Springer’s new open-access journal, SpringerPlus, 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, says the publisher, which is aiming for a transparent and fast publication process for the new title.

SpringerPlus will feature interdisciplinary manuscripts describing original research, case studies and methods. It also accepts 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, says the publisher.

‘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.
