Our official platform, SpringerLink, received 127 million unique visitors making 285 million visits in 2016. This high volume of traffic increases the reach and readership of our open access books, and the easy-to-use platform makes it is easier to access and share peer-reviewed research.
Our open access books are also available through third party hosting platforms such as:
• Amazon Kindle
• Google Scholar
• Apple Books
• PubMed’s NCBI Bookshelf
• the OAPEN Library
• funders’ own platforms
• plus 200+ other abstracting and indexing services.
We work together with these partners to ensure that our open access books are easily discoverable for wider dissemination of the high quality research that our authors publish. As our OA books are hosted by partners, it makes tracking usage difficult – however giving our authors the most impact for their research is worth this challenge.
