REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and OXFORD, United Kingdom (PRWEB) March 12, 2018
DeepDyve and Oxford University Press today announced that Oxford University Press (OUP) has agreed to make over 400 journals available via DeepDyve's innovative scholarly journal rental platform. The collaboration follows a successful pilot program dating back to 2012 whereby OUP made a subset of its titles available via DeepDyve.
"We're pleased to continue to offer journal articles through a rental model," said Casper Grathwohl, Director of Global Business Development at Oxford University Press. "Making content available at an affordable price point provides end users with a copyright-compliant alternative to piracy."
DeepDyve - which markets its service to researchers unaffiliated with an academic library - offers its users affordable, flexible access to the most sought-after, peer-reviewed content currently available. The addition of OUP's considerable collection further cements DeepDyve's position as the leading online rental service for scholarly content.
"OUP shares our commitment to explore new and innovative ways to reach customers on their terms," said William Park, DeepDyve's CEO. "We are pleased that our successful pilot paved the way for a more permanent arrangement whereby OUP can find new customers via the DeepDyve platform."
