Cureus December 2022 Newsletter
Hi, In case you missed last week's big announcement, we are delighted to share with you that Cureus is now part of Springer Nature! Springer Nature is a German-British academic publishing company considered to be a leader in global research, educational, and professional publishing. As of December 2021, they had published 16% of all Open Access primary research, which is 29% more than any other publisher. The Cureus mission and editorial policies will remain the same. We will continue eliminating barriers to the generation and dissemination of medical knowledge, only now as part of Springer Nature. Their backing and trust will enable Cureus and our community of readers, authors and peer reviewers to grow even more quickly. We are thrilled to join with Springer Nature in paving the way towards an open science future.

Cureus November 2022 Newsletter
Hi, Looking for our popular Social Boost feature? We've changed the name to Article Promotion as we found that some authors were a bit confused by the old name. Get all the details on our Article Promotion feature and if your published article qualifies right here. A reminder for peer reviewers - please do not bother highlighting language and formatting errors during your peer review. Copy editing is the very last step of the Cureus publication process, so you can count on our editing team to fix these errors. Authors want your valuable insight into the scientific content of their article, whether it be a simple case report or a multi-year prospective study!

Cureus July 2022 Newsletter
Hi, We've made some major changes to the Cureus peer review process that you should know about. All articles in peer review now require two completed reviews from peer reviewers invited by Cureus. The only exception: articles featuring a Cureus Laureate author will only require that one of the two completed reviews be from a Cureus-invited reviewer. We've also eliminated the 21 day exemption for articles that have not received a Cureus-invited review. All articles (except those with a Cureus Laureate author) now require two Cureus-invited reviews. Why did we make these changes? To further bolster the quality and thoroughness of Cureus peer review. Detailed analysis of review times indicate that these changes to our review policy will not have a major effect on article publication times.
