A Closer Look at Springer Nature's Major Reference Works Portfolio

By: undefined, Thu Oct 5 2017

Springer Nature’s Major Reference Works (MRW) portfolio contains over 600 peer reviewed, high profile trade and academic references from Palgrave Macmillan and Springer References.

This portfolio of references span science, technology, medicine, humanities, social sciences, business, economics and more, and play an instrumental part as the foundational starting point for students, researchers, and professionals needing authoritative, expertly validated summaries of a field, topic or concept.

The MRW collection includes impressive offerings such as The Statesman’s Yearbook, The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics, The Palgrave Encyclopaedia of Strategic Management, and The Encyclopedia of Scientific Dating Methods – which was recently decorated with the Mary B. Ansari Best Geoscience Research Resource Work Award.

The MRW portfolio is updated with over 15,000 new reference work entries and 6,000 updates per year. Over 500,000 articles are already published and available in multiple publication formats (PDF, HTML, ePUb) readable on all electronic devices.

Springer Nature’s MRWs are published online both as eReferences and so-called ‘Living References’ which are online first, real-time snapshots (article collections) of a reference work in development or being updated. In order to facilitate discoverability and usage, our MRWs are fully indexed, available on the SpringerLink online platform with links to other Springer Nature journals, eBooks, and other content, and linked to external indexing sites.
