New Journal: Springer Launches Interdisciplinary Open Access Journal SpringerPlus

From Springer:

Springer’s new open access journal SpringerPlus is a further addition to the publishing company’s SpringerOpen portfolio, underlining its flexible publication strategy. It is the publisher’s first open access journal with a broad interdisciplinary approach covering the entire scientific spectrum. Papers from emerging areas of research are welcome.

SpringerPlus will feature interdisciplinary manuscripts describing original research, case studies and methods. The journal guarantees a high standard of scientific quality while extending the range of data formats, accepting audiovisual formats, data reports, and extensive tables either as complete articles or part of the paper. There will be no restrictions on the number of words or figures, and articles detailing statistically negative correlation will be considered.

Springer ensures distribution to the widest possible audience, maximizing visibility and citations. Like all other SpringerOpen journals, SpringerPlus will be published under the Creative Commons Attribution License. This means that authors retain copyright and all content is freely available in full to everyone immediately. Authors will be assessed a standard open access fee.
