Descriptions: Launched in October of 2014, Paperity is the first multi-disciplinary aggregation of open-access articles and papers in the sciences. As yet, there are no frills-- no sorting, filtering, disciplines or subject headings provided for the results-- and at this writing the site lacks other features users have come to expect. In spite of these drawbacks, a well-chosen query can not only yield quite a number of good results, but can elicit interesting interdisciplinary connections. Paperity indexes only peer-reviewed, scholarly literature.
