DeepDyve

Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a service that rents academic articles for a short one-day period. At 99 cents a pop, this represents significantly lower hit than the $35 or $40 charged by academic journals to 'purchase' articles. As you can see here, the articles are displayed in Flash, which makes them difficult to copy. DeepDyve has gotten some press from the Chronicle this week, which now lends it's support in highlighting (and presumably stamping out) academic article piracy. There's a free trial of an unlimited $19.99 per month plan, but don't bother unless you know you want to subscribe - they'll ask you for charge card information.
