Springer Nature Convenes US Research Advisory Council

Springer Nature launched the US Research Advisory Council (USRAC), which will meet annually at a roundtable workshop to advise on research culture and how research can contribute to a more equitable society. The first workshop, held June 15, 2021, discussed how COVID-19 has affected research and research communications. The press release shares that the council “was organized by a Springer Nature steering group and task force representing its diversity of research publishing and solutions activity including books, journals, magazines and databases, which included Laura Helmuth, editor in chief of Scientific American, and Magdalena Skipper, editor in chief of Nature.”

Other participants include Welmoed Spahr (Springer Nature’s VP of applied computing and video development for books), Harry Blom (Springer Nature’s VP of policy, development, and strategy for journals), and Rachel Burley (president of Research Square). USRAC membership will rotate in order to bring in fresh perspectives.

For more information and the list of current council members, read the press release.
