Here are four things to know about SpringerLink:
1. Search and Browse Journals
Find important information about a journal, including a brief description, publication dates, and the number of volumes and articles published. Type your keywords into the “Search within this journal” box to search articles within that journal, and then refine your search by discipline.
2. “Look Inside” for Access
Choose “Browse Volumes and Issues” and click on an article title to read the abstract, download the PDF, or export the citation. Click the “Look Inside” image for full access to the article for UT students and faculty, or a free two-page preview for everyone else. See closely related articles and supplementary material for each article.
3. Keep Updated with Article Alerts
View the latest articles that have been published in a journal. Register for Journal Updates or subscribe to an RSS feed to get email notifications of new research. The Online First feature lets you access peer-reviewed articles well before print publication.
4. Authors: Considering publishing an article with Springer?
Click “About this Journal” to learn about the aims and scope of the journal, instructions for manuscript submission, copyright information, and the journal’s impact factor from Journal Citation Reports. See Article Metrics like citations and social shares for individual articles.
Several articles have been published in SpringerLink by University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture (UITA) authors, including Raul A. Almeida in Animal Science, Debra L. Miller in the College of Veterinary Medicine, and Mathew J. Gray in Forestry, Wildlife and Fisheries. See Springer’s Authors’ Rights Policy on archiving in the UT Digital Archive TRACE and other authors’ rights Springer allows.
Considering publishing an e-book, or have you been approached by another publisher for an e-book?
Compare what they offer with Springer. Springer has a No Digital Rights Management (DRM) policy that is author and reader friendly, and results in a better user experience and increased e-book downloads.
