Springer Nature

Springer Nature is one of the world’s leading global research, educational and professional publishers, home to an array of respected and trusted brands providing quality content through a range of innovative products and services.

Springer Nature is the world’s largest academic book publisher, publisher of the world’s most influential journals and a pioneer in the field of open research. Springer Nature was formed in 2015 through the merger of Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave Macmillan, Macmillan Education and Springer Science+Business Media.

Springer Nature is embracing linked data technologies as an integral part of its content publishing operations and has developed a data model which is highly responsive to new and legacy business requirements. Linked data is central to the customer experience in providing content discovery applications and in facilitating emergent behaviours in interacting with content.

Many of the models developed have recently been published on our Ontologies Portal at nature.com/ontologies and are shared in order to contribute to the wider linked data community and to provide a public reference. These models cover publication things – articles, figures, etc. – and classification things – article-types, subjects, etc. – plus additional things used to manage our content publishing operation – assets, events, etc.

We have also published a model for conference proceedings on our LOD Conference Portal at lod.springer.com
