  • Abundance of information
  • Nothing significant
SpringerLink, according to the opening page on this site, is “one of the world’s leading interactive databases for high-quality STM journals, book series, books, reference works, and the Online Archives Collection.” The amount of info housed here is not trivial; there are (gulp) over 3 million documents that can be accessed. Full access requires free registration, but even without registering, one can view abstracts and summaries of articles. To be sure, not all of the content is for scientists (for example, architecture, business/economics, humanities), but there is a lot here for biologists/behavioral science (75,000+ articles), biomedical/life sciences (829,000+), chemistry/material sciences (589,000+), earth/environmental science (300,000+), and medicine (650,000+). A site definitely worth a look-see, SpringerLink is packed to the gills.
