Get Full Text Research (GetFTR) Pilot Now Live
From the GetFTR Website:
In December 2019, we announced the development of Get Full Text Research (GetFTR), a new, free to use solution that enables faster access for researchers to the published journal articles they need. With seamless off-campus access to scholarly content more important than ever, we are excited to now share that scholarly platforms Dimensions, Figshare, Symplectic, and Mendeley have started a pilot of the GetFTR service. Even more discovery services are working on integrating GetFTR, which we will be able to announce in the coming weeks.
As part of the pilot, some researchers using Dimensions, Figshare, Symplectic, and Mendeley will begin to see a GetFTR article link next to subscription-based articles which will take them directly to the full-text article if they have access through their institutional affiliation. If a user has recently authenticated at their institution, the GetFTR link will take them directly to the full-text article on the publisher platform, whether they are on or off campus. If the user has not authenticated, they will be directed to their university login page to confirm their credentials before accessing the article. Entitlements from five publishers (American Chemical Society, Elsevier, Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis Group, and Wiley) are included in this initial pilot. You can find more information on how the GetFTR service works here.
