Springer partners with the Australian Neuroscience Society

New book partnership will open Australian neuroscience to a wider, international audience

Springer and the Australian Neuroscience Society (ANS) have entered into a new partnership to publish a series of book titles in neuroscience. The new titles will be available via SpringerLink (link.springer.com). The society will maintain editorial direction for the books, while Springer will be responsible for production and distribution.
“ANS is delighted to be entering into this publishing partnership with Springer,” said ANS Secretary, Joe Lynch. “Teaming up with Springer will enhance the society's international appeal by providing a high profile means to disseminate Australian neuroscience research. We are certain that these new avenues of distribution will serve the goals of ANS well.”
Springer and the ANS aim to publish three contributed volumes per year, all of which will be focused on general topics in neuroscience, and should be of interest to those whose research focus is the brain and the nervous system. By partnering with Springer, the society stands to benefit from the publisher’s global marketing and distribution networks.
“Like with all our society partners, Springer is excited to have been chosen for this new venture,” said Carolyn Honour, Springer’s Editorial Director for Biomedicine. “We are excited to collaborate with the ANS on a book partnership that will create worldwide visibility and ease of access to the valuable work of its researchers.”
