05.11.2023 - Springer Nature expands its AI capability with acquisition of Slimmer AI’s Science division
With technology having played an important role in improving the way trusted science is published for decades, global academic publisher Springer Nature has signed a definitive agreement which will see the Netherlands’ Slimmer AI’s Science division (S-AI) join the company.
Springer Nature and Slimmer AI have been working together since 2015. Using Slimmer AI’s advanced software that leverages emerging technology, the partnership has created AI tools to speed up and improve the publishing process by:
- Identifying appropriate editors to guide a manuscript through the submission process,
- Increasing reviewer acceptance rates by recommending the best people to peer review a manuscript, and
- Safeguarding the integrity of the scientific record by automating the identification of potential problems with papers, such as plagiarism.
