Prof. Kazuhiko Takeuchi, EiC of Sustainability Science

It is a worthwhile effort as the publications by Springer have quite an impact – at least on the scientific communities. Let’s still hope on the impact of the legacies of the Age of Enlightenment – as the late Neil Postman and recently Steven Pinker tried.

György Széll, the Chief Editor of Asian Journal of German and European Studies

Recognizing the most-clicked article in last year’s Change the World initiative! 

Watch the interview with Linda Koch, Chief Editor of Nature Reviews Genetics, who nominated the article - Towards precision medicine by Euan A. Ashley. Hear why she chose this article and its potential to help “Change the World”.

In recognition of the article’s success we are pleased to offer free access until the end of July 31, 2018.

The inspiration for the Change the World initiative

In the interview with Ulrike Graiff, Marketing Director Springer Nature, hear why we launched this initiative and are proudly presenting must-read articles across all disciplines that could help change the world! 

With this initiative, we not only want to support authors who are tackling today’s global challenges to facilitate real change, we also hope to promote a sense of community among our publishing partners and customers, and show that we can make a difference – one article at a time.
