Springer Launches SpringerExemplar.com

Apr 24, 2009

Springer Science+Business Media, a scientific publisher, has launched the website www.SpringerExemplar.com, a free linguistic tool designed to support the publishing process for authors, editors, and the scientific community in general. The online service Exemplar allows researchers to see how a particular term or phrase is used in peer-reviewed, published literature. Springer has partnered with the Centre for Biomedical and Health Linguistics to develop this conceptual online service. The user searches for a specific term, which retrieves a list of results of where and how the keyword is used in published Springer content. The left column displays lists of different categories: the year the article was published, the top subject areas in which the term is used, the highest concentration of articles by country, and the name of the journal where the keyword is used most. By clicking on the keyword itself, the user is linked directly to the journal article where the word is located.
