We aim to partner with your institution on all aspects of open research

Our priority is to learn about your current requirements, processes and goals for the future, and offer support to your institution.

If you have an open research initiative in the works, we’d love to hear from you. Whether you’re streamlining an administrative process or raising general awareness, please get in touch if there are any aspects of open research or related topics you’d like to discuss.

OA funding support service

Springer Nature offers an open access (OA) funding support service to make it easier for authors to discover and apply for article processing charge (APC) funding.

Not only will we be happy to help your researchers investigate potential OA funding sources, we can also advise on how to meet funder or institutional OA policy requirements when publishing in Springer Nature journals. You'll also find a list of organisations that provide OA funding, frequently asked questions about policy and funding, and a checklist to support authors at any stage in their publication process.
