Transparent and fast publication process for authors in a journal with
guaranteed high scientific standards

Berlin / New York / London, 12 January 2012

Springer’s new open access journal SpringerPlus is a further addition
to the publishing company’s SpringerOpen portfolio, underlining its
flexible publication strategy. It is the publisher’s first open access
journal with a broad interdisciplinary approach covering the entire
scientific spectrum. Papers from emerging areas of research are
welcome.

A transparent and fast publication process is the hallmark of
SpringerPlus. If a manuscript meets the necessary scientific criteria
as determined by peer review, the paper will be accepted immediately
and without major revision. The only thing that counts is the high
quality of research described. The peer review process is organized
efficiently so that authors can count on a very short time to
publication. SpringerPlus is published as an online-only journal.

SpringerPlus will feature interdisciplinary manuscripts describing
original research, case studies and methods. The journal guarantees a
high standard of scientific quality while extending the range of data
formats, accepting audiovisual formats, data reports, and extensive
tables either as complete articles or part of the paper. There will be
no restrictions on the number of words or figures, and articles
detailing statistically negative correlation will be considered.

“SpringerPlus follows an interdisciplinary approach that allows us to
bridge the gap for all those authors unable to find an open access
journal at the interface with adjoining disciplines for their research
topic,” explained Peter Hendriks, President STM Global Publishing&
Marketing at Springer.

Springer ensures distribution to the widest possible audience,
maximizing visibility and citations. Like all other SpringerOpen
journals, SpringerPlus will be published under the Creative Commons
Attribution License. This means that authors retain copyright and all
content is freely available in full to everyone immediately. Authors
will be assessed a standard open access fee.

Springer began publishing individual open access papers through its
Springer Open Choice model in 2004. Since then, the publishing group
has refined and extended this publication model. In summer 2010,
Springer launched a new open access portfolio which now contains more
than 60 purely open access journals focusing on specific research
areas. The interdisciplinary approach of SpringerPlus supplements this
open access portfolio. Anyone with an internet connection can access
the articles in these journals without a subscription.
