(Los Angeles, Calif. and Sunnyvale, Calif., 8 April 2013) – Reprints Desk Inc. and DeepDyve Inc., the leading online rental service for scholarly and professional research articles, announced today an agreement to expand access to full text articles for registered DeepDyve.com users by supplementing DeepDyve’s existing article rental and PDF purchasing service with an expanded list of titles for which the full text can be legally acquired via Reprints Desk.
Users can search or browse DeepDyve’s catalog containing millions of scholarly articles across thousands of peer-reviewed journals. Upon discovering a relevant article, users can rent ‘view-only’ full-text articles for as little as USD1 per article. They can also purchase an article following a rental or buy immediately without renting if they need a printable-PDF version of a full text article. Previously, users could purchase only a subset of articles directly from DeepDyve. This agreement with document delivery supplier Reprints Desk now makes the majority of DeepDyve’s collection available for purchase.
“DeepDyve primarily serves information professionals and scientists at small to mid-sized businesses who are no longer affiliated with an academic library and need simple and affordable access to this vital research. We are pleased to offer them an expanded method for obtaining full text articles that were not previously available for purchase in the DeepDyve.com service,” said William Park, CEO of DeepDyve. “This collaboration between DeepDyve and Reprints Desk represents yet another way that we’re providing access to participating publishers’ content and ensuring that their intellectual property is protected by making article acquisition easy and legal.”
“This agreement continues to drive value for Reprints Desk’s and DeepDyve’s respective publishing partners by growing and penetrating underserved markets,” said Jan Peterson, Head of Publisher Relations at Reprints Desk. “Rentals and document delivery complement subscription-based access and provide a copyright-compliant gateway to scholarly content.”
