Zendy Introduces Search Engine for OA Research
Zendy announced the following:
A new, free scholarly search engine for easy browsing of Open Access academic content has been launched [globally on Oct. 26] to coincide with International Open Access Week.
Zendy Open features over 30 million Open Access publications from reputable sources and journals on hundreds of subjects, from Sociology and Political Science to Atomic and Molecular Physics, in more than 75 languages including Arabic, Chinese, Finnish, German, Indonesian, Russian, and Swedish. It also offers comprehensive faceting allowing the user to search for academic resources according to the date issued, material type, publisher, language, and subject. …
By automatically filtering out any Open Access content with a non-commercial licence, the search engine provides an easy way to browse free Open Access literature and research and brings the prospect of professional and personal development closer to everyone, especially those who are unable to afford the traditionally costly subscription to publications.
Kamran Kardan, founder and CEO of Zendy’s parent company, Knowledge E, says, “We are incredibly thrilled to be launching Zendy Open globally because it reflects our ethos as an organisation. Since the inception of Zendy in 2018, the team has been working tirelessly to uncover ways that could facilitate access to credible research. We view today’s launch as an invaluable milestone on the journey towards liberating high quality scientific research and literature.”
