Reprints Desk Enhances Doc Delivery Service
Reprints Desk, Inc. (www.reprintsdesk.com) announced the release of enhancements to its STM Document Delivery service that enable research-oriented organizations to transform article ordering and delivery into an enterprisewide, content workflow solution. Notable enhancements include the addition of web services technology capabilities that allow users to order directly from their intranets or corporate websites and client access to the Reprints Desk delivery engine for filling document delivery orders from existing in-house library collections.
For companies that require document delivery services as a critical research support function and that want to improve researchers’ ability to order directly without mediation, Reprints Desk works directly with customers’ IT and library staff to integrate web services. The benefits of web services for document delivery include saved time for researchers who no longer need to manually provide user-related information for each order, increased security for companies that no longer have to manage user-identity access across multiple locations, and the ability to seamlessly integrate article delivery with e-detailing and consumer healthcare websites. Reprints Desk now also provides client access to its article delivery engine, enabling a single reporting view across internal and external document delivery operations and providing patrons with a uniform document delivery experience regardless of the source of the article.
STM Document Delivery is a service that was launched by Reprints Desk in 2007. The service simplifies single article procurement, offers delivery of most articles within a few minutes to a few hours, and provides original and clean-color articles by default. Reprints Desk delivers PDFs using a proprietary Adobe-based DRM solution that requires no plug-ins.
