Berlin-based Springer Science+Business Media has signed an agreement with Amazon’s print-on-demand arm CreateSpace through which Springer’s English-language paperback book catalogue will be made available via POD in the U.S. Springer said that in addition to moving a significant amount of its paperback selection to POD, it will also supply many new paperback titles only in POD format. ‘If a hardcover is suitable for print-on-demand, that is the format we’ll use,” said the company’s Mark Conmy. The goal, he added, is to make all of Springer’s titles available as quickly as possible.’

Syed Hasan, Springer’s president STM Sales Americas, said the POD initiative complements the publisher’s e-book program which features editions of most print titles. “This shift to an inventory-free distribution model using print-on-demand is the next logical step for the future of book publishing.
