Publish your research with Springer

To excel in biomedical sciences, aspiring and advanced researchers must be able to combine many disciplines for a single purpose. Such disciplines include anatomy, pathology, and biochemistry as well as mathematics and bioinformatics. Our online portfolio enables students and scientists to access the most relevant published biomedicine studies. In addition to biomedical sciences textbooks, you may also benefit from journals such as the Archives of Toxicology or Molecular Neurobiology


Cancer Research

There are few areas that hold as much significance for human lives as cancer research does. Scientists continuously try to find new ways of mitigating and curing seemingly incurable diseases. How much cancer research has advanced is illustrated in the books and journals available on these pages. Springer offers a distinguished selection of literature on current studies conducted by leading experts. Among our publications we count well-known and prestigious journals such as Breast Cancer Research and Treatment as well as entirely open-access ones including the Journal of Experimental & Clinical Cancer Research and Cancer Cell International.

Human Genetics & Molecular Medicine

Research on human genetics and genomics has only recently begun to show its full potential. The more scientists discover about our DNA, the likelier it becomes to cure illnesses, solve crimes and save lives. In this context, studies on molecular medicine play a seminal role. Springer supplies scholars with many renowned publications around human genetics and molecular medicine, including textbooks and open-access journals. In addition to book series such as Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology, our collection includes the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics or the Journal of Molecular Medicine.

Human Physiology

Broadly speaking, studies in the field of human physiology and anatomy seek to understand the mechanisms which help the human body to function. This objective requires a fusion of many disciplines, including biochemistry, microbiology, and cellular medicine. In order to reflect the complexity of research in human physiology, Springer offers academic textbooks and journals with various focal points. Our portfolio includes the Journal of Physiological Anthropology, the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, and our book series Perspectives in Physiology.


The science of immunology deals with all structures and processes which serve to protect the body from infectious diseases. For this purpose, researches have to identify and analyze physical responses to bacteria, viruses and other toxic substances. Our selection of the best textbooks and journals on medical and clinical immunology covers all relevant fields. Aspiring and advanced scientists can expand their knowledge through open-access publications such as the journals Immunologic Research or Immunogenetics. Laypeople may equally gain insight with the help of the book series Techniques in Life Science and Biomedicine for the Non-Expert.

Medical Microbiology & Virology

While medical microbiology examines microbes and their impact on the human body, clinical virology focuses on parasitic particles of genetic material contained in a protein coat – also known as viruses. Both disciplines are concerned with finding new ways of preventing and treating diseases. To give readers insight into current research, Springer has assembled prestigious textbooks and journals on medical microbiology, virology, and infectiology. Next to publications such as Medical Microbiology and Immunology, you will find the book series Parasitology Research Monographs as well as Emerging Infectious Diseases in the 21st Century.

Our extensive neuroscience program covers all aspects of this multifaceted subject from molecular and cellular, developmental, cognitive, behavioral and clinical to computational neuroscience. Among our publications we count well-known and prestigious journals such as Acta Neuropathologica and Brain Structure and Function as well as entirely open access journals such as Molecular Neurodegeneration and Molecular Autism. Our offerings include book series such as Advances in Neurobiology and Springer Handbook of Auditory Research, monographs, protocols, textbooks and much more.

Pharmaceutical Sciences, Pharmacology & Toxicology

The umbrella term “pharmaceutical sciences” includes pharmacology, the study of drugs and their therapeutic use, as well as toxicology, the study of poisons and their potential dangers. Both branches examine the effects of medical substances not only on the human body, but their impact within society. Our best academic textbooks and journals in pharmaceutical sciences cover topics such as clinical pharmacology, forensic and environmental toxicology such as Drug Delivery and Translational Research or Psychopharmacology.
