New service from joint publishers to streamline access to research

9 Dec 2019

Taylor and Francis has recently announced it has partnered with four other publishers to introduce Get Full Text Research (GetFTR) – a new, free to use programme that enables faster access for researchers to the published journal articles they need.

When researchers are using online tools to search for research, GetFTR will provide seamless pathways to the published journal articles they want. Researchers will be able to link directly to the most up to date and best version of an article. To create a seamless experience, researchers will be taken directly to the article, and just the article, from a wide variety of discovery tools that they are already using. Even if a researcher does not have the relevant institutional access to an article, publishers can provide an alternative version of the content. Importantly, GetFTR enables users to access content in this way both off-campus and on-campus.

Publishers and providers of online research services are encouraged and invited to take part in GetFTR’s development to help maximise its benefits for the research community.

The publishers include American Chemical Society, Elsevier, Springer Nature, and Wiley. Other publishers are invited and encouraged to participate, either during the pilot in early 2020, or after the pilot concludes. 

Members of IOM3 have access to a number of journals from Taylor and Francis, which cover a range of disciplines, from composites and corrosion to mining and tribolology.
