Springer has relaunched its online platform SpringerLink, which hosts nearly five million documents, including ebooks, journals and reference works. The company says that 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.

In addition, when users perform a search, the technology analyses 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.
