Nature has made research articles in all of its journals free to read without a subscription. Articles, however, cannot be downloaded or printed without a subscription or purchase. Nature also permits subscribers of its journals to create links to accessible full-text for sharing purposes. Additionally, Nature will allow journalists to post links to full-text articles. This change is considered a move toward increased open access. For more information, please read an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education and from Nature.
The library’s subscription to the Chronicle of Higher Education has been modified to no longer require a special username and password. This new institutional subscription allows seamless access on-campus and the customary UNMC authentication from off-campus. Links to the Chronicle can be located on the library’s home page through the catalog or online journals database.
The library is pleased to announce that it is now able to subscribe to the complete library of Springer Journal titles. By joining the LYRASIS consortium, a group of libraries working together to find better pricing through group negotiation, McGoogan is now able to enter into this offer. Currently the library subscribes to 15 Springer titles. This journal package contains over 1700 titles. A full title list and description of the package deal can be viewed here.
The journals will be accessible through the library home page by searching in the catalog for a journal title or by searching under the ‘online journals’ tab.
