R Discovery and Springer Nature Partner to Create An Open-access Content Bank for Global Researchers
The partnership will enable researchers to access Springer Nature’s content in the form of daily recommendations on R Discovery
R Discovery, a Cactus Communications (CACTUS) brand, has partnered with Springer Nature, global academic publisher, to help broaden the reach of open access (OA) content to the global researcher community. The inclusion of Springer Nature’s OA portfolio into R Discovery means that the platform offers its over 1.4 million researchers access to high-quality OA content in over 32,000 journals worldwide across a breadth of subject areas.
Commenting on the partnership, Abhishek Goel, CEO & Co-founder, CACTUS, said, “Helping the scientific community with access to a vast bank of content is one of our top priorities. Our aim is to bring the most relevant and recently published scientific literature to the fingertips of researchers across the globe. By providing access to full-text open-access papers, we can facilitate content discovery and help save reading time. With this association, researchers will now have access to some of the most valuable OA research published in Springer Nature via the R Discovery app.”
Till Moepert, Vice President Indirect Channels at Springer Nature said, “Researchers are at the heart of what we do and ensuring access and engagement with high-quality content is central to the advancement of knowledge and discovery. With a long history in OA, we are committed to supporting researchers with streamlined routes to high-quality content in the fields of science, technology, medicine and the humanities and social sciences, alongside our wider commitment to supporting open data and open research, for example by creating the largest linked open data set in SciGraph and supporting FAIR data projects through our Text and Data Mining API’s. Partnering with the Cactus Communications R Discovery App enables us to continue this rich tradition of making open research accessible through new platforms and avenues and supporting the research community with access to the widest possible content, tools, and services.”
Among a host of CACTUS products, R Discovery is used by researchers regularly for literature search via the app or the web version.
