ASM; digital library platform DeepDyve; scientific publisher IOP Publishing; research tool SciFinder; and Elsevier’s abstract and citation database Scopus, all go live. Holding partnerships with over 35 publishers and integrators, GetFTR now supports streamlined access to over 51% of global research output.

“Designed with the scholarly reader and author in mind, GetFTR is dedicated to streamlining discovery and access journeys that advance scholarly research. Marking two years since GetFTR received its first entitlement requests, we are incredibly proud of the growth and strength in partnerships, additional use cases, and breadth across the scholarly communications ecosystem that we have and continue to build”, commented Dianne Benham, GetFTR Product. 

The addition of  IOPP, AIAA and ASM, will expand the content offering to researchers, enabling quick and easy access to the latest publications, benefiting from the publishers’ global research base and heritage across disciplines such as physics, astronomy, environmental sciences, microbiology and mathematics. GetFTR now enables fast access to content provided by over half of the scholarly publication market and continues to grow while maintaining its core mission to researchers.

Since launch, GetFTR has facilitated more than 2.4 billion entitlement checks and now sends over 12 million GetFTR links to discovery services each week, providing access to the version of record or an alternative version every time.  This will be further enhanced through the integration with DeepDyve, SciFinder and Scopus, as the market continues to adapt to the need for easy access to the most relevant and recent research papers, wherever the researcher wishes to access them. 

Heather Staines, Business Development, GetFTR: “Our focus remains on being an active partner to the research community – developing  our service and establishing new partnerships to make researchers’ access to the version of record easier and faster, and helping to be an active voice in, and for, the sector by supporting innovative projects like the new ScienceDirect pilot. As we move forward our goal is to better understand and develop ways to improve research discovery with the community, serving a growing number of use cases, in 2022 and beyond.”
