ingenta Launches Next-Generation Technology with Enhanced Content

Building on its acquisition of The UnCover Company in March, ingenta ( has announced that access to the UnCover database is now live and available through ingenta's Web site. ingenta's content can now be delivered in multiple formats; with expanded full-text delivery, users can choose between Adobe PDF or HTML delivery direct from the UnCover database or via fax delivery. According to the company, the service offers one of the largest Web article databases to date, with over 11 million citations and full-text articles from journals and publications across the world, all available from a single point, and archived back to 1988.

In addition, ingenta has implemented its access-control technology for corporate-and library-account authentication into the new UnCover service, allowing institutions to track subscription records and access journals they subscribe to free-of-charge. ingenta's secure server software (SSL) for e-commerce transactions allows its users to review abstracts and bibliographic information for free, and its subscription authentication ensures fast and free access for subscribers. There are also pay-per view options for nonsubscribers, allowing for flexible, one-off document purchases.

ingenta has also announced a partnership with Akamai Technologies, Inc. to provide worldwide users with a faster, more effective online service. Through Akamai's technology, key parts of the ingenta service will be located in over 5,000 servers worldwide, providing users with faster download of ingenta's Web pages and a much faster and more efficient delivery of ingenta's Internet content, according to the company.

At the same time, ingenta has implemented a new technology solution in its core databases resulting in search results reportedly being returned to the desktop up to 30-times faster. This achieves ingenta's aim to process a search against over 11 million article records, link to full text or fax delivery, match against a user's journal-subscription rights, and return the results within 5 seconds for over 90 percent of its users.
