Redwood City, CA – May 16, 2018
DeepDyve today unveiled a new suite of researcher workflow tools designed to streamline the scholarly literature search and curation process. These tools are freely available as part of the DeepDyve Freelancer plan, and also included in DeepDyve Pro, the subscription-based online rental service for scientific and scholarly research. While DeepDyve Pro is designed for researchers in small to mid-sized organizations who do not have institutional access to peer-reviewed content, DeepDyve Freelancer is suitable for any researcher who routinely uses PubMed and Google Scholar. With today’s launch, these powerful new tools are immediately available to DeepDyve’s 1.5 million registered users.
Based on surveys and interviews, DeepDyve found that nearly all of its users followed a similar process in how they conducted the initial phases of their research - run searches, save results, read and filter articles, repeat. However, these same researchers were frustrated by the lack of tools to organize this critical and time-consuming process, often relying on a patchwork of applications from MS Word to Notepad to simply keeping open dozens of browser tabs. With its latest offering, DeepDyve delivers a service to centrally initiate and manage the literature search and curation process:
DeepDyve also released the latest version of its proprietary browser plugin that integrates Google Scholar and PubMed activity with a user’s DeepDyve account. Searches conducted at those sites are automatically saved in My Library, and users can add any Google Scholar or PubMed article result to a DeepDyve List for future reference.
“Integration with Google Scholar and PubMed is an important innovation for our users as they can now save disparate third-party data and aggregate it into their DeepDyve libraries,” said William Park, CEO of DeepDyve. “While there are many tools available for users downstream in the research authoring process, we believe there is an unmet need in the earlier stage of research which involves the iterative, often messy process of searching, evaluating and filtering results into a short list of influential articles.”
