CrossRef Search uses Google to provide full-text access

An article by Ed Pentz of CrossRef appears in ILDS Vol. 32 No. 3.CrossRef, a 300-member publisher trade association, has announced a pilot project called CrossRef Search that will enable users to search the full-text of scholarly journal articles, conference proceedings, and other sources from nine leading publishers. Google will supply the search technologies and CrossRef the reference links to publisher web sites. While Google will also incorporate CrossRef content connections into its general web search engine, users who go to publisher web sites and click on the CrossRef Search icon will reach just the scholarly subset. However, searching through the icon will access content from all participating publishers. Ed Pentz, executive director of CrossRef, foresees the number of participating publishers rising to 20 or 30 within a few months.
