Project MUSE Partners with ReadCube to Enhance Discoverability of its Journals Collection

Project MUSE, leading scholarly provider of digital humanities and social science content, announces their partnership with Boston-based publishing technology company ReadCube to index their 626 scholarly journals with ReadCube’s Discover service. The indexed collection is not only searchable across ReadCube’s web, desktop, and mobile reading portals but also included in ReadCube’s search engines, related article feeds and popular recommendation engine.

“Our mission is to ensure that our collection is discoverable and easily available to readers worldwide,” said Wendy Queen, Director of Project MUSE. “At the same time, we look to offer our readers the best possible reading experience. This exciting collaboration with ReadCube supports both these objectives.”

In addition to deep-indexing, when read within any of the free ReadCube apps, articles will be available with ReadCube’s popular enhanced reading features. These include hyperlinked in-line citations, annotations, clickable author names, instant access to supplemental content and figures, social sharing, and altmetrics.

“We look forward to working with Project MUSE and bringing their collection to our discovery tools,” said Robert McGrath, CEO of Labtiva. “Together, we’re making it easier for researchers to find and access the latest literature across the humanities and social science.”
