Visibility, Usage and Citation for Your Society Journal

On De Gruyter’s integrated platform for eBooks, eJournals and databases you will find all De Gruyter publications in one single place.

De Gruyter Online offers permanent active linking using OpenURL and CrossRef-DOI (“Reference Linking”) as well as constant up-to-date links to all articles citing the article currently being accessed (“Forward Linking”). Not only do we provide article-level DOIs as is common practice, we also provide title-level DOIs, thus guaranteeing stable links even if a society decides to change the publishing partner.

Furthermore, content is “OpenURL compatible”, which helps to provide one more access route to your publication. This is an important prerequisite for the so-called “link resolvers”, services used by libraries to provide an easy route to the multitude of different electronic resources they subscribe to.

In the library administration tool of De Gruyter Online, librarians can download MARC records for each title in order to easily incorporate your publication into their catalogue.

We cooperate actively with abstracting and indexing services in order to disseminate all our academic content as widely as possible. The agreements in place include Thomson Reuters (ISI), CSA, Elsevier Databases and many other important gateways to scholarly information that researches make use of in their daily work.

Most of our journals have also been taken on by various aggregating services promoting the publications to libraries and other institutions for further dissemination of content and additional revenues.

Moreover, De Gruyter cooperates with Google – by far one of the most used gateways to content – and many other search engines. Google has free “crawling access” to all content on De Gruyter’s platform. That way we ensure immediate indexing and searchability of all content. In addition, we work actively with Google Scholar to have our content indexed and displayed in this high-level academic environment as well.

Content hosted on our platform is also compliant with search engines and federated search applications specifically used by academic libraries.

We also enable modern research strategies by supporting up-to-date data mining software. We work proactively with universities and libraries to allow common research tools access to our content.

De Gruyter has also digitized every historical issue from its complete journal portfolio back to volume one for its De Gruyter Journal Archive. We would be happy to discuss including your society’s journals into this venture in order to cater to libraries’ interests even more and to increase readership by making as much content available to the reader as possible.
