Book authors, editors and chapter authors are entitled to order Springer books — print and electronic versions — at a 33.33% discount. The quantity of books ordered must be in the normal range for private use.

At the end of the book production process book authors will receive:

  1. An e-mail that includes their log in details for their personal MySpringer account. You will then be registered as an author and will receive your discount automatically when ordering online through MySpringer.
  2. Or an e-mail that includes the personal SpringerToken¹ (together with instructions how to use it).

If you did not receive one of these e-mails for any reason, you can alternatively request the author discount (SpringerToken) via the request form below. The time between submitting the request and receiving the token should generally not take longer than two working days.


If you have not yet received your SpringerToken, please send us your personal details via this form:


If you are a Co-Author, Editor-in-Chief or Editorial Board Member, or if your article has been published outside the MyPublication process, you can also benefit from the book discount by filling in the above form


¹) SpringerToken for authors: personal discount that can be used by one person only. It is valid for a lifetime. Just enter it with your first book order. For any further online book orders your author discount will apply automatically.
