175 years of progress - 175 years of discovery
We are a global and progressive business, founded on a heritage of trusted and respected brands – including Springer, founded in 1842, Macmillan, founded in 1843 and Nature, first published in 1869.
Nearly two centuries of progress and advancement in science and education have helped shape the business we are today. Research and learning continues to be the cornerstone of progress, and we will continue to open doors to discovery through trusted brands and innovative products and services. Springer Nature Group was created in May 2015 through the combination of Nature Publishing Group, Macmillan Education and Springer Science+Business Media.
The main shareholders of Springer Nature are Holtzbrinck Publishing Group and BC Partners. Holtzbrinck, a family-owned company based in Stuttgart, holds a majority share of 53 per cent.
Working together to solve the world’s biggest challenges
The Springer Nature Group works closely with a large global community of academic researchers and educators who, through their work, want to leave the world better than they found it, to solve problems and to disseminate their ideas. We work to reduce our environmental footprint, to promote an inclusive environment rich in diversity and to forge links with the communities we serve.
As one of the world’s largest publishers of research and education content, our sustainable business strategy considers both what we do to open doors to discovery, how we do it as a company of around 10,000 colleagues, and the impact that our work may have on the environment and society.
We are proud to play an active role in promoting and celebrating diversity, equity and inclusion across our company and through our publications and other activities.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
At Springer Nature, our mission is to open doors to discovery, enabling millions of researchers, educators, clinicians and other professionals to access, trust and make sense of the latest insights so together we can improve and enrich lives and help to protect our planet for future generations. We believe that diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to achieving this mission.
We commit to championing diversity, equity and inclusion in the communities we serve, using our networks and brands. We will work to eliminate barriers to creating, discovering and using knowledge, and supporting equitable outcomes in learning and advancing scholarship — from young learners to PhD-level and beyond.
