APA PsycInfo and R Discovery, CACTUS join GetFTR

7th January 2022

7 January 2022 – Get Full Text Research (GetFTR) is pleased to welcome two new integrator partners, APA PsycInfo and R Discovery from CACTUS. The addition of these integrators marks an auspicious start to the year for GetFTR, which is now partnered with over 30 publishers and integrators, with more new partners in discussion to join throughout the year.

“The addition of these integrators helps to support even more researchers, easing their access to the version of record,” says Dianne Benham, GetFTR Product. “We are tremendously proud of the progress that GetFTR has made over the past year, as evidenced by its growing number of partner publishers and integrators. We look forward to continuing to serve an even larger community of researchers, and to serving a growing number of use cases, in 2022 and beyond.”

Free to use for researchers, GetFTR integrates easily into APA PsycInfo and R Discovery, CACTUS – tools already in use by researchers around the world. APA PsycInfo has been the most trusted index of psychological science in the world and R Discovery is an AI-powered app from CACTUS to simplify the literature search. With GetFTR, researchers will be able to easily see which articles they are entitled to access and be directed to the version of record, or alternative version where provided, without having to navigate multiple publisher websites or numerous logins. By partnering with GetFTR, integrators can provide their users with a better experience by easing access to the research articles which they need.

“Researchers need quick and easy access to full-text content. APA PsycInfo’s integration with GetFTR allows the fastest, most seamless access to the latest publications and research in the behavioral sciences,” said Aaron Wood, Head of Product & Content Management in the Publishing Division at the American Psychological Association. “It is a critical component of the research and scholarly communications landscape.”

Launched in 2020, Researcher.Life (researcher.life) is an integrated ecosystem of tools and support designed to simplify the life of the researcher by CACTUS. Among a host of products, R Discovery is used by half a million researchers regularly for their literature search. “I am delighted that thousands of researchers are now using R Discovery to discover the most relevant and recent research papers every day,” said Abhishek Goel, CEO and Co-founder, CACTUS. “We wanted to go a step further and also help researchers access the full text of these papers; this key feedback from our users encouraged us to look for a solution that is especially critical during the pandemic, when they can’t visit their institute libraries frequently. In this era of technology, it is only fair that researchers look to digital products to solve for this need, especially when their institutes are already subscribed to numerous journals. This is where we’re glad to have found a partner in GetFTR. We believe that the integration with GetFTR on the R Discovery app will enable users to see which of their recommended papers are available for full text reading, and they can just click and access them seamlessly.”

GetFTR supports streamlined access to more than 50million research articles across numerous fields. Today it facilitates more than 40million entitlement checks a week and sends over 12million GetFTR links to discovery services each week, providing access to the version of record or an alternative version every time. These numbers are increasing weekly as GetFTR continues to grow. Designed with the scholarly reader and author in mind, GetFTR is dedicated to streamlining discovery and access journeys that advance scholarly research. The service enables fast access to content provided by nearly half of the scholarly publication market and continues to grow while maintaining its core mission to researchers.
