Deep Dyve: Rental Service for Research Articles
Don't laugh! Deep Dyve has launched a rental service for research articles in science, technology, and medicine. For as little as 99 cents, you can "rent" for 24 hours one of 30 million articles in the Deep Dyve database of thousands of journals. There's a small catch ... the article cannot be printed. Deep Dyve has other options: for $9.99 a month, you can download up to 20 articles and keep them for 7 days; these cannot be printed either. However, the premium plan, which costs $19.99 a month, allows you to print and download an unlimited number of articles. This deserves some serious consideration. A 14-day free trial is available here and more information is available here.
