Reference Linking in JSTOR 

Yesterday, JSTOR announced its official release of reference linking functionality. Reference linking enables JSTOR users to follow a link from a reference in an article directly to the cited article. (A feature should be familiar for the open Web users). At this time, the reference linking capability is internal – links are currently available only between journals archived in JSTOR. Approximately 18,000 links are currently available from a small number of journals, and JSTOR expects to complete retrospective reference capture for all current holdings in 2007.

Google (not surprising!) is the first search engine company that signed a license agreement with JSTOR and is allowed to crawl and index the scholarly literature in the archive. The crawl site contains the full-text or optical character recognition (OCR) files for the majority of journals participating in JSTOR. More than 2 million of the full-length articles and book reviews archived by JSTOR are searchable in both Google and Google Scholar.

This will only become a significant feature if/when JSTOR discovers that human knowledge is not a commodity, and opens its vaults to the public.
