SNAPP – A New Manuscript Submission system

Snapp (Springer Nature’s Article Processing Platform) is our new peer review platform, replacing the previous system, Editorial Manager.

After clicking on the 'Submit Manuscript' button, you will be directed to a page asking you to log in, or register a new Springer Nature account if you don't already have one.


This is a different account to the one previously used in Editorial Manager, so if you are submitting to the journal via Snapp for the first time, you should register a new account.

You can then update your details at any point, and track the progress of your submissions by visiting your Profile page.
