Springer Nature's BookSubmarine Streamlines Publication of Theses and Dissertations
Springer Nature launched the BookSubmarine portal, which helps authors from all academic disciplines submit their dissertations or postdoctoral theses for publication and keep tabs on the status of their contracts and submissions. They enter the required data into the portal and select the publication model (OA, basic, or premium), and then expert editors assess their work. If accepted, a manuscript enters production, with Springer Nature providing the typesetting and formatting in XML so it is fully searchable and can be archived. Publications will be available in print and as ebooks on SpringerLink.
“The portal is a secure way of storing all documentation and data related to a submission together in one place which makes the overall publication process more streamlined and efficient,” says Dorothee Fetzer, Springer Nature’s editorial director for humanities. “Springer Nature is constantly working on new processes, systems and technologies to improve its services for authors and customer experience.”
