Introducing DocuSign for Springer Licensing Contracts

Springer is pleased to announce that all Licensing Contracts will be executed electronically using DocuSign.

DocuSign is an e-signature platform that allows for the electronic forwarding and signing of contracts. It offers a faster, more convenient way for your institution to sign and send contracts electronically without any added costs. DocuSign also provides enhanced security features to protect sensitive contract data and enables transparency for all steps of the signing process.

Electronic signatures are valid and legally binding around the world, with documents being signed in 188 countries today. The legitimacy of electronic signatures does not depend on the country where the parties are located, but on the applicable law under which the contract is entered into.
