Introducing the Gadget Store - The Fastest Way to Improve Your Research

Posted by: Mitja-Alexander Linss

At Reprints Desk, we know how much stamina it takes to be a scientific researcher. To make meaningful, timely discoveries, researchers need fast access to scholarly content. And as any researcher knows, that’s easier said than done. 

Indeed, with tens of millions of research papers published online, finding the most relevant information in science, technology, and medicine (STM) can take an inordinate amount of time. Once you find the content you want, you still need to figure out the best, most cost-effective way to access it. Most importantly, you need to be able to convert the information you find into useful knowledge. 

That’s where the Article Galaxy Gadget Store comes in.

More than 70 percent of the world’s life sciences companies rely on Reprints Desk’s Article Galaxy platform for easy literature access and discovery.  Now, we launched the Gadget Store to make Article Galaxy’s research engine available to individual researchers and scientists, helping them to improve discovery and save time.

How does it work?   It's simple: browse a growing library of 100+ science appsor Gadgets. Similar to consumer apps, they are designed for research and scientific experimentation. They are task-specific and easy-to-use, and run on your desktop or mobile web browser. Gadget categories include search and discovery; on-demand literature access; workflow and productivity; lab and visualization; biomedical research; and journal table-of-contents feeds. Easily add Gadgets to your personal Article Galaxy dashboard and move them to any position on the screen. Watch the video tutorial.

Transforming Discovery with Personalized Research
As technology continues to advance, we are seeing the emergence of exciting new tools researchers can use to tailor workflows to their specific research needs. Personalized research is a promising new trend in the scientific research realm, with the power to transform the way scientists and researchers access, and interact with, STM content and data. Rather than simply presenting information, personalized access tools let researchers make the best of available content by pinpointing what’s important. In short, they help make the data researchers care about more useful.
