IoP Joins CrossRef Search

:: The Institute of Physics has joined CrossRef:

The Institute of Physics is pleased to be participating in CrossRef Search, a new initiative enabling users to perform cross-publisher, full text searches of the latest scholarly research.

CrossRef Search is available free of charge in our Electronic Journals service. It can also be found on the Web sites of the other eight participating publishers, which include The American Physical Society, Nature Publishing Group and Oxford University Press.

CrossRef Search has been developed by CrossRef in partnership with Google™. Said Ed Pentz, Executive Director of CrossRef:

'CrossRef is very excited to work with Google on this pilot program. Researchers, scientists and librarians should find CrossRef Search a valuable search tool. Now, researchers and students interested in mining published scholarship have immediate access to targeted, interdisciplinary and cross-publisher search on full text using the powerful and familiar Google technology'.

CrossRef Search is a pilot program which will run through 2004 to evaluate functionality and gather feedback. Further information on the initiative is available.
