We have now loaded over 3,200 e-books across most subject areas into DiscoverEd.
We will add the remainder of 2018 copyright year e-books available to us on the Springer website as the records become available.
With the 2018 renewal of our Nature journals collection, we gain access to 3 new titles.
Nature Catalysis – this new journal will bring together research from across all chemistry and related fields, incorporating both fundamental and applied studies. With Nature Research Group’s focus on the grand societal challenges, this journal will have a particular interest in applied work that advances our knowledge and informs the development of sustainable industries and processes.
Nature Electronics – publishing both fundamental and applied research across all areas of electronics, from the study of novel phenomena and devices, to the design, construction and wider application of electronic circuits. The core focus of this journal will be the development of new technologies and understanding the impact of these developments on society.
Nature Sustainability – this new journal will publish research contributing to a deep understanding of the ways in which we organise our lives in a finite world and the multiple impacts our actions have. Beyond fundamental research, the journal aims to publish studies of policies and solutions to ensure human well-being now and in the future, facilitating important cross-disciplinary dialogues to respond to the greatest challenges of our time.
