Aluguel de artigos científicos !?

“DeepDyve ... provides a research engine that searches the “deep web.” It allows researchers, students, technical professionals, business users, and other information consumers can access a wealth of untapped information that resides on the “Deep Web” – the vast majority of the Internet that is not indexed by traditional, consumer-based search engines.”

“OCTOBER 27, 2009 – Sunnyvale, CALIF — DeepDyve today unveiled the world’s largest online rental service for scientific, technical and medical research. From a growing database spanning thousands of journals, DeepDyve now gives consumers and professionals access to more than 30 million articles for as little as $0.99 per article.”

Yesterday, the online article intermediary DeepDyve announced a rental model for scientific papers, prompting one news outlet to call this new business, “Netflix for Researchers.”

DeepDyve is a search engine specializing in indexing and providing direct access to scientific articles. But it does so in a novel way — by renting, not selling, access.

Their motto is, “Research. Rent. Read.” It forgoes the ownership model of access. Like DVDs that need to be mailed back to Netflix, DeepDyve is based on a short-term rental period of journal article access.

Users can sign up for three types of membership:

  1. 1.Basic. Pay as you go at $0.99 per article for a 24-hour rental

  2. 2.Silver. A monthly subscription plan at $9.99 , which allows 20 articles at any one time with a 7-day rental, and

  3. 3.Gold. A subscription plan of $19.99 allows unlimited rentals with no rental period

The list of publishers who have teamed up with DeepDyve include: Oxford University Press, Sage, Taylor & Francis, Wiley-Blackwell, and PLoS, along with many of the society publishers hosted by HighWire and BioOne. DeepDyve is also indexing open access repositories like the arXiv and PubMed Central. Conspicuously missing from list are some of the biggest publishers that charge the highest pay-per-view prices, Elsevier and Springer.”
