Did you know? Springer Nature can offer you a wide range of journals in which to publish your research—from journals that serve close-knit research communities to ones that reach broad audiences—and can help you transfer your manuscript between many of them, if your first choice for some reason doesn’t work out?
Since July 2018, the Springer Nature Transfer Desk has helped more than 12,000 authors find suitable journals for their work, saving them time and effort in helping get their results out to the world. And although not all those authors took up the transfer offer, the vast majority have shown their appreciation—96% of those who transferred have rated their experience as a 7 out of 10. (Even many authors who ended up declining the transfer offer still appreciated our efforts—with 37% rating the service as a 7 out of 10.)
Right now, the Transfer Desk works on journals that use the Editorial Manager submission/review system—so that means almost all Springer, BMC, and SpringerOpen-branded journals, plus Scientific Reports. (We can also offer direct transfers between Nature Research journals. More functionality is coming, so watch this space.)
And here are some of the things your fellow researchers are saying about the Transfer Desk:
