Springer's new open access journal SpringerPlus is an addition to the publishing company's SpringerOpen portfolio, underlining its flexible publication strategy. It is the publisher's first open access journal with a broad interdisciplinary approach covering the entire scientific spectrum.
If a manuscript meets the necessary scientific criteria as determined by peer review, the paper will be accepted immediately and without major revision. The only thing that counts is the high quality of research described. The peer review process is organized efficiently so that authors can count on a very short time to publication. SpringerPlus is published as an online-only journal.
SpringerPlus will feature interdisciplinary manuscripts describing original research, case studies and methods. The journal guarantees a high standard of scientific quality while extending the range of data formats, accepting audiovisual formats, data reports, and extensive tables either as complete articles or part of the paper. There will be no restrictions on the number of words or figures, and articles detailing statistically negative correlation will be considered.
