The French Ministry of Higher Education and Research has signed a national licence for the acquisition of Springer scientific, medical and technical (STM) information on the SpringerLink platform. The French agency ABES (Agence bibliographique de l’enseignement supérieur), a bibliographic agency for higher education in France, coordinated this agreement with Springer, assisted by the Couperin Consortium, the French national research council CNRS and other major French STM stakeholders.

The agreement covers archived articles from over 1,000 electronic journals from the first published volume up to and including 1996 (35,000 volumes or 22.3 million pages) and more than 8,500 eBooks, which are part of books series published before 2004 (an additional 2.94 million pages).
