Living and Static Reference Works 

What is the difference?

  • Some of Springer Nature’s reference works are published as living references which are online first, real-time snapshots (article collections) of a reference work which is in development or is being updated.
  • The living editions are delivered well in advance of the static, printed reference publications, and continuously offer new and up-to-date content.
  • Each online-first entry has its own DOI and is fully citable.
