Springer Nature's next-generation peer review system

Springer Nature’s mission is to make publishing research a simple and rewarding experience. That’s why we introduced Snapp, the Springer Nature Article Processing Platform, to enable research to be published as efficiently as possible.

We created Snapp to be intuitive and simple to use, and it’s designed to better meet the needs of the research community - our authors, editors, and reviewers.

Snapp is built in-house by Springer Nature, so it continuously evolves to respond to researcher needs. We’re also using user feedback to guide its development and release regular updates and new features - visit the What’s new pages to find out more.
