Springer Nature is an academic publishing company created by the May 2015 merger of Springer Science+Business Media and Holtzbrinck Publishing Group's Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave Macmillan, and Macmillan Education.[1] The company reported revenues of EUR1.64 billion in 2017.[1]

History

Springer Nature was formed in 2015 by the merger of Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave Macmillan and Macmillan Education (held by Holtzbrinck Publishing Group) with Springer Science+Business Media (held by BC Partners). Plans for the merger were first announced on 15 January 2015.[2] The transaction was concluded in May 2015 with Holtzbrinck having the majority 53% share.[3]

The company originates from a number of journals and publishing houses, notably Springer-Verlag, which was founded in 1842 by Julius Springer in Berlin[4] (the grandfather of Bernhard Springer who founded Springer Publishing in 1950 in New York),[5]Nature Publishing Group,[6] and Macmillan Education, which goes back to Macmillan Publishers founded in 1869.

After the merger, former Springer Science+Business Media CEO Derk Haank became CEO of Springer Nature. When he retired by the end of 2017, he was succeeded by Daniel Ropers, the co-founder and long-time CEO of bol.com.[7] In September 2019 Daniel Ropers was replaced by Frank Vrancken Peeters.[8]

In 2017, the company agreed to block access to hundreds of articles on its Chinese site, cutting off access to articles on Tibet, Taiwan and China's political elite.[9]

In 2018, Springer Nature reported a mean gender pay gap of 17.6 % in its UK workforce, while the median was 15.2 %.[10]
