“'s aim is to provide powerful, focused aggregation and an additional access point to the highest quality scientific research available on the Web today... [The site] will offer the most direct route to the very latest research, within hours of it appearing on the Web,” said Terry Hulbert, head of Electronic Development and Strategy at the Institute of Physics Publishing (IOP), one of the participating organizations.
