"Ever since I had my article published in first issue of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (Vol 1, Nr. 1, 1976), I was looking to publish a book with Springer. In 2011, I received an invitation from Springer to develop and publish my book, EAR RECONSTRUCTION, which came out in 2013. Afterwards I have had five books published by Springer under excellent relationships with all the people in charge of publication. As I have published 25 books in the scientific and Brazilian literature, I am glad to certify that Springer is an outstanding publisher and a very well qualified organization. We have had a wonderful relationship, and I feel comfortable to declare that it is a great pleasure to work with Springer."
"I found the experience of working with the publication team at Springer to be most positive. All members of the publication team process from beginning to end were most responsive in facilitating the process of getting the text into publication. The Springer Nature publication team is very author-centric and responsive when questions or needs arise. "
"The job of an author does not end after completing the manuscript. It’s just the first phase of the journey which culminates once the book is in the hands of the reader and a good publishing house is the ‘travel’ companion.
I have enjoyed each phase of my journey as a Medical author with Springer Publishers. They are open to new ideas, methodical in the publication process and have a good dedicated team which makes the ride smooth. The proposal contract process is transparent and makes sure that the author is not blindsided later in the process. I would love to continue publishing with Springer, 'happily ever after'."
"Key for efficient book production is an integrated production chain. We benefited from Springer's support of Latex text processing, which guarantees high-quality type-setting and consistency. Key for effective book dissemination is global market reach. Our „Fundamentals of Business Process Management” is used in more than 250 universities in 70 countries, thanks to Springer's network of international distribution partners.”
"Publishing the book of Nuclear Cardiology – Basic and Advanced Concepts in Clinical Practice with SPRINGER was the fulfilment of a dream of many years. When I was the President of the Brazilian Society of
Nuclear Medicine, I realized the need for a book that approached in a practical way the performance and interpretation of nuclear medicine exams in the clinic, allowing doctors to make useful decisions for the lives of patients. The experience of editing the book with my colleague Dr. Maria Fernanda Rezende was very good. The Associate Editor in Clinical Medicine, Vanessa Shimabukuro approached us in a very professional way and supported us in every step towards the completion of the book. There were dozens of collaborators in multiple countries who interacted in a very positive way and the result shows the importance of the international collaborative effort in science. I look forward to the opportunity to publish other books through Springer."
"I have been impressed by the extraordinary enthusiasm of the Springer team about publishing high quality books in computer science and artificial intelligence fields. When the team contacted me for publishing the English version of my machine learning book, originally written in Chinese with 500,000+ copies sold in China, I agreed immediately and hope it will become our joint success. The publication process was very smooth and I got tremendous support from the editorial staffs. It is a pleasant experience to work with such a highly professional and highly friendly team.”

"It was a very special moment at the outset of my independent scientific career when I was approached by a Senior Editor from Springer, with a request to work on a book on Proteases in Apoptosis. Since then, I have been associated with Springer and have published two books as an Editor. This journey has been a wonderful learning experience and I thoroughly enjoyed working with the extremely professional and supportive editorial team of Springer. Hoping for many more collaborative endeavors in the future.”
"During my scientific career, I have published several books with different publishers but the collaboration with Springer has proved to be the most satisfying and rewarding. In fact, I was able to rely on a highly professional and at the same time very collaborative and friendly editorial staff. The result of this fruitful synergistic activity led to the publication of some successful biomedical books that have reached many thousands of downloads in a few years, and the launch of a new Series covering the fields of microbiology, infectious diseases, and public health."

"With very little experience in all of the many processes related to book editing and publication, our research team was excited about the book, but a little intimidated by the process. The team at Springer was open and communicative about timelines and expectations early on. As one of the editors, I received many questions from the authors (during “crunch time” there were MANY) and these were answered thoroughly by Springer staff. The overall timeline of the book delivery was optimistic, and we met our deadlines with no problem. Please consider submitting a book proposal. This won’t be a process you’ll move through alone."
Our book went online on Nov 12, 2019 and I am delighted to see that within a year there are over 10,000 chapter downloads. This speaks a lot about Springer. It was a great experience to edit a book for Springer. Once book title and chapters were approved, our editorial team has an auto-pilot experience. Springer team was very patient with the final chapter submission deadlines and for each step provided a team of experienced professionals. The final product looks very good and we editors received rave reviews on its looks and contents. The entire process was handled by Springer in highly professional manner with friendly attitude. I would like to encourage some of my colleagues to give Springer a try. I would love to do another book after one year.
"I have been very pleased with the assistance and professionalism of Springer in producing the three books of mine that have appeared in 2018, 2019, and 2020. All the staff have been more than helpful and I enthusiastically recommend Springer to other authors."
"I published my first book The Heterogeneity of Cancer Metabolism with Springer in 2018 which has accumulated 27,000 downloads. I was thrilled to be invited again this year to publish the second edition of the book, the Open Access edition, which will be available in the near future. I enjoyed my experience working with Springer as they helped me to navigate the various steps of the publishing process. I would love to have more opportunities to work with Springer in the future."
"It has been a great pleasure to work with Springer. Their staff have made the publishing process much easier than expected. I have published four books by Springer in the last a few years and the publishing processes have been very enjoyable and rewarding! I am looking forward to working with Springer again."
"I have edited 9 books which were published by Springer. Two more are in progress. I greatly appreciate the promptness of the staff of Springer Nature, India. I am amazed at the pace at which they work in processing the manuscript and getting it ready for publishing. I have always liked to publish my books by Springer because of my pleasant experience with all employees. They are very friendly but professional in their approach. Not only myself but others also love to get their books published by Springer. I am fully satisfied with their efficiency in sales and distribution. We are informed about the performance of the books in the market."

"I have published five books with Springer for the last decade. This is a fantastic experience. The process is highly professional, and I really enjoyed the collaboration with editors and production teams. As an author, I have flexibility in creating a book, and can always count on the Springer team that the book will be produced and published in a timely manner and according to the highest technical standards. The scientific and presentation level of Springer books is very high, and it is an honor and pleasure to publish with Springer. If I am thinking of my next book, I think only of Springer."
"As my first foray into publishing, I could not have asked for a smoother and more comprehensive experience when my co-authors and I teamed up with Springer to publish “Build Your Own Blockchain”, our practical guide on the technology of distributed ledgers. We are proud that our book reaches a global audience, thanks to Springer's strong international presence and brand. Springer was a huge factor in the success of the book and I am looking forward to publishing my next book with the team again."
"I have published 5 books with Springer, and I really enjoyed working with them. First and foremost, working with Springer is starting a collaboration for life that goes far beyond just publishing a book. Quality always comes first, book visibility is key and life-long friendship is a nice side-effect. Secondly, I also appreciate the personal contacts with my publisher during several workshops to promote my book. We not only talked about possible topics for my next book on these workshops, but also had enjoyable chats about the important things in life. Finally, professionalism and focus on academic rigor is what typifies Springer the most. I have no reasons to ever switch to another publisher, and for my next book(s), I will surely knock on Springer’s door again."
"It is a fantastic experience to publish my book, Representation Learning for Natural Language Processing, with Springer. The manager and editor team of Springer is very professional, and I really enjoy the smooth publication process from book proposal to production. With the open access support from Springer Platform, our book has attracted about 270K downloads within only half a year, which is amazingly ahead of my expectation. It is really my great pleasure and luck to publish with Springer.”
"Publishing with Springer has been a great and rewarding experience. From 2005 when I published my first book to 2020 where I have 20 books with Springer, the support of the editorial team has been superb and contributed to most of my books attracting both esteemed professional reviews and huge chapter downloads. This is exemplified by my book Environmental Geoinformatics, which has attracted more than 72000 chapter downloads becoming one of the top 25% most downloaded eBooks."
"It was a great experience to work with the team from Springer who shared my enthusiasm for this endeavour. The publication process was smooth, I was supported by the editorial staff throughout the proposal, contracting and production stages with the highest competence. The team from Springer worked hard for our joint success. And this is clearly visible: The Springer Handbook of Odor, which has now reached +200k downloads after 3 years of publication!”
"Publishing with Springer has been a great experience. Over past several years, I have published 4 books with Springer. I appreciated the Editors' professional work to publish the books smoothly and timely. When I had any questions about the publishing process, they could respond and solve them as soon as possible. So, all of my books published in very short time. I am looking forward to publishing with Springer again."
"It has been a great experience publishing with Springer. I have published 6 books with Springer over the past 15 years, two of which are in their second edition. The publishing process is very smooth and the time between project proposal and a box of books showing up on your desk is remarkably short. Springer is able to produce a high quality, color, hard-cover, book at a very reasonable price. I couldn’t imagine publishing with anyone else."
"I have published three books with Springer and two others are being prepared. The first of these, ‘Urban morphology, an introduction to the study of the physical form of cities’, has reached more than 20.000 downloads and 140 citations, after four years of publication. Springer, and particularly the team of ‘The Urban Book Series’ led by Juliana Pitanguy, are effective partners in each of these experiences. From the discussion of the first ideas for a new project, to submission of proposal and referee evaluation, and finally to the preparation of the book, everything is framed by excellency and high professionalism."
“Working with Springer is an honour for me as I am surrounded with fully professional, understanding and very constructive people who always know what the best direction to take an idea to the next level, and ultimately to create a high quality, internationally significant publication. Over the last decade I came across a number of highly trained Springer professionals who always showed a human face to deal with the creation of scientific outputs. Managing the Advances in Volcanology book series that is endorsed as an official professional book set by the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth Interior is an easy task with such highly trained and open minded experts. I also greatly appreciated the support I got to create a unique book “Geoheritage of Volcanic Harrats in Saudi Arabia” published recently and the patience and guidance on the currently slowly evolving book I am preparing; “Photographic Atlas of Monogenetic Volcanism."
