Springer Nature serves as valuable publishing outlet for 2017 Nobel Prize winners

London | Heidelberg | New York, 9 October 2017

All 2017 science Nobel laureates have publications with Springer Nature imprints: BMC, Nature Research, Springer or Palgrave Macmillan

Publications which have been authored and edited by the 2017 Nobel Prize winners span nearly five decades of publishing history at Springer Nature. The breadth and diversity of the publications demonstrate that Springer Nature continues to provide top-ranking researchers with a variety of outlets where they can publish their research. 

The oldest publication is a book chapter on gravitational radiation damping by physics Nobel laureate Kip S. Thorne which was published in 1970. The most recent publication is an article from July 2017 in Nature by a group of authors which includes chemistry Nobel laureate Joachim Frank. All science Nobel laureates announced in 2017 have published with Springer Nature in the form of research articles, book chapters and books – open access and subscription models. 

“The Nobel Prize is awarded to exceptional people demonstrating high achievement in their field of work and we are honoured that so many recipients have entrusted us with their publications during their careers. From helping authors to unlock ideas and find the right journal for their research, to providing early editorial guidance and rigorous peer review, we stand with our authors through every step of the publishing process and beyond. We are privileged to work with Nobel laureates – those of today and, we hope, those of tomorrow – who choose our journals and imprints to share their research. Congratulations to all of this year’s laureates.” said Steven Inchcoombe, Chief Publishing Officer at Springer Nature.
