As well as being published on our website, your research is also available on SpringerLink, Google Scholar, PubMed Central, Medline, Scopus and all other major full-text repositories (new journals are indexed in these repositories as early as possible). We also encourage deposition of raw data in open data repositories.
We offer fast publication while maintaining rigorous peer review. Our times from submission to first decision vary depending on the journal, with all content published online and open access shortly after acceptance.
We are committed to the highest standards of peer review. The Editorial Board of each journal determines their peer review policy while adhering to our rigorous standards. All of our editors are supported by our in-house Research Integrity Group who advises on policy, decision-making, plagiarism and ethics.
