Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data
Springer Nature is a leading global research, educational and professional publisher. We advance discovery by publishing robust and insightful research, supporting the development of new areas of knowledge, responding to the needs of the research community, making ideas and information accessible globally, and are the largest open access research publisher.
We collaborate with a large global community of academic researchers and educators who, through their work, want to leave the world better than they found it by solving problems and disseminating their ideas.
Springer Nature’s SDG Programme seeks to generate collaboration on solutions to the world’s most pressing problems, by linking the high quality research and independent analysis published by Springer Nature to those policy and business leaders tasked with addressing them. We believe that research data should be easy to find and access, so that it can be used in other research programmes around the world and have been proactively developing services to help the research community share its data in reusable and accessible ways.
We publish nearly 3,000 journals and more than 13,000 books each year including many with relevance to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We publish nearly 3,000 journals and more than 13,000 books each year including many with relevance to the SDGs. Just two examples of relevance to this community, include:
- The Nature Research Sustainability Community provides a forum for the sharing and discussion of ideas and opinions about sustainability. Through posts, discussion, image, and video, this space can be used by members to communicate with each other, and with editors, about various topics ranging from the science itself through to policy, society, and day-to-day life.
- Scientific Data is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal for descriptions of scientifically valuable datasets and research that advances the sharing and reuse of scientific data. It welcomes submissions from a broad range of research disciplines, including descriptions of big or small datasets, from major consortiums to single research groups.

Sustainable development will falter without data. Through partnerships and collaborations with the research, policy, and business communities we want to take play our part in filling the data gaps around SDGs.
