Springer Nature and LYRASIS to Produce OA Books Supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Springer Nature signed an agreement with LYRASIS to enter into a sponsoring partnership for the publication of a suite of OA books covering climate change, equity, peace, and justice—areas that support the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Springer Nature is already publishing works related to the SDGs with its dedicated SDG series. The new OA books will be published under a CC BY 4.0 license by Springer Nature imprints Springer and Palgrave Macmillan and will be freely available on SpringerLink.

Celeste Feather, senior director for content and scholarly communication initiatives at LYRASIS, says, “We are excited to establish the LYRASIS UN Sustainability Development Goal Book Publishing Fund that allows our members to support the production and dissemination of knowledge to readers around the world. As we collaborate to address the global challenges outlined in the SDGs, students, teachers, researchers, and global citizens need access to the latest research to further progress. This new program offers an opportunity for every library to engage and support book publishing on these important topics that academic institutions are addressing through teaching and research.”
