is Springer's portfolio of fully open access journals
, which cover all disciplines within the science, technology, and medicine (STM) fields, giving authors the opportunity to publish open access
. SpringerOpen is committed to maintaining high standards through full and stringent peer review. Many of the SpringerOpen journals are citation-tracked and some already have Impact Factors. All research articles published in a SpringerOpen journal may be freely accessed, re-used and re-distributed. SpringerOpen supports several international archives and digital repositories, and encourages self-archiving by authors.
The growing demand for open access publishing across all disciplines led Springer to expand the open access program to fully open access books
. As further addition to the already established SpringerOpen journal portfolio
now authors in all areas of science, technology and medicine (STM) have the option to publish open access books.
