ResearchGate, the professional network for researchers, has integrated with GetFTR's new opt-in service that provides a faster and easier way to manage entitlement information in content syndication arrangements. The service enables publishers that opt-in to use it to benefit from a high-performing and easy way to manage their entitlement information. It also provides researchers with quick and effortless access to the articles that they are entitled to. GetFTR is currently in talks with other discovery and reading platforms to extend this offering further.
The integrated service offering from GetFTR has been tested by ResearchGate over the past few months, and now ResearchGate's 25 million-plus researcher users both on- and off-campus will benefit from greater access to high-quality research content. The service will also increase the reach and accessibility of the content that ResearchGate's publisher partners share through the network.
Dianne Benham, GetFTR Product Director, stated that the new service speaks directly to their goal of enabling improved discovery and streamlined access to trusted scholarly content. They have valued ResearchGate and Springer Nature's expertise as they have developed and tested this new service, and they look forward to working with additional partners in the future.
GetFTR's core offering is focused on making researchers' journey to find and access trusted content easier, while optimizing researchers' pathways to authoritative content. The service remains committed to enhancing its core offering and exploring new use cases such as reference list and discovery service integration to achieve this goal.Click here to read the original press release.
