Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) July 19, 2007 -- Reprints Desk (www.reprintsdesk.com) announced today that it has reached an agreement with Springer to deliver PDFs of individual journal articles from over 1,700 journals published by Springer. Springer is the world's second-largest publisher of journals in the STM sector and the largest publisher of STM books.
Kim Zwollo, Global Director, Special Licensing & Rights for Springer, said, "Working with smaller companies such as Reprints Desk helps us reach niche markets that we are not able to serve directly ourselves."
"We are delighted to be working with Springer. Without Springer content we would not be able to support our mission of providing our customers with access to the full breadth of high quality peer-reviewed literature in innovative and copyright-compliant ways," says Jan Peterson, Head of Publisher Relations for Reprints Desk.
Reprints Desk provides full-service article delivery that allows customers to order published articles via the means that works best for them. Reprints Desk's article delivery service is an enterprise alternative to individual credit card purchases of articles, and can be integrated with existing databases and online subscriptions. The Reprints Desk service provides access to both online journals and physical library collections. Articles are delivered in their original format and color, either as a PDF or a professionally printed hardcopy, with no extra charge for color. Reprints Desk provides fast turn-around and integrated data management and reporting capabilities.
