Institutional Subscriptions

Online institutional subscriptions are purchased through a site license. The cost is dependent on the size and type of your institution and a signed site license agreement is required. We therefore recommend that you talk to one of Springer Nature's sales representatives about your online needs.

Full pricing and more information is available at the Librarian Gateway.

Springer Nature's Librarian Gateway is designed to guide you through the purchase process, inform you of the benefits of a subscription and answer any questions that you may have. The site now includes site license pricing for academic institutions as well as all print prices. You will also find full contact details for your local Springer Nature sales representative.
