Integration Lets Corporate Researchers Quickly Find and Obtain Relevant Journal Articles, Sourced From 140 Scholarly Databases, All From a Single Interface

ENCINO, Calif. and LONDON, UK, September 3, 2020Research Solutions/Reprints Desk (NASDAQ: RSSS), a pioneer in providing cloud-based workflow solutions for R&D driven organizations, today announced the integration of their document retrieval solution Article Galaxy with the Dialog search platform from Dialog Solutions (a division of ProQuest). Customers of both Article Galaxy and Dialog can now search a wide range of content databases through Dialog and instantly access full-text, copyright-compliant journal articles at the lowest possible cost. The integration reduces time needed for discovery and access to just a few seconds, and helps organizations save costs.

“Research Solutions and Dialog Solutions share a common goal – we want to make it quicker and easier for people to find the research they need,” said Michael Rai, General Manager of Dialog Solutions. “Integrating Dialog with Article Galaxy is a natural extension of this philosophy, and we hope we’ll be able to transform how our customers find and access full-text articles.”

“The integration was designed with user friendliness in mind: it makes it easy and convenient for Dialog users to order single or multiple articles right from their search results within Dialog,” added Chris Atwood, Director of Engineering and Implementations at Research Solutions.

The Dialog platform allows researchers in pharmaceutical, biomedical and other R&D-driven corporations to search for peer-reviewed content across more than 140 scholarly databases, using precision search functionality and duplicate removal to provide relevant results quickly. Search results cover:

  • 3 billion authoritative records
  • 20 million pages of newspapers
