Springer journal archives now available

The Library now provides access to two Springer journal archives:

  • Biomedical and Life Sciences (189 titles)
  • Medicine (159 titles)

Access is usually from Volume 1 of a title, and unless the title ceases before then, access stops in 1996.  Coverage in Biomedical and Life Sciences goes back to 1851, and in the Medicine archive to 1832.  Titles are available on the SpringerLink platform (which is mobile optimized), with content being fully searchable.

Full details of titles and their holdings can be found by searching in Discover.

Why journal archives?  Not only do journal archives help link discoveries of the past to today’s research, but the annual Library journal consultation consistently shows a demand for access to older volumes of journals.  These archive acquisitions are a response to this demand, and help the Library increase the breadth and depth of the School’s eJournal provision.

If you have any queries about these Springer archive collections, or journals in general, contact collections@lshtm.ac.uk
