Reprints Desk Announces Open Access Filter

Mar 20, 2013

Reprints Desk, Inc. announced the launch of a new Open Access (OA) filter for the company's document delivery service. The OA filter sends customers to the source and supplements other Reprints Desk order filtering capabilities for subscription, token, print collection, and workgroup repository content, employing a dynamic process-driven approach to identify OA content.

Open access (OA) is the practice of providing unrestricted online access to scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles and increasingly other content types. Corporations, academic institutions and government organizations use document delivery as a legal method for retrieving single copies of full-text papers from scholarly peer-reviewed journals when subscription access does not exist.
