Usually, it goes something like this: There is a towering iceberg and the deeper the underwater portion extends, the more “hidden” and “exotic” the content is described to be. Sometimes these images are accurate to a point, but most are just making things up. So what exactly is 'deep web' then?

UK’s open access full-text search engine to aid research Open access research is now more accessible as Jisc has developed a new search engine to help academics, students and the general public navigate papers held in the UK’s open access repositories. Jisc has funded the Open University’s Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) to create an innovative new search facility which searches not just the abstract but the full text of the article.
