Finding Pearls

The OAIster project is after my heart. How often have you been prompted to pay $30 to read an article found on Google Scholar search? Or been frustated by lack of access to the JSTOR database? Not here. We're talking about free materials. Quality materials. No sifting. Free access. Free. Free. Free.

Take everything you like about Highwire or the SSRN. But cut out the crap. And you have OAIster. To top it off, the search is excellent, allowing you to choose media type (audio, video, etc.) and the sorting of results. Even more features are on the way. This is how it should be.

The description of the project makes me curious but the link is not working. I hope it will come back soon.

Is anyone else having problems with this? The link is working for me.

Sometimes our load balancing messes up our aliases, and sometimes DNS servers are out of date. Try a different computer and/or a different day and/or talk to your sysadmin about updating the DNS tables.

Read our press release on topping 10 million records. Press release.
Also we have a new design as of yesterday!
