New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : ARCTIC





From the  journal website:

ARCTIC is a peer-reviewed, primary research journal that publishes the results of scientific research from all areas of circumpolar scholarship. Original scholarly papers in the physical, social, and biological sciences, humanities, engineering, and technology are included, as are book reviews, commentaries, letters to the editor, and profiles of significant people, places, or events of northern interest.

The journal is multidisciplinary; any manuscript submitted for publication should, therefore, be of potential appeal not only to specialists but also to readers whose principal interests do not coincide directly with the subject addressed in the paper.

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from 1948 (volume 1) to present.

Access Arctic via the journal search or from the iDiscover record.

The Digital Dictionary of Buddhism [DDB] is a compilation of Chinese ideograph-based terms, texts, temple, schools, persons, etc. found in Buddhist canonical sources.

It also includes vocabulary from Neo-Confucian texts, as well as other philosophical and historical sources. Its information on individual ideographs is intended to be comprehensive, containing pronunciations and meanings from ancient and modern sources from the Sinitic cultural sphere including China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam.

OA Helper

Reposted from the CORE blog

The CORE Team is happy to inform you that  Claus Wolf, with CORE’s support, has developed the OA Helper – a  brand new application, which enables iOS users to search for scientific articles in their devices without hitting a paywall. Fascinated by Open Access and Open Source, Claus Wolf implemented CORE Discovery and CORE Recommender into this application.

Claus Wolf says: “Open Access provides a level playing field on which innovation can be built and also serves as a field for learning. Creating a tool that would support Open Access for macOS & iOS users thus seemed like a worthwhile endeavour and it turned out to be a great learning opportunity for him.” To install this application on your device, just visit the Apple Store site.
