Why write or edit a book? Why publish it here?

A book gives you the chance at more depth—and breadth—than a journal article. And while writing a book may seem like a daunting task—with all your other responsibilities—you can get help at every step from a Publishing Editor.

Why should you consider publishing a book with us?

  • Progressive book publishing model. Not only is Springer Nature a leader on open access books, but even with traditional books, a library only has to purchase an eBook once for every individual affiliated with that library to have unfettered access to that eBook. Learn more about this unique approach.
  • On average a Springer Nature eBook is downloaded more than 8,000 times in the first year of publication and cited 40 times during the first four years of publication.
  • 89% of Springer Nature book authors rated their experience as “excellent” or “good”. Authors like you have enjoyed their book experience with Springer Nature.
  • Work with an experienced Publishing Editor who will work with you through every stage of writing and preparing your book, and advocate for you within the company.
