Project MUSE [is] announc[ing] a partnership with Boston-based publishing technology company ReadCube to index our 626 scholarly journals with ReadCube’s Discover service. [230,000 articles are currently available].
The indexed collection is not only searchable across ReadCube’s web, desktop, and mobile reading portals but also included in ReadCube’s search engines, related article feeds and popular recommendation engine. The partnership will enhance the ability of researchers to locate and utilize the MUSE journal content made available to them via their institutions’ subscriptions. ReadCube’s standard apps are free to users.
“Our mission is to ensure that our collection is discoverable and easily available to readers worldwide,” said Wendy Queen, Director of Project MUSE. “At the same time, we look to offer our readers the best possible reading experience. This exciting collaboration with ReadCube supports both these objectives.”
In addition to deep-indexing, when read within any of the free ReadCube apps, articles will be available with ReadCube’s popular enhanced reading features. These include hyperlinked in-line citations, annotations, clickable author names, instant access to supplemental content and figures, social sharing, and altmetrics.
