Springer to partner with the Università degli Studi di Palermo

Springer has entered into a partnership with Università degli Studi di Palermo to publish a new English-language book series. The UNIPA Springer Series is a unique cooperation that will showcase research from five core disciplines: medicine, biomedicine and life sciences; engineering and physics; mathematics, statistics and computer sciences; business, economics and law; and human, behavioral and social sciences. The topics addressed may come from one specific research field or have a multidisciplinary approach.

UNIPA Springer Series will offer peer-reviewed scientific research in a broad range of publications including monographs, edited volumes, handbooks, advanced textbooks, conference proceedings, professional books and SpringerBriefs. All publications in the series will be available as eBooks on the online platform SpringerLink (link.springer.com) and in print format. The series is managed by an editorial board made up of researchers from the University of Palermo and international key opinion leaders appointed by Springer. Academics from the University of Palermo as well as other universities around the world can publish their work in the series.

Prof. Roberto Lagalla, Rector of the University of Palermo, said: “Partnering with Springer, an expert innovator in publishing, gives our institution a chance to improve the quality of our research. We will have the invaluable opportunity to be more visible at an international level, even in those countries that may have eluded us so far. Furthermore, we will be able to reach more readers through one of the most visited distribution networks on the web. This exposure will also give our researchers the chance to receive more input from the international community, thus stimulating further discussion.”

Francesca Bonadei, Executive Editor, Mathematics and Statistics at Springer, said, “With this partnership, initiated by Springer’s Nicholas Philipson, Editorial Director, Business, Economics and Statistics, we aim to support the university in selecting and promoting the valuable research conducted there by an extended community of scholars, educators and students.”

Antonella Cerri, Executive Editor, Clinical Medicine at Springer, said, “Springer is proud to introduce to the international scientific community this peer-reviewed book series, which will publish across a spectrum of editorial models in research fields developed at the university. This cooperation represents a unique partnership in the Springer portfolio.”
