ProQuest and Google Collaborate to Improve Researchers’ Workflows

ProQuest will enable the full text of its scholarly journal content to be indexed in Google Scholar, improving research outcomes. Work is underway and the company anticipates that by the third-quarter of 2015, users starting their research in Google Scholar will be able to access scholarly content via ProQuest. “At ProQuest, we design our solutions for ease of access for our end-users and customers. That often means teaming with other providers of research tools to make our solutions more valuable and compatible,” said Kurt Sanford, ProQuest CEO. “Our relationship with Google is the latest example of actions we’re taking to make it simple for researchers to access content in their libraries no matter where they start their research.” Read more about what’s behind ProQuest’s teamwork with Google here: http://bit.ly/PQandGS. The collaboration between Google and ProQuest enables authenticated ProQuest users to be recognized when they search using Google Scholar, directly connecting them to full-text scholarly content in their libraries’ collections. Users who are not recognized will be sent to a landing page with the abstract or an image of the first page, protecting all rights holders. To read full text, the users will authenticate themselves. There is nothing for libraries to set up – the linking will be seamless and automatic.
