Resources for editors

Editors are champions for their subjects and custodians of the scientific record, working to build successful journals, book resources and conferences for their community. They help ensure that their authors’ work commands the highest levels of quality and trust. We are extremely grateful to our editors, all of whom dedicate their time and expertise to helping authors improve their manuscripts. To this end, we do all we can to support them with tools, training and services.

Springer Impact Report: An indispensable core

What our Editors say

“As a long-time Editor of an open access journal, supported only by my University library, having Springer Nature take over as publisher in 2015 has changed my world. In addition to having access to a wealth of resources, information, and promotional opportunities, working closely with an enthusiastic and highly competent Development Editor has made a difference on so many levels. I now have a close colleague who cares (almost) as much as I do about the reach and impact of the journal, and who goes above and beyond to ensure the quality, efficiency and success of the journal. Thank you, Springer Nature!”

Dr Tracey Bretag, Founding Editor, International Journal for Educational Integrity.

"One of the most enjoyable aspects of serving as an Editor of an international inter-disciplinary journal is being able to read the diversity of perspectives, insights and discourses provided by contributing authors from around the world.  Of course, working with our managerial and production teams makes it both a pleasure to work with referees in reviewing these works, and easier to bring these papers to our audience and the field at-large."

Prof James Giordano, Editor-in-Chief, Philosophy, Ethics and Humanities in Medicine.

The story behind the picture


Paying people helps them overcome phobias

Nature Human Behaviour
A study by neuroscientists from the university of Cambridge along with Japanese and US colleagues has found that there could be a devastatingly simple way to cure people of their fears and phobias. Even modest financial rewards subconsciously reduced fear among participants. The method known as decoded neurofeedback is being hailed as a viable and less traumatic replacement of aversion therapy.
