JANUARY 14, 2010 – Sunnyvale, CALIF — DeepDyve and CiteULike announced today that the companies are collaborating to deliver a superior way to easily and affordably share and read scholarly information on the Internet.

“Our community is made up of researchers, knowledge workers and lifelong learners who are always looking for ways to access information more easily,” said Kevin Emamy of CiteULike. “CiteULike enables the management and discovery of highly relevant scholarly papers, but our users often struggle to find the full text of these articles on the web.
