ECS Digital Library Installs New Content Discovery Feature

ECS has integrated a new feature into the ECS Digital Library to facilitate the discovery of scholarly content—both within the scope of the Society’s publications and beyond it.

How it works

The new content discovery feature uses collaborative filtering and evolving algorithms to identify and recommend scholarly content of potential interest to readers of ECS articles.

The twist? Recommended articles are not limited to those published in ECS publications.

The feature also recommends content from the world’s leading peer-reviewed journals and research news outlets across a wide breadth of academic disciplines, making it easier than ever for readers to locate the information they need to advance their research.

How it looks

To use the feature, scroll to the end of an abstract or full-text article in the ECS Digital Library.

Beneath the words “May be of interest,” you will see a two-column listing of recommended content.

The left-hand column recommends content from internal sources—ECS publications. The right-hand column recommends content from external sources—any of the hundreds of other premium scholarly sites in the service’s network.

Why it matters

For readers: The service connects you with relevant articles and developments in your area of study and across academic disciplines, enabling you to expand your knowledge base and further your research.

For authors: The feature promotes ECS content across the hundreds of other scholarly sites in the service’s network, exposing your ECS publications to a wider audience and increasing your readership.

For the Society: The service drives the organic expansion of the ECS community. The promotion of ECS content across external platforms will introduce more scholars than ever before to the rigorous, influential work being conducted by the Society’s members and constituents.

In sum, ECS’s new content discovery feature will profoundly enhance the way leading research in electrochemical and solid state science and technology is discovered and shared across disciplines.

Be sure to take advantage of this beneficial service.
