SpringerLink Relaunched With Semantic Linking and Content Previews

Springer has relaunched its online platform SpringerLink, which hosts nearly 5 million documents, including ebooks, journals, and reference works. The redesigned site has a new and fresh concept that includes semantic linking and connects related content across ebooks and journals.

SpringerLink now also contains a PDF Preview feature that provides all readers with a free look inside ebook chapters to be certain that the content matches their information needs. Subscribers not only have access to an instant overview of the entire ebook, they can also scroll and browse within different chapters of the book and can immediately download the desired content.

The redesigned site includes newly-integrated software that presents links to related content within journal articles and ebook chapters. When users perform a search, the technology analyzes each search result and compares its digital fingerprint to all other documents. This determines which documents are most similar to that article or chapter, ensuring that readers discover content that best meets their research needs.

Additional updates to the new SpringerLink include access to nearly 5 million contributions organized in a revised subject hierarchy. Enhanced browsing features and improved search functionality with the ability to search by citation makes the new SpringerLink even more useful for researchers. Online journals, ebooks, and ereference works have also been integrated onto a single, consistent user experience. Together with an enhanced user-friendly guided navigation, students and scientists can easily retrieve results for their work.
