Current SpringerLink accounts will not carry over to new platform

Unfortunately, if you have created an individual My SpringerLink account, your existing account and anything you have saved there will disappear and you will need to create a new account on the new platform. You can do so now at

Another option is to set up your journal alerts, along with search alerts and citation alerts, in Web of Science. Using Web of Science alerts will allow you to centralize management of journal publication alerts from a wide variety of publishers.

For questions about the Springer platform change or to receive assistance setting up Web of Science alerts, please contact Amy Shannon.
