Find research faster, especially if you’ve paid to read it

Clarivate Analytics (what was the Thomson Reuters IP operation, including Web of Science) has bought AI start-up, Kopernio, “to create the definitive publisher-neutral platform for research workflow and analysis for scientific researchers, publishers and institutions.”

It’s another example of the research publishing establishment providing value-adding that props up the existing pay-to-access model. Kopernio will use AI “to enable users to seamlessly access journal articles with just one-click.” But only,  in the first instance to journals they have paid access to. However, if they don’t it will, “suggest free, alternative legal versions of the content that might already exist on openly available platforms.” “Might” may well be the word that matters most.
