Pubget Corp is a wholly owned subsidiary of Copyright Clearance Center that develops cloud-based search and content access tools for scientists. It provides advertising services, enterprise search services, and a public search engine. The company was founded in 2007 by Beth Israel Hospital clinical pathologist, Ramy Arnaout, out of his own need to find papers. Pubget moved its headquarters from Cambridge, Massachusetts to Boston's Innovation District in 2011.
Pubget.com is a free service for non-profit institutions and their libraries and researchers. The site provides direct access to full-text content from 450 libraries around the world. It was announced in January 2012 that Pubget was acquired by Copyright Clearance Center.
Pubget's search engine retrieves article citations and full text PDFs from PubMed, ArXiv, Karger, American Society for Microbiology, IEEE, RSS feeds, XML from publishers, and Open Archive sources. The company's search engine contains over 28 million scientific documents and adds 10,000 papers each day. Pubget creates a link directly from the article citation to the paper itself via a continuously updated database of links. Because of this database, users are directly linked from a citation to the full-text paper.
Access to closed full-text PDFs is granted through the institution's subscriptions. Pubget does not bypass copyright laws and will display only the abstract of restricted papers if the end user does not have institutional access.
Pubget PaperStats is a usage and spend analysis tool for libraries. PaperStats automatically harvests serials usage statistics delivering consolidated usage, cost, and other reports directly from publishers. Content performance can be assessed through cost-per-view analysis. Upon introduction, PaperStats was beta tested with the USC Norris Medical Library and yielded positive results for Pubget, USC and the library community.
The Pubget PaperStore provides Pubget.com users the option of purchasing full text papers from thousands of journals on the search engine results page. Content rights and delivery is provided by document delivery vendor, Reprints Desk.
Pubget provides several advertising solutions. Customers include Bio-Rad, Agilent, and other scientific brands. Ads are matched with paper content via contextual targeting. For example, manufacturers of a piece of scientific equipment will pay to advertise alongside a paper that mentions using said product. Pubget, however, does not reveal data on individual users and their searches.
PaperStream is a web app that allows lab teams to share, store, and find documents all in one place. PaperStream organizes companies' subscriptions, purchased papers, and internal documents into an automated library database.
