Springer and the French National Institute for Agricultural Research INRA team up

INRA
Springer has been publishing five scientific journals for the French National Institute for Agricultural Research INRA since the beginning of the year. The journals are Apidologie, Annals of Forest Sciences, Dairy Science and Technology, Agronomy for Sustainable Development and Veterinary Research (all in English).
Over the years, the five journals published by the prestigious institute have gained an excellent reputation in the scientific community. This is particularly clear from the fact that the number and the impact of the articles submitted by researchers from all over the world has considerably increased since the journals switched to English. The partnership with Springer will help ensure that the journals enjoy an even greater reach in the international scientific community.
Like INRA’s journal Genetics Selection Evolution, which has been successfully published by BioMed Central since 2008, the journal Veterinary Research will also be published by BioMed Central as an open access journal. The expertise of the open access publisher BioMed Central and Springer should help Veterinary Research retain its first place among the veterinary journals listed by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI).
‘It is crucial for our researchers that our journals are stocked by all the world’s libraries,’ said Gérard Jacquin, Director of Valorisation at INRA. ‘This new partnership takes us down a whole new route and makes us optimistic about the future. Springer is an internationally leading publisher that has the competence and the technical infrastructure to guarantee the necessary continuity and development for our publications.’
‘INRA has high expectations from our partnership, and we are happy to accept this challenge,’ said Guido Zosimo-Landolfo, CEO of Springer-Verlag in France. ‘Springer’s strong portfolio in agronomy and veterinary sciences will no doubt provide the best conditions for synergies with existing journals.’
‘These journals are a valuable addition to our catalogue. We are proud that INRA chose Springer to develop the journals in future. This is important in view of the technological changes in the publishing industry that Springer has been addressing for years,’ said Maryse Walsh, Publishing Editor Biomedicine/ Life Sciences at Springer.
The French research institute Institut national de la recherche agronomique (INRA) is ranked second in the world and first in Europe for publications in the agricultural sciences and plant and animal sciences. It maintains scientific partnerships with major scientific research institutes worldwide, universities, and agronomy and veterinary schools, and is committed to helping build the European Research Area. The institute has drawn up a scientific frame of reference for the next ten years with the aim of ensuring sustainable food security in the world up to 2050.
Springer is a leading global scientific publisher of books and journals, delivering quality content through innovative information products and services. It publishes close to 500 academic and professional society journals. Springer is part of the publishing group Springer Science+Business Media. In the science, technology and medicine (STM) sector, the group publishes around 2,000 journals and more than 6,500 new books a year, as well as the largest STM eBook Collection worldwide. Springer has operations in about 20 countries in Europe, the Americas, and Asia, and more than 5,000 employees.
BioMed Central, acquired in 2008 by Springer, was one of the first open access publishers. Its many years of expertise and its technology make it one of the leading publishers in the field today. All papers published by BioMed Central are freely available online immediately.

    Apidologie is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the biology of insects belonging to the superfamily Apoidea (Michener, 1944), the term "biology" being used in the broader sense.

    The main topics include: behavior, ecology, pollination, genetics, physiology, toxicology and pathology. Systematic research can also be submitted to the extent that it concerns the Apoidea. Also accepted are research papers on the rearing, exploitation and practical use of Apoidea and their products, as far as they make a clear contribution to the understanding of bee biology. Papers which are only of descriptive kind and of local interest are not accepted.
