Elsevier provides a publication recognition certificate through the link: A certificate for published work in Elsevier journals can be downloaded from this page.

Is there a similar service available for Springer journals?

    Interesting... I normally use the article as recognition, not sure quite what those certificates are used for...

  • @JonCuster Some universities require these certificates while making appointments or in process of promotion.

    That seems very strange as there are many venues that don't bother with such stuff. Why would they, other than as a bit of advertising and encouragement to publish again with them? I wonder if you've misinterpreted something. And a predatory or disreputable journal/conference could issue such things as well.

    @IgotiT - I've always used reprints (or a pdf of the article). News to me - perhaps a local or regional thing...

  • What about DOI, a copy of the conference proceedings (although nowadays are digital) or a copy of the journal volume? I think there are many means to claim authorship together with paper authenticity.
