*BASE - Bielefeld Academic Search Engine
BASE is one of the world's most voluminous search engines especially for academic web resources. BASE provides more than 240 million documents from more than 8,000 content providers. You can access the full texts of about 60% of the indexed documents for free (Open Access). We are indexing the metadata of all kinds of academically relevant resources – journals, institutional repositories, digital collections etc. – which provide an OAI interface and use OAI-PMH for providing their contents (see our Golden Rules for Repository Managers). The index is continuously enhanced by integrating further sources / content provider (Become a content provider). BASE is a registered OAI service provider. In comparison to commercial search engines, BASE is charcterised by the following features: Start searching BASE Related:  Week 11: Academic Search / Social Scholarship

ORCID | Connecting Research and Researchers International Baccalaureate Welcome to the new International Education Research Database! This reference database is a free online resource for students, researchers, teachers and others involved in all aspects of international education research. The IERD is a collaborative effort by a range of different parties interested in the field, and its success depends heavily on the additions of its users. Because it is a referencing resource, rather than an online library, the IERD does not hold the actual full text publications, however in many instances a link is provided to the full text or to the publisher's website. If you would like to add a new reference, please register first.

*Google Scholar: Library Partner or Database Competitor? By Nancy K. Herther Information professionals rely on vetted sources of information in order to provide the best quality service to their clients—whether they are students, researchers, or businesses. The internet has profoundly transformed our communication expectations, access to information, product evaluation, and buying behaviors. It has disrupted the business models of retail stores, the travel industry, and music. For libraries, it has created serious challenges in the provision of quality information services. What is the role of Google Scholar (GS) in libraries today? GS has not only become a common fixture in library literature but is also becoming ubiquitous in information-seeking behavior of users. Since 2009, the reliance on Google products has risen dramatically in academic and research institutions as financial and public support have declined. However, Smit sees a clear, ongoing need for quality scholarly databases with sophisticated search options.

Encyclopedia Britannica Rutgers University Begins Implementation of ORCID iDs | Rutgers University Libraries Today, Rutgers University begins a formal universitywide implementation of Open Researcher & Contributor IDs (ORCID iDs). An ORCID iD is a persistent digital numeric identifier that distinguishes a researcher from every other researcher. It remains constant through changes in name or institutional affiliation, ensuring that a person’s work is properly attributed and recognized throughout their career. To date, nearly 4 million ORCID iDs have been issued to researchers around the world, including hundreds of affiliates at Rutgers. Essentially, ORCID acts as a clearinghouse where researchers can compile and curate a record of their scholarly activity, including elements such as their funding history, affiliations, presentations, and published works. “In today’s information landscape, it is vital that researchers disambiguate themselves from others,” said Krisellen Maloney, vice president for information services and university librarian. “The idea is very simple,” added Copeland.

Open Access | Journals OUP supports Open Access Oxford University Press (OUP) is mission-driven to facilitate the widest possible dissemination of high-quality research. We embrace both green and gold open access (OA) publishing to support this mission. A proven track record of success OUP has been publishing OA content since 2004. We have also successfully launched or taken over high-quality OA titles, including: Genome Biology and Evolution, Journal of Legal Analysis, Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, and Database. OUP facilitates green OA either by allowing authors to deposit versions of their manuscripts in institutional or subject repositories after a specified time period, or depositing the version of record on their behalf. Supporting the evolution of Open Access publishing Sustainable, high-quality OA publishing requires either funding to be available to pay for Article Processing Charges, sponsorship, or suitable embargo periods. OUP operates two different open access models: OA at OUP
