JURN’s GRAFT repository search tool updated today, with a freshly added additional list of new repository URLs. The total now stands at 4,520 repositories made searchable.
Unlike JURN, GRAFT searches across records and full-text alike. Which means… It’s Big. So it’s not much use just tapping in a few keywords and hoping for the best. It’s ideally used with relatively sophisticated search modifiers and a few seconds of pre-planning.
By the way, if you’re wondering: “why call it GRAFT”? Global Repository Access Full-Text = GRAFT.
Temporarily added to JURN, the Royal Society journals from the UK. All their journal content is free and public until 29th November 2017. JURN was previously only directly indexing their Open Science and Open Biology journals. Sadly their site appears to have gone AWOL due to the traffic surge, but doubtless it’ll be back soon.
