Springer Author Academy

Welcome to the Springer Author Academy, a guide from Springer and Edanz.

Before you begin, it may be useful to remind yourself of why publishing your work is important. You might need to publish in order to graduate, get a job, or advance your career. But first take a moment to think about two of the most important aims of scientists:

  • To add to the body of human knowledge
  • To help yourself and others understand the nature of the universe

You can’t accomplish these goals without publishing! After all, the main way that others learn about your work is through your published articles. If you don’t publish, other researchers can’t build on your work; it will be as if you never did the research. In other words: Your research is NOT complete until it has been published.

In our Author Academy you will find detailed advice on

  • How to publish a journal article
  • How to prepare a book manuscript
  • Peer review and what it means to an author
  • Open access publishing
