RightPages and Science Direct:
Online Document Delivery Services Another two publishers, namely Springer-Verlag and Elsevier Science, have announced launching of online document delivery services, viz., RightPages and Science Direct respectively on Internet and other commercial and academic networks. RightPages service of Springer-Verlag will be based on 1000 journals stored in image form. Files of the journals will reside on a remote machine. Users will access the service over Internet, commercial networks (such as DIALOG, BRS, SDC, etc.) or academic networks (such as JANET). Search software will permit users to carryout retrospective searches and they will also be able to input profiles of their individual interests. They would then receive electronic mail messages when new material matching their profiles is added. Once alerted to significant articles, users will be able to access the articles over RightPages and to print them out on their own laser printers. At this point they will incur delivery fees and copyright charges. RightPages is to be based on Red Sage experimental project, presently operating at the University of California.
