TRIAL: ResearchNow (bepress)

The Library doesn't actually have a trial of ResearchNow, as the site has a Quasi-open access policy which means that you can access full-text articles already - but you have to fill in a web form each you want to do so. If the Library were to subscribe then this barrier would be removed.

ResearchNow brings together the bepress
journals in Economics, Business, and Marketing; Law; Political Science, Public Affairs, and Humanities; Health and Medicine; and Science and Technology with institutional repositories, subject repositories and working papers.

We now that several of you have expressed an interest in bepress journals by taking the trouble to fill in the web form to access full-text articles. We are now encouraging more of you to try ResearchNow and tell us what you think.

After trying ResearchNow, whether or not you have used it before, please leave a comment below.

BePress provides a useful 'peer review' feature and also allows searching by keywords in the full texts as well as abstracts and titles. This is a very good source of journals as well as working papers.
