The Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, the Klaus Tschira Foundation and the University of Heidelberg have initiated the Springer Nature Visiting Professorship. The visiting professorship serves to impart the importance and the value of science communication. The visiting professors should convey high-quality reporting on science. Excellent science communication and quality journalism should be sustainably promoted. First Springer Nature Visiting Professor was Sir Philip Campbell, editor-in-chief of Springer Nature and editor emeritus of the renowned magazine nature.
