II. Springer journals

We’ve added online access to 2,000+ Springer journals from 1997 to present! https://library.drake.edu/find/article-databases/goto/springer-journals

See below for links to journals in specific disciplines:

Medicine

Internal Medicine

Biomedical Sciences

Public Health

Health Informatics

Psychology

Social Sciences

Life Sciences

Ecology

Plant Sciences

Biochemistry & Biophysics

Mathematics

Statistics

Computer Science

Physics

By joining a new library consortium we were able to provide access to these journals for less than $3 per title per year.  With a few exceptions, we now have access to ALL Springer journals.

In 2015 over 500 Drake users attempted to access 16 Springer journal titles (such as Journal of Insect Behavior, as well as Advances in Therapy) and were denied access.  These journals are all now directly available to Cowles patrons, wherever they have an Internet connection!
