BMC Series Editorial Site

A private community of editorial board members, which provides all the information they need to be an effective board member and to benefit from the connection the role brings to the BMC team and fellow editors.

For Springer Nature, it enables efficient group communication, adds prestige to the role of board member to aid recruitment, and helps get more value from the editorial board.

A community map of cancer immunity - sponsored thought leadership

Supported by leading pharmaceutical company F. Hoffman-La Roche, the site is based around a research paper published in Nature. The pharma sponsor wanted to bring the paper to a wider audience, in particular by inviting researchers’ participation with an interactive figure.

Springer Nature were able to provide a creative content marketing solution to the client, fast, with the site set up in just a few weeks.

Zapnito has given us a platform for community discussion around our journals, with little development time needed from us, helping to raise our visibility and strengthen our relationship with the research community. I would highly recommend them.
