  3. 3. Landolt-Börnstein: Figures and Facts • Data collection equivalent to >180,000 pages in 55,000 online documents (extracted from 365 printed volumes) • >120,000 figures; >1 Mio literature references; 65,000 keywords • >150,000 chemical substances; >72,000 element systems; >530,000 substance-property pairs; nearly 1,5 Mio synonyms • Fully international in scope and coverage, the contents have been written and quality-checked by thousands of top scientists • A systematic & comprehensive evaluation of selected and critically assessed data in all areas of physical sciences & engineering Current Landolt-Börnstein: • 19 printed volumes published each year; complicated web access through Springer.com 3 T Mager, K Sora
  4. 4. What means “critically evaluated”? Best Temperature measurements result Editors & Authors •Pick best results •Describe optimal experimental set-up •Explain best practise •Give physico-chemical Paper 1, Paper 2, Paper 3, Paper 4, published by published by published by published by background information 4 T Mager, K Sora

  8. 8. LB Usability Study - Recommendations Relaunch as a stand-alone site! one particular portal a dedicated website rather than SpringerLink only a simpler URL the existing online platform is too oriented towards the print format Google-like search! table-of-content search, keyword search Search results: direct access to LB data Search functions prominently located sorting of hits by relevance 8 T Mager, K Sora
  9. 9. Lessons learned We„re working on… Customer demand • New, flexible business Affordability! model; highly attractive price • Findability! • New one-stop web Usability! platform • Interactivity! • Huge database with Completeness! constant updating • Quality! World-class content, authors and editors 9 T Mager, K Sora

  24. 24. Aircraft engineer needs new alloy for construction of stronger winglets: e.g., Sn-Cu-Ag Springer Materials Typical Usage Situation 1. Selects components by clicking on elements in periodic table 2. Available content shown 24 T Mager, K Sora
  25. 25. Aircraft engineer needs new alloy for construction of stronger winglets: e.g., Sn-Cu-Ag Springer Materials Typical Usage Situation 1. Opens phase diagram 2. Selects desired material from diagram 3. Collects desired materials properties 25 T Mager, K Sora
  26. 26. Chemical reactor burst due to high vapor pressure Springer Materials Typical Usage Situation 1. Read fundamentals 2. Select desired vapor pressure from table 26 T Mager, K Sora
  27. 27. Available Use SpringerMaterials Build Patented Raw Materials To Select Patent-relevant Device Materials With Desired Properties 27 T Mager, K Sora
  28. 28. Competition No Competition! Only Other Brands • Gmelin Database Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry; over 2.5 million compounds (coordination compounds, alloys, solid solutions, glasses and ceramics, polymers, minerals) more than 2 million reactions, and 1.1 million citations; journals from 1772 • Beilstein Handbook of Organic Chemistry Organic Chemistry information on 9.8 million substances, 10.3 million chemical reactions and 2 million original scientific publications; journals from1771 and patents from 1869-1980 planned Relaunch - new product ( Reaxys) comprising Beilstein, Gmelin & other Elsevier databases • Science of Synthesis New edition of Houben-Weyl; systematic and critically evaluated review of Synthetic Methods in Organic and Organometallic Chemistry • INSPEC 9.5 bibliographic records from scientific and technical journals and conference proceedings in Physics, Electrical Engineering and Electronics, Computing and Control, and Information Technology; a collection of published material without any critical evaluation; records contain bibliographic information, indexing terms, abstracts, property information, and element terms 28 T Mager, K Sora
  29. 29. Competition in a Nutshell No Competition! Only Other Brands • All very “éminence gris” of prestigious standing … but: • Either not critically evaluated like INSPEC • Or covering different subject areas like Science of Synthesis • Or different focus – even if some overlap: Gmelin, Beilstein, Science of Synthesis are more chemistry oriented, whereas Springer Materials covers the physical side of matter For a complete picture: Federated search possibility since complemetary brands ! 29 T Mager, K Sora
