Springer Collaborates With Amazonís CreateSpace for POD

Springer Science+Business Media ( has signed an agreement with CreateSpace (, part of the group of companies, that will make Springer's paperback book catalog, frontlist, midlist, and backlist, available via print on demand (POD) in the U.S. In addition to moving a significant amount of its paperback selection to POD, Springer will also supply many new paperback titles via POD only. A large number of hardcover titles are being converted to paperback for inclusion, and Springer will also make new large-print paperback editions of some of its most popular selections available via POD.

All of Springer's books will remain continuously available, ensuring that titles will never be out of stock. In addition, the development of the POD model enables publishers to economize on inventory and shipping costs associated with getting inventory to retailers.

With CreateSpace print on demand, Springer's titles can be manufactured and shipped to customers on the same day they are ordered. Springer's print-on-demand titles are also eligible for Amazon's shipping programs, including Free Super Saver Shipping and Amazon Prime, as well as enrollment in Amazon's Search Inside the Book program.
