If you like that you’ll love this. Research usage based recommendations for the scholarly community.

bX Recommender is a new service that generates recommendations for users based on article usage by researchers from institutions around the world. It is similar to the familiar usage-based recommendations found on commercial Web sites such as Amazon and iTunes but created specifically for the scholarly community.

Where will I find it?

Recommendations will display automatically in a box in the search results screen on OU e-Journals when you use Find it @ Oxford links in search results from resources such as Google Scholar, SCOPUS, International Bibliography of the Social Sciences or Historical Abstracts.  Please note that you will not always see recommendations in your results and that this is where recommendations may not yet exist for the article you have chosen.

Tell us what you think.

At the moment this service on is on trial and your feedback will inform our decision on whether or not we add bX Recommender to OU e-Journals on a permanent basis. Please send your comments to eresources@bodleian.ox.ac.uk
