Discounts for authors

Book authors and journal contributors are entitled to order Springer eBooks and print books at a special discount for personal use (not for resale). In order to take advantage of your author discount, please log in to your MySpringer account. You can see the discounted book rate in your shopping cart. If your discount is not granted automatically, you will need a SpringerToken for authors.

What is a SpringerToken?

A SpringerToken is a promotional code, which enables selected groups (e.g. authors, society members) to benefit from exclusive book offers, or access to protected areas (e.g. Free trial access to journal content). 

How do I get a SpringerToken as an author?

If you have not yet received your SpringerToken, please send us your personal details via this form

If you are a Co-Author, Editor-in-Chief or Editorial Board Member, or if your article has been published outside the MyPublication process, you can also benefit from the book discount by filling in this form.

How do I use my SpringerToken?

Thanks to this registration process, purchasing books with your author’s discount has been greatly simplified. Place a product into your cart and visit the checkout. On the checkout page, you will find the field "Coupons/Token". Please type in your SpringerToken here. Your discount will be credited immediately, and you will always be identified as an author with discount privileges. ​

Later on you will receive your discount automatically when logging in to your Springer account. When you add a product to the cart, you will see the reduced price as well as your savings.

Author discount and additional discounts

In many cases the author discount can be combined with other discounts, so that everyone can benefit from our special offers. However, 50% discount campaigns are excluded. For details, please review the conditions of each coupon you receive carefully.
