Aims and scope

Inclusive scope. SpringerPlus accepts scientifically sound research from all disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Humanities & Social Sciences. Most article types can be considered.

Easy submission. Manuscripts are submitted to SpringerPlus through the website, and also as transfers from other Springer Nature Journals. There are no restrictions on word or figure count and extensive formatting is not needed before submission; we will review manuscripts in any appropriate format.

High quality guarantee. All submissions are screened for research and publication ethics, before entering academic peer review. Reviewers are asked to focus on the validity of the data and conclusions presented; manuscripts are never rejected for reasons of scope, perceived importance, novelty or ability to attract citations. Our Editors work with Authors to improve manuscripts, with the guarantee that all scientifically sound research is accepted.

Fast and transparent editorial process. Review and decisions are fast and our editorial policy is clear: a decision will be made on the version submitted, Authors will never be asked for additional research. Authors are encouraged to submit peer review reports acquired during any previous submissions of the manuscript; these may be considered as part of the final decision at SpringerPlus.
