Springer Content on Demand (CoD)

Formerly known as Springer Deposit.

Springer CoD offers institutions seamless access to a wide range of content on SpringerLink on a pay-per-view basis. To start a CoD account you buy a set of units (minimum 150 units). The units can then be used by your patrons to view the full text of articles, chapters, and books.

You can choose to inform your patrons that there is a cost associated with their PDF downloads.

Each month you will receive a usage report with details of which content was downloaded and paid for with Springer CoD units. You will also be notified when the remaining account balance falls below a predetermined threshold, usually 10% of the opening balance. You can get your unit balance at any time by contacting online service.
