As part of the agreements, the new European resellers will expand Reprints Desk's market penetration in Western Europe and offer the company's Article Galaxy Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) research platform to European researchers and scientists, allowing for one-click access to scientific documents at the point of discovery and unlimited, data-driven research intelligence. Selected features include:
