Peer-to-peer journal access
Chemists could benefit immensely from a new service launched in September by scientific social media site ResearchGate. The system could make searchable thousands of research papers posted by users under their self-archiving agreements with journal publishers. CEO Ijad Madisch says that 1500 of the 38,000 journals listed on the site have a chemical background and almost two-thirds of these allow either pre- or post-print self-archiving of each authors' papers on their personal web page, which under current arrangements includes their personal page on the ResearchGate site.
