Springer Nature Open Access Community Zone Electronic Collection
This is a request to add a single free/open access collection for all Springer Nature free/open access journals. Currently there are 4 community zone collections in Alma with many overlaps:
SpringerOpen Free - (CKB)613170000000000044
BioMed Central open Access - (CKB)611000000000000500
Bacon Springer Nature Global Open Access - (CKB)613780000000000900
Springer Nature Oa Journals - (CKB)614910000000000075
We’d like the addition of one single consolidated collection because having the above 4 collections is unnecessarily confusing for students and staff as they currently encounter so many electronic collections for the same journal/article even when different community zone electronic collection links in Primo end up on the same platform page.
A single collection would be much simpler, and we could then deactivate the 4 collections cited here – would be great if they were removed completely from the community zone. This is also more in-line with other publishers such as the singular ‘Wiley Online Library Open Access’ and ‘Taylor & Francis Open Access’ community zone electronic collections.
