BioMed Central Content Added to AuthorMapper

BioMed Central , the world’s largest open access publisher, with over 200 peer-reviewed journals, has  now added data for its 60,000+ published articles to AuthorMapper.com.

Publishers interested in including their STM metadata on AuthorMapper and/or in Exemplar should contact:  authormapper@springer.com.

Welcome to the official blog of AuthorMapper.com. We’ll be using this blog to inform you about new developments with the AuthorMapper platform as well as gather all of your good ideas and feedback.

We’re just at the beginning of how geo-locative services can add value to scientific publishing, and we’re looking forward to taking AuthorMapper in entirely new directions (as long as they are ultimately useful destinations for the scientific community).

The goal of AuthorMapper is to provide a powerful knowledge discovery tool for the entire STM research community across discipline and scientific publishers. If you are an STM publisher and are … Continue Reading
