Is there a word limit for Springer Nature journal articles?

We do not have restraints on the size of manuscripts submitted to most of our Springer Nature journals unless otherwise required and specified in the Submission Guidelines or Instructions for Authors.

Manuscripts can include an unlimited number of figures, tables and additional files but the abstract of the manuscript should not exceed 350 words.
However, please remember that for the benefit of peer reviewers and readers articles should be as concise as possible.

For more information, please see the Submission Guidelines or Instructions for Authors by selecting your journal of choice from the lists below:
Palgrave Macmillan
Nature Research

For any additional questions, please contact the relevant submission contact of the journal directly. This is how you will Find publishing contacts for Springer Nature journals.
