The Web site http://projecteuclid.org first went live eight years ago. That first month, August 2001, Euclid held content from 6 journals, with 126 articles total. Today there are over 60 journal titles -- from the United States, Japan, Europe, Brazil, and Iran -- and the system holds 105,960 articles, 159 monographs, and over 1.39 million pages.
Project Euclid, jointly managed by Cornell University Library and Duke University Press, provides affordable access to high-impact, peer-reviewed mathematics and statistics journals, monographs, and conference proceedings. Its mission is to advance scholarly communication by addressing the unique needs of independent and society publishers. By forming mutually beneficial partnerships between these publishers and the global library community, Project Euclid strengthens and encourages scholarly communications as well as cultivates nontraditional publishing models. Through a combination of support by subscribing libraries and participating publishers, Project Euclid is able to make 70% of its journal articles available without any access restrictions.
