SpringerLink at the leading edge of mobile design
The new SpringerLink is a ‘mobile first’ site that uses ‘responsive design’ technology so content is optimized for viewing on any device--laptop, tablet, mobile phone.
The advantage of Springer’s ‘mobile first’ approach is that no dedicated app for each operating system is needed. You simply open your browser, go to SpringerLink and it will always be the best experience possible regardless of device, screen size, or operating system. This strategy also allows us to maintain a consistent user experience across viewing devices.
To see how responsive design works just open any page on SpringerLink in your browser (on your desktop or laptop computer), then click the side of the browser screen and drag the screen to to minimize it. As you do so, you will reach two break points, where the design will change automatically because SpringerLink has detected that you have changed your screen size. Or you could just open the site on your smartphone or other mobile device.
We still have many ways in which we can improve and optimize the way that our pages display on mobile devices, but we’re proud to be leaders in the STM space in delivering a tailored experience to mobile users.
Mobile optimized website
