Access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy is crucial to achieving many of the Sustainable Development Goals – from poverty eradication to mitigating climate change. Energy access, however, varies widely across countries. Energy Poverty is defined as the lack of access to sustainable modern energy services and products.

We invite you to explore a specially curated selection of recent research on the topic of Energy Poverty.

Your work here: Information for Authors

Contact a publishing editor © Mitarart, iStockphotoGetting started publishing your SDG 7 work at Springer Nature is easy. Springer Nature aspires to lead in publishing SDG research, and especially in open access (OA) SDG research.

You can add impact and power to your SDG-related research when you publish it at Springer Nature, and alongside leading research (like the examples above). Research published OA at Springer Nature gets more exposure. For example, research published in fully OA Springer Nature journals are downloaded over 7,000 times on average (up to 5x more than competitors) and cited 7.39 times on average.

Publishing with Springer Nature gives you:

  • A range of journals, from Nature, Springer, and BMC, both hybrid and OA. The journals with SDG content curated above are a small selection of journals you can publish in. Clicking through on them will give you the information — including journal metrics, submission guidelines and more — that you need to plan your next submission.
  • The world’s leading scholarly book program, including the option to publish your book OA. ᐅSDG 7 OA Books
  • Support in finding funding for OA. Many funders and institutions now cover open access (OA) journal article publishing costs for affiliated researchers, as part of an OA agreement with Springer Nature. Find out more about OA agreements and whether you may be entitled to publish OA journal articles with your fees covered. The OA funding support service can help you find and access other OA publishing funds — for journal articles and books — to which you may be entitled.  ᐅOA Agreements  Funding Support Service  The impact of OA
