The Latest News From Springer Nature

Springer Nature announced that it is the first publisher to join the Generation Valuable mentoring program created by the Valuable 500, which “aims to develop the next generation of leaders with disabilities by matching a mentee with a member of its Executive team. The [program] is specifically designed to address the gap in disability talent at all levels as well as the absence of disability leaders in the executive ranks.” The first mentor will be Carolyn Honour, Springer Nature’s chief commercial officer, and the first mentee will be Jude Robinson, Springer Nature’s global head of front end development. Robinson led “the team that produced the accessibility software Pa11y, establishing and heading up the Accessibility Enablement function and founding the Accessibility Steering Group.”

Springer Nature also announced that it “has increased its investment in Research Square Company (RSC) to take full ownership.” Both companies aim “to provide faster, better, quality-assured author solutions. This includes helping authors improve their manuscripts prior to submission and share their research both before and after publication.” RSC is made up of “American Journal Experts (AJE), which provides best-in-class AI-powered and professionally delivered author solutions, and Research Square, the world’s number one multi-disciplinary preprint platform.”

“Springer Nature’s acquisition of Research Square Company builds on a wonderful partnership developed over many years, based on our common values. It allows our teams to work even more closely together to create a more researcher-centred publishing ecosystem,” says Shashi Mudunuri, RSC’s founder.

“Combining expertise across both companies enables us to provide best-in-class author solutions, so that all researchers can be assessed fairly and equally on the quality of their work. It puts us on the path to become the number one platform and solutions provider for open science,” adds Harsh Jegadeesan, Springer Nature’s chief solutions officer.
