About

Exemplar searches over 1,900 journals and close to 4,000 books from Springer’s collection to find authentic examples of how a word or phrase is used in published literature. Comprehensive coverage includes both current and archival content in all major subject areas including the life sciences, medicine, engineering, mathematics, computer science, business, and law, contributed by some of the world’s leading academics in these fields. Exemplar is continuously updated with new content as it is published.

Exemplar Snippet Search is for:

  • Authors who want suggestions on how to express themselves or want to confirm how a particular word or phrase is used in published literature.
  • Teachers who are looking for authentic phrases and sentences for teaching and testing.
  • Editors and reviewers who want to confirm whether or not a particular turn of phrase is justified by usage.

Exemplar was created via a collaboration between Springer Science & Business Media and the Center for Biomedical and Health Linguistics. For more information, to send feedback or propose future ideas, please contact us at exemplar@springer.com
