Taylor & Francis Online Streamlines Researcher Access to Cited Articles Through GetFTR Integration
Researchers will experience streamlined access to cited articles with the addition of GetFTR (Get Full Text Research) to the references sections of Taylor & Francis journals. The integrated GetFTR indicator enables users to see at a glance which cited articles are available to read next, with smart links for direct access.
GetFTR icons signpost researchers to full text articles available through open access or their institutional library’s subscriptions. The indicator uses real-time entitlement data from all participating publishers’ sites and enables users to access cited articles with a single click.
It also supports Taylor & Francis Online’s existing toll free linking feature, which ensures site users with access to an article can read all Taylor & Francis articles it cites.
Paul Tuten, Chief Product Officer at Taylor & Francis, explained: “Journal articles don’t exist in isolation. Each one builds on previous work and references are vital for helping researchers understand and analyze the latest knowledge. Adding GetFTR to Taylor & Francis Online will strengthen those links between articles and support further discovery.”
Tuten added, “The Taylor & Francis Online platform is constantly evolving and with each update our aim is to improve the experience for researchers, making it quicker and easier for them to find, access and use the content they need.”
Taylor & Francis was one of the founding sponsors of GetFTR, an initiative which has grown to support a wide variety of publishers, discovery resources, scholarly collaboration networks, platform providers and other organizations involved in scholarly communication.
Dianne Benham, Product Director for GetFTR, said: “We welcome Taylor & Francis as the fourth Publisher to integrate GetFTR in article references, improving the researcher’s experience by signaling articles that are available through institutional subscriptions or open access, and by providing streamlined access. Researchers can be confident when seeing GetFTR indicators that they have access to the cited content.”
