Knowledge Unlatched (KU), the central platform for Open Access (OA) financing models, and ScienceOpen, a freely accessible discovery network, have announced a new partnership to provide better reading analytics for books and journals funded through KU.
By adding book indexing to its discovery platform of 60 million article records, ScienceOpen now provides a rich, interactive search experience across an expanded range of content types. Linked chapters, citations, references, authors, and keywords deeply connect the books to other content, building a contextual environment that invites further exploration and creates new analytics. With this cooperation citation, data will be provided to all institutions, publishers, and researchers working with Knowledge Unlatched in their regular usage statistics.
Analytics are central to both publishers and libraries working with KU, as they help them understand the impact of Open Access. Through this new partnership with ScienceOpen, KU will be able to provide not only usage data but also citation information for books to them. ScienceOpen provides next-generation services to academic publishers embedded in an interactive discovery platform, from book sales and promotional journal collections to Open Access hosting and full publishing packages.
