Science savants now can access via their iPhones and iPads free scientific content—including article abstracts, more than 127,000 open-access research articles, and book and journal covers—via the new SpringerLink mobile app. Plus, users with institutional subscriptions to the science platform SpringerLink can access the full text of all its content products. The SpringerLink.com digital platform includes articles and chapters from more than 2,000 peer-reviewed journals, 48,000 e-books and about 200 reference works, and makes available 25,000 searchable online protocols in life sciences and biomedicine.
Users may instantly view materials while connected to a subscriber-based network. Upon login, users are redirected to the full-text PDF of the original content request, and can share and save documents directly from the app. The app features advanced search, personalized notifications and document details with abstracts.
"As more and more research is done away from the desk ... it is our responsibility to make sure our customers are equipped to conveniently access Springer's vast collection of content," said Patricia Cleary, eProduct Management at Springer, in a press release announcing the launch. BB
