Lowest Cost Article
Acquisition Filtering

Article Galaxy’s cost-saving algorithms enables the identification of the most advantageous licensing option, followed by ultra-rapid access to subscription content, Open Access content, publisher pay-per-view tokens, print collection content, and previously purchased articles when sufficient rights exist.

Article Galaxy is also able to identify content with special copyright royalty rates for academic institutions and government agencies.

Self-Service, Mediated
& Hybrid Workflows

Put article acquisition on auto-pilot or maintain whichever workflow roles you desire. You can have Article Galaxy configured to accept all orders from users, check lowest cost acquisition options, and deliver all orders directly back to users – or have your staff perform one or more of those tasks yourselves. Additionally, you can choose to manage some tasks during office hours and have Article Galaxy handle them all during off hours.
