Infotrieve has acquired the assets of TheScientificWorld, which went out of business last year. TSW was not an open-access publisher, but was innovative in taking advantage of the internet, for example by allowing peer-reviewed papers to appear in every relevant subject domain covered by the publisher rather than just one journal. It offered free searching of its conttents, free access to abstracts, and free current awareness alerts.
