Infotrieve, Inc. announced that it had converted ArticleFinder, its online scientific, technical, and medical (STM) database with more than 26 million citations and eight million abstracts from over 54,000 journals, to a free access model. The move provides scientists and researchers, who work for corporations and are subject to different copyright regulations than their academic counterparts, with a solution for conducting STM searches across literature from multiple providers. The solution seamlessly retrieves full-text scholarly journal articles that they need on a pay-per-view basis. ArticleFinder is similar to GoogleScholar. Utilizing ArticleFinder in conjunction with the Infotrieve Virtual Library technology platform, corporate clients can also securely include their holdings and electronic journal subscriptions within user searches in order to increase the body of content that is searched and minimize duplicate purchases. While ArticleFinder searches are executed at the citation and abstract level rather than the full-text, Infotrieve does provide full-text searching with “key word in context” previews within the Life Science Research Center search solution that it offers.
