Primo Journal Article Recommender

When you are searching for journal articles using Primo Central, the fast article finding service, you may come across a tab that shows related articles.This function recommends articles that it thinks might be of use to you, as based on scholarly usage statistics.

To use the service, sign in to Primo, select Primo Central from the drop-down list next to the search box and click on the Recommendations tab in the search results.

The Article Recommender operates like those on commercial sites such as Amazon, which is able to provide personal book recommendations based on your search and purchase history.

In this example, opening the Primo listing of the journal article titled Economics in The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Scienceyields a list of recommended similar articles.

The data backing up these recommendations is based on the usage statistics of other Ex Libris users in different research institutions around the world.

We also have an FAQ on the subject.
