Key Benefits:

  • Regularly updated content and each year approximately adds: 10,000 new eBooks, 3,000 new protocols and over 270,000 journal articles
  • Speed to facilitate research: SpringerLink is fast, delivering results up to 3 times quicker than our previous platform.
  • Look inside: Gives access to the first two pages of a document the library doesn’t own, enabling users to gauge the value and relevance of the work before a purchase decision is made. Look Inside applies to eBooks and other content types.
  • Mobile optimized: Responsive design of headers and menus allows for optimal browsing on a desktop, tablet or phone without losing any essential functionality or pushing critical content further down the page.
  • Online First: Lets users access peer-reviewed articles before they are published in print. The article text is fully searchable and citable by Digital Object Identifiers, but available much more quickly, accelerating the circulation of critical discoveries.
  • ​​​​​​​Open Choice: Gives authors the option to make their articles open access, even when publishing in one of Springer’s highly respected subscription-based journals. Articles are published under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license and copyright remains with the author.
