Springer Nature Asks for Input on New OA Publishing Approach

Springer Nature shared a blog post in which it “sets out a new approach to research publishing with the goal of increasing the demand from authors to immediately publish their research open access (OA) and growing the supply of journals able to publish OA, potentially enabling even highly selective journals such as Nature to transition to OA.” Publishers would become active drivers of the OA movement.

The company is asking for opinions on its new publishing standard, called Transformative Publishing. “Ultimately, transformative publishers would move to being at the forefront of measuring, reporting on, and promoting the benefits of OA and be required to commit to continuously increase the average level of OA take-up across its whole journal portfolio, at least at the rate of funding from research funding bodies, institutions and consortia.”

For more information, read the press release.
