Understanding what motivates and drives an organization is an important part of deciding whether or not you wish to have a relationship with them. With that goal in mind, here’s a quick rundown of what makes us tick!
We’re DeepDyve, based in sunny California – Redwood City to be exact. For the past five years or so, we’ve been working hard to deliver on our mission:
“To develop innovative technology to empower the discovery & access of authoritative research”.
We make good on this promise by providing those who are not affiliated to large libraries at universities and companies with affordable access to over 10 million research articles from more than 10,000 leading academic publishers.
DeepDyve subscriptions cost just $40 per month for all “you can read”, we’ve also negotiated some printing rights plus the ability to download the content for 20% off. To help users evaluate our offering, we provide two week free trials.
Over the years we’ve made every effort to grow the range of otherwise “closed” content that we offer as a service to those who need access to this knowledge.
During this time we’ve also witnessed the strong growth of Open Access which provides users everywhere with the right to read, download, share and most importantly, in many but not all cases, re-use research. All this is available without publisher permission, simply by crediting the author/s and the source of the literature.
In terms of access to knowledge, much has improved since we first started but we acknowledge that there’s still a long way to go. We’re happy to play our part in this evolving market and want to take this opportunity to thank our existing subscribers.
