A new partnership was recently announced between 1science and EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO). Together they will provide academic libraries access to a vast number of openly accessible scholarly articles when performing a search in EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). Library Technology Guides brought this interesting information to us in their article, “1science and EBSCO Information Services announce partnership.”

This symbiotic partnership understands 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.

EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified and customized index of an institution’s information resources. With the new partnership, researchers will be able to search wider content and quickly access the most relevant information available as 1science offers an integrated solution that helps academic libraries increase the uptake of open access articles.

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