Springer Materials

Springer has been successfully publishing one of its flagship databases, SpringerMaterials, on a separate platform since 2009. This unique database in Materials Science has now been redesigned and will soon migrate to share the same look and feel and backend functionality as SpringerLink, their journals’ and books’ platform.  In addition, SpringerMaterials will have unique functionality for users to access data in an efficient and granular fashion.

These changes are based on user feedback, and are in recognition of the fact that research needs are changing from just having electronic access to textual, numerical and graphical data, to being able to search efficiently for desired content, and to manipulate and filter data.

Apart from an updated interface, the new version of SpringerMaterials will feature facetted search that allows researchers to view all properties that are associated with the chosen material or chemical system, and filter for these properties, their disciplines and data sources. In addition to well-regarded features like the chemical structure search and the periodic table search, the new platform will have additional interactivity like scalable data tables and clickable phase diagrams.

SpringerMaterials is the world’s largest resource for the physical and chemical properties in Materials Science. It contains the complete Landolt-Börnstein New Series, spanning over 440 volumes dating back to 1961 and covering over 250,000 materials and chemical systems. It also contains a number of other integrated databases on subjects like properties and phase diagrams of inorganic solid materials, thermo-physical properties of selected organic fluids, polymer thermodynamics and adsorption.
