ProQuest’s Open Web Article Linking is Live

A new ProQuest initiative researches article-level links to popular periodicals published on the open web, simplifying existing access to full-text articles at no charge to library patrons. The company has just launched the feature by uncovering links to current and back files of TIME magazine with links to content from other magazines coming later this year. These links from ProQuest's abstracts and indexes will go directly to the publisher's articles on their own open websites while the A&I will be searched on the ProQuest platform along with other ProQuest content.

The new ProQuest feature will capture fresh and archived content, with TIME articles available from as early as 1986. Open Web Article Linking search results will be integrated along with other ProQuest results, including a full record with a "link to full-text" icon. The link will take the user to subscribed content, if available on ProQuest or on e-journal, and to the article on the open web, if not. A new window will open to the specific article, providing the publisher's own full-text display while still keeping the original search results separately available. Further, the full bibliographic record will be available and downloadable into RefWorks and other citation tools.

Leveraging its editorial expertise and authoritative indexing, ProQuest has built its own links and technology to align with and support publishers' open web strategies. Publishers will benefit from increased traffic to their websites and exposure to their content.
