Journals Now Available Online

ECU researchers now have access to several premier journals in scientific and medical research. From Cell Press comes the journal Cell, begun in 1974. Cell publishes findings of unusual significance in experimental biology, including but not limited to cell biology, molecular biology, neuroscience, immunology, virology and microbiology, cancer, human genetics, systems biology, signaling, and disease. Online access to Cell is via ScienceDirect, and extends from 1995 to the current issue.

Also available is Science magazine, with back issues to 1880, and full access to the News and Collections sections. Founded in 1848, the publisher of Science, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) serves 262 affiliated societies and academies of science, reaching 10 million individuals, making it the world’s largest association focused generally on science.

More than 150,000 articles date back to the era of the first editor of Science, Thomas A. Edison, all accessible in PDF format. Also available are Nature and 20 other Nature Publishing Group (NPG) journals through Joyner and Laupus Libraries. In addition to News@Nature, researchers may access Nature Cell Biology, Nature Chemical Biology, Nature Genetics, Nature Immunology, Nature Medicine, British Journal of Cancer, European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, International Journal of Obesity, Journal of Exposure Analysis/Environmental Epidemiology, Molecular Psychiatry, EMBO and EMBO Reports, and all of the Nature Reviews journals.
