Montreal, Canada 12 September 2017

Eric Archambault, CEO of 1science, is pleased to announce that 1science is now a key supplier to the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL), based in Munich, Germany. The Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (MPG) joins other leading research institutions, including Caltech and ETH Zurich, which use 1science products, a growing force in the advanced research information systems market. With this agreement, the more than 80 MPG centres gained access to 1findr™, 1science’s revolutionary abstracting and indexing database.

This puts the MPG at the forefront of search and access technology and, according to Dr. Ralf Schimmer, Director of Scientific Information Provision at the MPDL, contributes significantly to the MPG’s “goal of moving away from traditional subscription-based systems”. Schimmer says, “The Max Planck Digital Library regards 1science as a strategic partner that will help the Max Planck to systematically integrate access to freely available versions of scholarly publications and will be instrumental in supporting the transition strategy outlined in OA2020.”

Dr. Archambault says that “what 1science is doing with partners like MPDL is disrupting the old model dominated by outdated technology and assumptions about what users of peer-reviewed literature want.” Archambault says that what makes 1findr unique is the “aim to break down artificial barriers that limit indexing to less than half of peer-reviewed articles.” 1findr searches among 85 million articles published as early as 1665 in scholarly journals all over the world, in all languages, and all fields of research. Moreover, using the oaFindr link resolver, this advanced search solution provides hyperlinks to 30 million freely available articles.

The Max Planck Digital Library is part of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, which, with 18 Nobel laureates, is Germany’s most successful research organization. With more than 80 institutes producing 15,000 articles a year, the MPG is one of the world’s largest and prestigious research organizations. 1science is honoured by the trust and recognition shown by this great institution.

Key milestone for solution to relieve budgets and save time in research communication

Montreal, May 10, 2017-1science enables university and research libraries to radically reduce the time and money spent on accessing and distributing peer-reviewed articles in all fields of research, in all languages, and from all over the world. On four continents, libraries now use 1science products, leveraging 1science’s database of 25 million records to better manage their journal subscriptions, cost-effectively repair, rebuild and expand their journal collections, and quickly fill their repositories.

Libraries worldwide experience growing financial pressures while also being expected to support world class research. Researchers are increasingly short of time, being solicited to do free work everywhere, from peer reviews to helping fill repositories. “There are many solutions to access scholarly literature, but they are either expensive or labor intensive,” states Eric Archambault, 1science’s CEO. “We designed cost-effective solutions to relieve library budgets and to free researchers from time-consuming chores.”

1science’s product line starts with oaFigr, which informs research offices and scholcomm on the current state of their open access efforts compared to a global benchmark. oaFigr is also the best tool available to facilitate libraries’ and documentation centers’ transition to open access, helping librarians calculate offsets for gold and hybrid article processing charges and providing evidence on how to best manage journal subscriptions to maximize value for researchers and students.

The second product, oaFindr is a gateway platform allowing researchers to instantaneously find and download large numbers of peer-reviewed articles and their associated bibliographic records. It provides convenient and flexible access to its growing client base, using the discovery systems and link resolvers offered by EBSCO, ProQuest/Ex Libris and OCLC. A companion product, oaFindr+, helps librarians fill their repositories without having to involve busy faculty and researchers.

1science’s most radical innovation is oaFoldr, the only self-populating and self-updating repository solution on the market. It can be used by research councils, funding organizations and universities that want to almost instantly reach the fill-rate of the most advanced repositories, without having to ask researchers and librarians to spend precious time repeating the work of others.

1science has put in place a global distribution network to service institutions worldwide. Pioneer clients include the École Polytechnique in Montreal, Caltech in California and ETH in Zurich, in addition to other prestigious institutions such as Stanford, McGill and the University of Calgary, and OA leaders such as Trinity University (Texas).

About 1science
1science’s mission is to reduce the time and money spent on knowledge acquisition and diffusion. 1science develops products combining powerful search and analytics capacities with the highest quality, curated scholarly and scientific information. 1science is headquartered in Montreal, Canada, and is affiliated with Science-Metrix, a professional services company specializing in bibliometrics and program evaluation.

Based on a study of more than 3 million papers, the study shows that traditional scholarly journals need green open access to retain their relevance

1science today announces the availability of the first results of a large-scale study on open access. The results reveal that freely available scholarly papers, otherwise known as open access papers, have a 50% greater citation advantage than papers published in traditional subscription-based journals.

This means that traditional scholarly journals that restrict access by enforcing subscription paywalls and embargoes will lose their relevance for researchers and governments. Researchers want their papers to be cited as it demonstrates the relevance of their research, and governments want papers to be as widely available as possible as a large part of scholarly and scientific research is financed through public funds.

The new research also shows that the widely held belief that open access papers have a greater impact due to them being available earlier than their commercially published versions is not consistent with the large-scale data collected by 1science. In fact, based on a tie series comprising more than 17.4 million papers published between 2000 and 2015, it is clear that open access still suffers from the effect of embargoes enforced by traditional publishers who maintain that they require that delay to keep the subscription model alive.

“This study pretty much closes the debate on the argument of whether or not open access papers have a greater impact,” says Eric Archambault, President and CEO, 1science. “By examining more than 3 million papers, from very diverse sources of citations and over a sufficiently long time, and considering close to 35 million citations, it is the most robust study on the subject to date.”

Collaboration to provide academic libraries a wider content of open access scholarly articles

1science and EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) are pleased to announce their partnership to provide academic libraries access to a vast number of openly accessible scholarly articles when performing a search in EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS).

This is a natural partnership as both parties understand that academic institutions spend time and resources investing in discovery systems while aiming to increase their content, and provide to their users open access articles published in peer-reviewed journals. “We are pleased to be collaborating with EBSCO, a leading force in the discovery service market”, says Dr. Eric Archambault, CEO, 1science. “Through this agreement, clients common to EBSCO and 1science conveniently gain access to more than 15.5 million open access, scholarly papers, all directly in EDS. This partnership is in line with our mission to facilitate the flow of knowledge.”

EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified, customized index of an institution’s information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box. EBSCO Vice President of SaaS Strategy Tamir Borensztajn says that that this partnership will improve discoverability of content in open access journals. “EBSCO is one of the top providers of traffic to many open access journal websites and it provides high quality indexing for more than 11,000 open access journals. By partnering with 1science, researchers will be able to find and quickly access a wider content to the most relevant information available, within and beyond open access journals.”

1science offers an integrated solution that helps academic libraries increase the uptake of open access articles, the majority of which are from sources other than gold open access journals. With tools to bring open access to the fore, academic libraries can overcome their budget limitations with optimized subscriptions management and increase the visibility of their universities’ scholarly production. Now available through EDS, oaFindr allows library patrons to consistently find and directly download with one click, a rapidly growing number of green, hybrid and gold open access articles published in peer-reviewed scholarly journals.

Common 1science and EBSCO clients who will soon start benefitting from this partnership are The California Institute of Technology, The University of San Francisco and Trinity University.

This solution will also help them comply with governmental open access mandates, and support them in rapidly increasing the diffusion of their institutions’ scholarly production in a manner that is much less labour-intensive,” says Archambault.

The company signed its first contract with the library of Polytechnique Montréal, a university reputed for its initiatives in innovation and technology. “Our partnership is a natural alliance,” says Mathieu Lampron, VP Product, 1science, a Polytechnique Montréal graduate. “The Polytechnique Montréal library and 1science share similar core values of creativity, collaboration and openness. Their involvement has helped us improve our products.”

“The Polytechnique library is proud to partner with 1science and benefit from its sense of innovation and understanding of the challenges of scholarly communications,” says Sylvain Meunier, Library Director, Polytechnique Montréal. “This is the beginning of a collaboration that will allow us to offer a wide range of resources to our students and professors, while reducing costs and contributing to an ever greater access to knowledge through open access.”

The 1science solution is globally available now to all academic institutions.

1science is officially launching in the US at the Charleston Library Conference on November 4, 2015.
