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.
See also: How units are deducted.
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.
