Infotrieve Expands Content with CatchWord Agreement, Announces E-Delivery Partnerships

Infotrieve, a provider of article research and delivery, has announced an agreement with CatchWord that will provide two-way linking of content and partnership on certain cooperative activities. Infotrieve has also announced new e-delivery partnerships with publishers Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. and Institute of Physics Publishing. 

CatchWord, an independent hosting service for scholarly and academic publishers, will link the references that it maintains on behalf of its publishers to Infotrieve’s extensive free-to-search database of citations and abstracts, from which customers can select articles to purchase. Infotrieve will link to full-text articles on CatchWord’s site once a publisher agreement is in place. 

Known as “The Article Store,” Info-trieve has assembled one of the world’s largest libraries of article and journal content, a collection that’s constantly expanding through the company’s ongoing part-nerships and alliances with publishers, content producers, and hosting services such as CatchWord, according to the announcement. As part of the new agreement, Infotrieve will recommend CatchWord to publishers seeking Internet publishing services, while CatchWord will promote Infotrieve to the publishers it services. 

“With approximately 3.5 million users accessing the multidisciplinary database using Infotrieve, this agreement opens up yet another important research path to our publishers’ content,” said Chris Beckett, CatchWord’s sales and marketing director. 

“The Infotrieve database contains approximately 10 million abstracts and over 22 million citations for more than 35,000 of the most important scholarly journals,” said Jan Peterson, Infotrieve’s vice president of content development. “This agreement with CatchWord is a further example of our commitment to continually provide our customers access to the world’s published information.” 

E-Delivery Partnerships 
Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. Publishers and Institute of Physics Publishing will now have their extensive catalogs available through Infotrieve’s online access system. 

According to the announcement, these alliances are just the latest examples of Infotrieve’s commitment to provide the best online research and document delivery services. For two decades, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. has been one of the leading publishers in biotechnology, with further presence in clinical medicine and surgery, law, and science. Founded over 125 years ago, Institute of Physics Publishing is one of the largest and most respected publishers of physics information in the world with a roster of 40 journals and magazines. 

“With our emphasis on biotech, medicine, and science, our company has always embraced forward-thinking technologies,” said Tom Mulak, vice president of electronic access information for Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. “Infotrieve represents the finest example of information delivery on the Internet. It is a logical fit that will benefit end-users enormously.” 

Terry Hulbert, marketing manager for journals and electronic services at Institute of Physics Publishing, said: “Our organization has represented and disseminated the cutting edge of scientific thought for over a century. As we enter a new century, we will stay cutting edge with Infotrieve and e-delivery.” 

“Our new partnerships with Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. and Institute of Physics Publishing are a tremendous validation of the efficiency and value we promise our customers,” said Peterson. “This further expands our wealth of academic and professional publications and strengthens our commitment to be the 24-hour-a-day re-search portal for people in virtually any field, anywhere in the world.”
