Reprints Desk, Inc. Announces New Open Access Filter

Reprints Desk, Inc. announced the launch of a new Open Access (OA) filter for the company’s document delivery service that is used by research-driven companies and institutions to acquire single copies of scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles. It helps corporate and academic customers avoid unnecessary spending on content by checking OA status and delivering article-level links for each matching order.

The OA filter sends customers to the source and supplements other Reprints Desk order filtering capabilities for subscription, token, print collection, and workgroup repository content, employing a dynamic process-driven approach to identify OA content rather than a data-driven one that may have limitations in coverage and accuracy.

“The first rule of document delivery is to help customers avoid unnecessary document delivery expenditures. We have made significant system improvements over the last year with those customer savings specifically in mind,” said Peter Derycz, Reprints Desk President and CEO. “The new service feature for finding Open Access articles on the Internet does just that for larger research-driven companies who switch to Reprints Desk. It aids smaller organizations in the same way, but also delivers much needed cost controls and time savings so they can safely transition to end user self-servicing.”

OA is the practice of providing unrestricted online access to scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles and increasingly other content types. According to the results of one study, OA is responsible for roughly 20% of the total output of peer-reviewed articles published. Other recent developments include Research Councils UK (RCUK) announcement that beginning in April 2013, scientific papers must be made free to access within 6 months of publication if they come from work paid for by one of the U.K.’s seven government-funded grant agencies, which spend billions of dollars each year on research.
