UC Merced faculty will be interested in the UC/Springer Open Access Journal Publishing Pilot announced in January 2009. This ground-breaking arrangement with Springer provides faculty with the opportunity to publish in selected Springer journals covered by the pilot. Final versions of the articles published during the two-year pilot will be available in the eScholarship Repository beginning in Fall 2009.

Databases: Research Super Tools

January 15, 2009

The UC Merced Library provides access to some 250 databases. Some of these are free databases (like Google, for example) that anyone can access with or without the Library. Some are proprietary databases (like Web of Science) which the Library licenses at costs that can reach thousands of dollars per year. These databases allow you to find and access information resources, including journal articles, that you cannot otherwise discover.
