New platform for Springer journals and ebooks on Nov. 26

Springer journal and ebook content will be migrating to a new Springer platform effective Monday, November 26. You will automatically be redirected to the new SpringerLink site at that time. The new SpringerLink site is faster, easier to use, and optimized for most mobile devices.

Please note: Individual personalized accounts created on the old SpringerLink platform will not be migrated to the new platform. Users wanting to save searches and alerts will need to create a new account when the new platform is made available. The old platform will remain accessible through the end of 2012, in case you need to retrieve settings from your old account.

DataUp: describe, manage and share your data

Recently the California Digital Library (CDL) and its partners released DataUp, a free tool to help researchers (especially in the earth, ecological, and environmental sciences) to manage and archive their tabular data. It was developed to integrate with Microsoft Excel, though researchers can use the Web application and/or Microsoft Excel add-in. Both versions allow users to:

  • Perform a "best practices check" to ensure data are well-formatted and organized
  • Create standardized metadata, or a description of the data, using a wizard-style template
  • Retrieve a unique identifier for their dataset from the data repository
  • Post their datasets and associated metadata to the ONEShare repository.

More information about DataUp can be found in the press release and the DataPub blog. DataUp joins other data management tools developed by CDL and its partners including:

  • DMP Tool: to help prepare and save data management plans for your grant applications
  • EZID: to create and manage unique, persistent, and citable identifiers for your data
  • Merritt: to manage, preserve, and/or share your data

Please see our Scientific Data Services for more information on these tools and other data management services.

PMC Free Digital Archive

PMC logo

PMC, formerly PubMed Central, is a free digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature, currently containing approximately 2.5 million articles.

PMC is a repository for journal literature deposited by participating publishers, as well as for author manuscripts that have been submitted in compliance with the Public Access Policy mandated by NIH and other research funding agencies. The repository includes material dating back prior to the NIH mandate, including some which date to the mid to late 1800s or early 1900s. A sampling of journals going back to volume 1 includes American Journal of Human Genetics (v. 1, 1949-),  Biophysical Journal (v. 1, 1960-), and Transactions of the American Ophthalmological Society (v.1, 1865-).

Almost all the content of PMC is protected by U.S. and/or foreign copyright laws, although access is free for all materials. Respective copyright holders retain rights for reproduction, redistribution and reuse.
