Springerís online content available on Koreaís top search engine Naver


Springer Science+Business Mediaís electronic journal and book content from its online platform SpringerLink is now searchable on Naver, the premier Korean search engine and subsidy of NHN Corporation.

Since the agreement between Springer and NHN was signed in July 2009, NHN has added Springerís metadata and has made its contents searchable on Naver. The searchability of the content follows Springerís recent expansion of its academic collaboration with Korean societies. In South Korea, Springer is the most active international science, technology and medicine (STM) publisher, co-publishing 30 Korean society journals.

Springer now has seven editorial and sales offices in Asia, including Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Taipei, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and New Delhi. All together, Springer publishes over 200 high-quality scientific journals in English from Asia.

ďWith the addition of Springer content, users will now be able to easily access valuable information by utilizing Naverís technology. Going forward, we will make the utmost effort to enhance the search experience for users,Ē said Sang Hun Kim, CEO of NHN Corporation.

ďBy this agreement with NHN, Springer has created a two-way academic communication line in Korea, bringing international academic content to Korea and introducing Korean academic content worldwide as well. Springerís high-quality international academic content is the perfect match for the academic content division of NHN,Ē said Maurice Kwong, Managing Director of Springer Asia.

Naver is the top search engine in South Korea with over 76 percent of internet searches done on its site. The search engine has 34 million registered users and generates one billion page views per day.
