1science launches its analytics and discovery platform 1findr
- 25 Apr 2018

1science has announced the general availability of its innovative analytics and discovery platform 1findr. 1findr aims to include all articles published in peer-reviewed journals, in all fields of research, in all languages and from every country. With both the free and the institutional editions offering twice as many open access articles as the leading competitor, 1findr is a giant leap in convenience, affordability and accessibility.

The free edition of 1findr takes on uncurated data sources such as Google Scholar, while the institutional edition cost-effectively replaces numerous specialised abstracting and indexing databases.

Both the free and the institutional editions comprise an initial curated collection of 90 million records. 1findr uses the systematic one-click download of open access articles pioneered by 1science in 2015: '1findr enables everyone to legally access 27 million green and gold open access articles harvested by 1science from thousands of renowned organisational sources and repositories such as arXiv, DOAJ and SciELO.'

The institutional edition offers a rapidly growing set of features that will appeal to both entry-level and power users, including organisation search and single-click multiple downloads for up to 50 full-text articles. 1findr will soon offer even more immersive searching, driven by expertly designed citation metrics and journal impact statistics.

1findr helps users work faster and more intelligently while radically expanding the breadth and depth of the peer-reviewed literature conveniently made available by librarians to their patrons.

Wolters Kluwer Health expands local language search capabilities in Ovid Discovery
- 18 Apr 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health has announced an expansion of local language search capabilities in Ovid® Discovery that lets clinicians quickly and easily search evidence-based guidelines and other medical resources in German, Chinese, and six other languages.

Clinicians now have a single point of entry to search across a healthcare institution's information resources in eight languages. Ovid Discovery lets users enter a simple search and retrieve results from their organisation's library and electronic health record (EHR) system as well as up to 100 million other biomedical resources on the Ovid platform.

In partnership with Pschyrembel, German clinicians and researchers can now search Ovid in their native language and receive results in German and English. Clinicians and researchers in China can also search in their native language with integrated Simplified and Traditional Chinese dictionaries from UpToDate®.

Ovid Discovery also includes language dictionaries and controlled vocabulary thesauri in Dutch, French, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Portuguese. Native language search capabilities promote increased use of an institution's resource library. Clinicians can be more effective with faster and more accurate searches for the evidence-based and peer-reviewed information they need to make better-informed treatment and care decisions.

Open Dissertations project from EBSCO Information Services and BiblioLabs goes live
- 09 Apr 2018

OpenDissertations.org, the project from EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and BiblioLabs, has gone live. More than 800,000 Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) are now available for public search and discovery, with more than one million expected by June.

EBSCO Open Dissertations is committed to providing open and free access to ETD metadata and content. In addition to the fully open website, EBSCO will include ETD metadata in EBSCO Discovery Service to facilitate access and improve content discovery for researchers. With more and more universities now hosting and distributing their own ETDs on the open web, EBSCO and BiblioLabs have created a service that freely aggregates and exposes this valuable content. EBSCO Open Dissertations extends access to any interested researchers worldwide and drives traffic to Institutional Repositories.

BiblioLabs CEO Mitchell Davis says the project is open to libraries around the world, and some of the first data made available for public search includes ETDs from across the U.K. that are included in the British Library's EThOS Service. As UKSG 2018 approaches, he says there could be no better time to launch.

More than 30 institutions from four continents are currently participating in the EBSCO Open Dissertations project. These institutions represent more than one million dissertations that will be searchable from www.opendissertations.org. Since the project was launched in November, more than 50 institutions have reached out to discuss the project and commit resources.

Opendissertations.org is the next step in an ongoing effort to open access to dissertations. In 2014, EBSCO and the H.W. Wilson Foundation created American Doctoral Dissertations, which contained indexing from the H.W. Wilson print publication, Doctoral Dissertations Accepted by American Universities, 1933-1955. In 2015, the H.W. Wilson Foundation agreed to support the expansion of the scope of the American Doctoral Dissertations database to include records for dissertations and theses from 1955 to the present with the goal of creating a single portal for ETDs which could be added to university profiles and accessed online.

These elements, which draw from ProQuest and LibraryThing data are now available for students and researchers to view on the Ebook Central 'book detail' page, which provides real-time availability and key bibliographic information for ebooks in a library's holdings.

Syndetics Unbound enrichment elements will release on Ebook Central this month to Academic Complete customers. Those who subscribe to Syndetics Unbound for their catalog or discovery layer will also get the functionality for any ebooks acquired through Ebook Central.

More university presses contribute to Academic Complete than any other subscription, and in the next few years it will be the only subscription to carry more than 14,000 high-demand, high use Wiley titles. Academic Complete also includes a Book Display Widget for promoting titles on any website.
