Why Grit? Because we’ve lost you!
”72% of scholars
…confessed to using Google
to find scholarly literature
on the web.”
“…in June 2005 Google would account for over 56% of referrals to research articles
in HighWire journals, while PubMed Central, a renowned life sciences repository,
would account for less than 9%“
"Journals in the time of Google: while the struggle over open access plays out,
librarians, vendors, and publishers continue to trade within a market dominated by
all things electronic,” Lee C. Van Orsdel and Born Kathleen Library Journal, April 15,
2006
