MetadataShow full item record
Springer is one of the leading international scientific publishing companies and now ranks second in the world in the science, technology and medicine (STM) sector. Its publications cover a wide range of subjects including biomedicine and the life sciences, clinical medicine, physics, engineering, mathematics, computer sciences, and economics. The program is rounded off by publications on law and management. In addition, titles for people working in the health sector appear in German under the brand name “Springer Medizin”. Since the merger with the Dutch scientific publishing house Kluwer Academic Publishers (KAP), which began in February 2004, the range of products has increased further and now includes publications on arts subjects too. In future, 1,250 journals and more than 3,000 new books will be published by Springer worldwide each year, 80 percent of which will be in English. Like its authors and its publishing program, Springer is truly international – with offices in Heidelberg, Dordrecht, Vienna, London, Milan, New York, Tokyo, and New Delhi. Its authors include an impressive number of Nobel prize winners. Springer is part of the specialist publishing group Springer Science+Business Media, which owns 70 publishing companies in 18 countries throughout the world and employs some 5,400 people.
