The Springer Nature Reviewer Finder Tool

Springer Nature has developed a new tool to help editors find suitable referees for the manuscripts they handle.

The tool aims to help editors with the task of finding appropriate reviewers. The tool provides a list of potential peer reviewers, information about them and their past publications, based on matching an “under consideration” manuscript with the list of researchers in its database.
