Springer signs book agreement with the American Physiological Society

Three book series and individual titles added to Springer’s physiology publishing program

Springer has signed a book partnership agreement with the American Physiological Society (APS) to publish titles in three APS book series as well as individual monographs and contributed volumes. The new publications are aimed primarily at researchers and will support Springer’s growing physiology publishing program.

The American Physiological Society will commission book projects, and Springer will provide editorial guidance, as well as production, marketing, sales, and distribution services. In addition to individual books, Springer will publish titles in three APS book series: Methods in Physiology, Clinical Physiology, and Progress and Perspectives in Physiology. All titles will be published in print and electronically as part of Springer’s Physiology eBook Collection.  Additionally, Springer will digitize 32 of APS’s previously published titles to be included in Springer’s Online Book Archives. Under the agreement, the Society will be granted free access in perpetuity to the digital files of any works published.

William Curtis, Executive Vice President Clinical Medicine, Biomedicine, and Life Sciences at Springer, said, “Springer is delighted to partner with the American Physiological Society and work with its authors and members to bring top physiology research to the global community. The APS has an active book program and a long history of collaborating with the country’s best physiologists. We look forward to working together with them.”

Martin Frank, Executive Director of the American Physiological Society, said, “APS is excited to be partnering with Springer to bring the best of physiology to the community.  In selecting Springer, APS did so because of its long history and its commitment to digitizing the Society’s past titles as well as Springer’s willingness to include APS books in their eBook Collection.”

The American Physiological Society (www.the-aps.org) is a nonprofit organization devoted to fostering education, scientific research, and dissemination of information in the physiological sciences. The Society was founded in 1887 and currently has over 10,500 members.
