LOS ANGELES, Jan. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Reprints Desk, Inc., a Research Solutions (OTCQB: RSSS) company and top-rated document delivery supplier, has officially launched its Article Galaxy Widget, a time-saving tool that provides web browser access to scientific, technology and medical (STM) research articles indexed by more than 50 popular search sites and discovery databases, like Google Scholar, PubMed, ResearchGATE, Web of Science and Scopus, as well as numerous publisher websites.
Launched as beta version in June 2014, Article Galaxy is already in use at dozens of research-oriented organizations—from Fortune 500 companies to boutique research firms—where it has received widespread praise and appreciation for its ease-of-use and advanced functionality. Article Galaxy is now available to all Reprints Desk customers in biotechnology, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, engineering and other research-intensive industries.
Researchers simply launch the Article Galaxy Widget as a browser bookmark while they are viewing any website that references published journal articles. The widget's intelligent user interface standardizes the search and presentation of full-text articles, and can quickly source content from existing journal subscriptions, Open Access, tokens, past single article document purchases or time-limited rentals. The widget also features quick filtering by source type, instant pricing, and a "more like this" function that identifies related scholarly papers.
"Google Scholar, PubMed and other search and discovery database tools do a great job of helping users find mission-critical content," noted Todd Everett, director of Emerging Technology at Reprints Desk. "However, navigating multiple full-text sources and various paywalls is a time-consuming, cumbersome and often frustrating process for researchers, especially when dealing with multiple citations. Our Article Galaxy Widget represents a breakthrough technology that removes these difficulties. Its 'zero-clicks away' approach allows researchers access to the full-text without leaving their preferred discovery environments. By providing a single, standardized method for all content purchases, the widget also generates cost savings by identifying when it is more economical to subscribe to a journal or platform rather than rely upon single document downloads."
'Zero-clicks away' is a term coined by Outsell, Inc., a research and advisory firm focused solely on media, information, and technology, in a report by Outsell VP and Lead Analyst, Chuck Richard. "Zero-clicks away is a disruptive design commandment and design model that provides information and data companies, platform services, and workflow solutions providers with a compelling advantage." Richard says embedding access into whatever service a professional is using drives stickier solutions and captures larger share of day. "Adhering to Zero Clicks eliminates the need to continually retrain and remind customers to use the service."
Article Galaxy Widget's journal subscription access and single article document delivery service are powered by Reprints Desk, with rental capabilities offered by DeepDyve. Reprints Desk and DeepDyve work closely with leading journal publishers in the areas of science, technology, engineering and medicine, supporting legal, convenient and cost-effective content access.
Corporations, academic institutions, and government organizations around the world rely on Reprints Desk and its online platform Article Galaxy for legal, low cost access to full-text STM content. Founded by Peter Derycz, who is also the founder of Infotrieve, Reprints Desk has ranked #1 overall and in each category in a document delivery vendor survey of buyers conducted by Outsell.
