Zendy - a new OA content platform

A new platform has been created to facilitate access to a wide array of open access academic literature.

Zendy has been developed by Knowledge E as part of a growing collaboration between academic researchers, students, institutions and publishers, and currently indexes over 20,000 journals and 100 million open access source items.

The results extend beyond immediate academic documents such as journal articles, books, dissertations, conference materials and reports, to include video and audio media, news items and more, though it also includes a filter for 'peer reviewed' content and the ability to add several line3s of search terms to refine results.

The platform is currently in beta, and looks like a useful tool to add to the open access toolkit.
