Funder Compliance

Our open access journal and book options allow you to easily comply with the open access requirements of your institution, government and funding body. Almost all Springer journals, and our open access books published via the Springer imprint offer a gold open access option, which is fully compatible with many funder mandates and allows the official published version of the article, book or book chapter to be archived and distributed with no embargo, under a Creative Commons licence.

We have OA policy compliance advice for journal article and book authors supported by research funders or institutions on our Springer Nature OA funding and support pages.Visit our OA policy compliance FAQs (journals/books) or OA funding and policy checklist (journals/books) to learn more.

For authors publishing via the subscription route, more information about how you can self-archive your Springer accepted manuscript can be found on our Open Research policy pages for journals and books.
