Open Access Journal Article Search – Connect the Dots

Join the dots between the huge number of high-quality open access articles

Using this managed open access journal article search library, you can search and reference approx. 8 million articles.

Why use Open Access Journal Article Search Data?

Take, for example, a Noggle search request that is using text mining to discover new articles related to the key topics of your document. Text mining is an analysis technique that involves using a computer to scan thousands of relevant articles at once to “mine’” the facts and data within them and discover connections. By using this type of cutting-edge technology that can speed-read data on a large scale, researchers found out more about the biomarkers that help early diagnosis of the alzheimer disease.

Academics argue there are links waiting to be discovered that could help us tackle the most pressing questions facing society, in areas ranging from healthcare to the humanities. Today, Noggle brings this kind of technology right to your own desktop. You are able to let noggle recommend articles in the open access space based on your private documents. This is like fast-reading 8 million documents and cross-linking them with your own content. (See this technique in action on the TED content: LINK)

The Quality of Open Access Content

As early as 2004, Thomson Scientific found that in every field of the sciences “there was at least one open access title that ranked at or near the top of its field” in citation impact. Of course the number of high-quality and high-impact open access journals has only grown since then. It’s not surprising that open access journals can be first-rate: the quality of a scholarly journal is a function of its authors, editors, and referees, not its business model or access policy.

To search for keywords in open access library, just enter your keywords in the search box. So, a search with [cloud “information security”] would look for “cloud” or “information security” in the article database.

Noggle uses different Open Access database providers

We use different sources for our managed open access search. Two prominent examples are the Directory of Open Access Journals and the Spinger OpenAccess database. Our automatic database aggregation technique supports your individual open access journal article search from the desktop application.

Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)
DOAJ is a community-curated online directory that indexes and provides access to high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals. The Directory aims to be comprehensive and cover all open access academic journals that use an appropriate quality control system. The Directory aims to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access academic journals—regardless of size and country of origin—thereby promoting their visibility, usage and impact.

The data in DOAJ is licensed to you under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License (CC BY-SA).

Springer Open Access
Provides metadata and full-text content for more than 370,000 online documents from Springer open access. Including BioMed Central and SpringerOpen journals.

Why Explore Patent Data?

Our noggle managed patent library inspires the exploration and enhanced understanding of intellectual property (IP). Together with their private noggle libraries, it allows to discover and visualize trends and patterns across the innovation landscape. As a result, we hope researchers and developers alike will explore and identify related knowledge.

What you will be doing with the patent search tool, at least in the first instance, is a keyword search. However, it is essential to try a variety of different keywords in your search. Once you stumble on the proper keyword combination the doorway starts to open to explore in combination with our cognitive clustering tool.

However, to do a competent patent search you must do more: For example, once you receive manageable results you need to read the patents and see which ones are relevant. So, always remember to try various search terms to make sure you are covering all possible descriptions of the invention. Along the way, as you read the patents and identify related ones, keep track of the numbers and identify the US classification that relates to the type of invention you are searching. Finally, upon identifying several US classifications that seem to relate to your invention, you can open the Advanced Search Page and do a classification search.

To search for keywords in patent library, just enter your keywords in the search box. So, a search with [cloud “information security”] would look for “cloud” and “information security” in the patent abstract.
