Deep Web Technologies has integrated its Explorit federated search application with Reprints Desk’s Article Galaxy. Our company and Reprints Desk share the goal of facilitating literature discovery so integrating our technology with theirs was natural.
The recent Reprints Desk press release describes the feature:
Federated search, powered by Deep Web Technologies, for simultaneously searching across multiple online databases covering more than 52 million records, with easy ordering from search results that have been aggregated, ranked, and de-duplicated
The partnership between Deep Web Technologies and Reprints Desk began last October with a press release which reads in part:
Scott Ahlberg, Head of Corporate Services at Reprints Desk, stated, “The integration with Explorit enables Reprints Desk to help its growing base of document delivery customers maximize the value of their journal subscriptions, while filling content coverage gaps. It also allows us to meet our customers’ need for integrating search into the literature retrieval workflow, while enriching the growing number of research services that are bundled into our hosted article management software platform. With the Reprints Desk implementation of Explorit, native publisher databases will be ranked first followed by PubMed and other secondary sources.”
The integration includes RSS feeds for Alerts results so that users can easily see, within the Article Galaxy application, new articles that meet their interests. Future plans include a unified login to our Alerts system so that users can easily switch between creating alerts with Explorit and accessing the Article Galaxy accounts.
