             Under pressure from the Chinese government, Springer Nature will in the future censor parts of its online offering. Otherwise, there would be the risk "that all our content would be blocked", says the publisher.
            

        

        The German science publisher Springer Nature has censored parts of its Internet site in China under pressure from the government in Beijing. As the publisher announced on Wednesday, "less than one percent of the content" had been locked so as not to conflict with local laws. At first, a spokeswoman for the publisher did not want to comment on which topics the now blocked content dealt with.
Other media had reported that the ban was mainly related to articles on issues that are considered sensitive in China, such as Taiwan, the Tiananmen Square massacre or Tibet. The texts could only be found with the help of VPN connections, with which the Internet barriers of the country can be avoided. "This measure is deeply regrettable, but it was taken to prevent far greater impact on our clients and authors," the statement said. "If we did not act, there would be a very real risk that all our content would be blocked."
Already in August, the British publisher Cambridge University Press (CUP) briefly blocked articles in China. However, after fierce criticism from scientists around the world, CUP withdrew its decision. In order to prevent the dissemination of unwelcome information, China has intensified its internet censorship in recent years. Social media such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube or Google services, as well as newspapers such as the New York Times and China-critical websites are blocked. The short message service WhatsApp was also repeatedly blocked last.
