Clarivate Analytics Acquires Research Startup Kopernio, One-Click Access to Research Articles

Note: We first mentioned Kopernio on infoDOCKET earlier this year when the company received funding from a UK government tech funding incubator.

From Clarivate Analytics (April 10, 2018):

2018-04-10_08-42-39Kopernio uses artificial intelligence to enable users to seamlessly access journal articles with just one-click, saving researchers time and frustration when accessing their institutional subscriptions. Kopernio automatically detects what individual or institutional subscriptions a user already possesses and facilitates instant access to the chosen article. It will also suggest free, alternative legal versions of the content that might already exist on openly available platforms if a user lacks the required subscriptions to access content behind a paywall.

2018-04-10_08-44-16Kopernio was founded by Jan Reichelt and Ben Kaube, the co-founders of Mendeley and Newsflo, respectively. With a proven track record of creating innovative technology solutions for the research community, Reichelt will join the group as Managing Director, Web of Science, and report to Annette Thomas (CEO, Scientific and Academic Research), whilst continuing to support Kopernio’s growth and strategic direction as the company’s President. Kaube will join as Managing Director, Kopernio.
