ProQuest scholarly content now discoverable in Google Scholar

The full text of ProQuest scholarly content – including journals and working papers – is now indexed in Google Scholar, enabling Google Scholar users to seamlessly discover and access ProQuest collections. Efficiency and productivity for both ProQuest and Google Scholar users is improved, while libraries benefit from increased usage for their subscribed collections.   

'ProQuest aims to continually empower researchers to be more productive and successful,' said Kurt Sanford, ProQuest CEO. 'That means removing obstacles between them and the content that helps them achieve their research goal. This collaboration is an important step in streamlining the workflow of these researchers.'

The collaboration between Google and ProQuest enables authenticated ProQuest users to be recognised at the ProQuest platform after they search using Google Scholar and connects them to full-text scholarly content in their libraries’ collections.

Users who are not recognised are sent to a landing page with the abstract or an image of the first page, protecting all rights holders. To read full text, the users authenticate themselves using their library credentials. There is nothing for libraries to set up – the linking is seamless and automatic, says ProQuest.
