Going beyond the search bar: database publishing and how database usage can be measured
At Springer Nature we believe our mission is to support researchers in advancing discovery, and we strive to do this by publishing around 300,000 journal articles and over 13,000 academic books every year and embarking on initiatives, projects and innovations to ensure the discoverability and ease of access of this research. We are always looking for new ways to serve our community and ensure that we are both supporting, enhancing and delivering what our communities need.
