Springer Business Media Staff | Information Today | July 16, 2013

Springer Science+Business Media announced that the influence of its open access (OA) journals has increased over the past year.

...Springer now has 163 OA journals with an impact factor, which is 41% of its entire OA output.

“Not only did our overall numbers grow, but nearly one half of those with new impact factors were open access. This reaffirms the importance of peer-reviewed publications supported by different models,” says Peter Hendriks, president of scientific, technical, and medical publishing at Springer.
