HighBeam Offers New Blogging Tools

HighBeam Research, Inc. ( has launched some new blogging tools for its members: HighBeam Blog Enhancer and HighBeam RSS. The new tools allow bloggers to track, search, and share HighBeam Research content within blogs or Web sites.

Blog Enhancer makes it easy for bloggers to incorporate content from the HighBeam Research Engine's collection of 33 million articles. To share their research, bloggers need only click the "Blog this Article" link found within previews and articles on HighBeam Research and, at their option, create a custom welcome message, add an excerpt from and include notes about any article. HighBeam Research then provides the HTML code (ready for pasting into a blog) for a robust citation for the article—including title, publication, and excerpt as well as a link to the blogger's personalized page on HighBeam Research that includes the article preview or full-text article.

Bloggers who are HighBeam Research Full Members (those who pay a monthly or annual subscription fee) can share full-text articles with their readers—even with readers who are not members of HighBeam Research. Readers can access full text for 7 days from the time of posting, after which blog readers will still see the citation and article abstract, which do not expire. Bloggers who are HighBeam Basic Members (free membership) have the ability to share article previews.

HighBeam RSS lets users track dynamically created topics. RSS feeds can easily be created based on keywords and/or by publication; users will receive an update in their favorite RSS reader as soon as new articles related to their research are added to the HighBeam Research Engine.
