SpringerMaterials has recently introduced new functionality.
SpringerMaterials is based on the Landolt-Börnstein News Series - a unique and fully evaluated data collection covering all areas of physical sciences and engineering. This new one-stop web platform is a resource of critically assessed data explained in their scientific context.
SpringerMaterials has recently introduced new functionalities:
OpenSearch compliant clients are now supported - SpringerMaterials now supports search requests by OpenSearch compliant clients. Search results can be returned as an OpenSearch compliant RSS feed. Further information on how to link the SpringerMaterials search engine to your federated search can be found in the help section of the platform.
Support for single and multiple character wildcard searches - SpringerMaterials now supports single and multiple character wildcard searches within search terms. Use the "?" symbol to perform a single character wildcard search and use the "*" sysmbol to perform a multiple character wildcard search. For example, the query sul*ite returns for both "sulphite" and "sulfite". Searching for ferr?magnetism shows hits for both "ferromagnetism" and "ferrimagnetism".
Citation export functionality has been implemented - export the Landolt-Börnstein citations easily into bibliographic software. Just go to the info document of an article to export its bibliographic information. You find the link "RIS-Export" in the section "How to cite this document." It provides bibliographic data of the document in the RIS format, which can be exported to Endnote and similar programs.
The Chest Agreement for SpringerMaterials offers savings of up to 47% off of the list price.
