DeepDyve’s iTunes Business Model October 27, 2009

Posted by Andre Vellino in Digital library, Information retrieval, Search.

deepdyveDeepDyve appears to have adopted an iTunes-like buisness model ….$0.99 rentals for scientific research articles!

I like many things about the search engine – the way one can enter entire paragraphs of text as a query block, for instance.  You can use that feature in PLoSONE (Public Library of Science), though it is not obviously available on the DeepDyve site itself.

I don’t think that knowledge can be commodified in this way, though. It doesn’t look like it is going to be sustainable business model.
