ReadCube Research Pass (reblog)

Reblogged from ReadCube:

In collaboration with leading publishers, ReadCube is announcing the launch of an unprecedented new initiative to facilitate access to literature relevant to COVID-19 research.  The COVID-19 Research Pass (CRP) program provides direct access to over 26 million articles and is available to anyone studying or writing about COVID-19.

Early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, scholarly publishers were quick to open up access to COVID-19 literature to the greater research community. These initiatives have provided much needed and timely access to the latest publications specifically covering the COVID-19 virus.

The CRP program expands on these efforts to provide COVID-19 researchers with access to a broader set of content needed in the course of their research. Rather than pre-filtering access to specific articles related to COVID-19, the CRP allows researchers to access any article from participating publishers they may need while  studying COVID-19, including both open access and content behind paywalls. The ability to access related and prior work can be particularly helpful to researchers studying ways of improving therapies, clinical, and public health outcomes. For example, topics such as ventilators or respiratory syndromes often remain behind paywalls. Additionally, the program can support COVID-19 researchers who are now working remotely and require remote access to literature.

Initial participating publishers include the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Springer Nature, and Wiley. We look forward to welcoming additional publishers to the program and expanding the range of articles accessible to participants.

Key aspects of the program include:

Instant Full-Text Access. Pass holders can access free of charge any full-text article (or book chapter) required for use in the context of their COVID-19 research.

Flexibility. Users can search within the portal or install a web browser extension which will alert them whenever they come across content covered by the program.

Collaboration. Participants can generate temporary sharing URLs that provide read-only access (printing and downloading disabled) to the full text to anyone outside the CRP program. Here is a sample.  These links may be posted on social networking sites. Private collaboration groups are also accessible.

Text & Data Mining. Participants may apply for automated Text and Data Mining Access (TDM) to full-text content.

The program is available to researchers across corporate, government and academic labs, clinicians, and other health care providers, journalists, and policy-makers who are actively working on COVID-19 efforts.

Nature Biomedical Engineering

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Nature Biomedical Engineering

From the Nature website for the journal:

Nature Biomedical Engineering aspires to become the most prominent publishing venue in biomedical engineering by bringing together the most important advances in the discipline, enhancing their visibility by means of opinion and news articles, and providing overviews of the state of the art in each field through topic-, disease- or technology-focused review articles.

“The journal’s editorial team strives for excellence in content selection, commissioning and editing, in author and reviewer service, and in engagement with the biomedical engineering community. In particular, Nature Biomedical Engineering aims to

  • cover the full spectrum of research from the interdisciplinary discipline of biomedical engineering, inspire biomedical engineers to help solve outstanding health challenges, and effectively disseminate the successes of the discipline to the wider scientific community.
  • uphold the standards of content quality and author service expected of the Nature-branded family of journals.
  • engage with the broad biomedical engineering community, through regular editorial presence at key conferences, visits to laboratories and hospitals, and participation in social media.

“Research in biomedical engineering involves both discovery and invention. Clinical advances provide input for further improvements in methodology and for generating hypotheses to be tested in the laboratory; and conversely, the results of fundamental advances in biology, medicine, materials and physicochemical and engineering processes can lead to the development of therapy and technology that may reach the clinic. Indeed, major inventions of biomedical engineering — such as artificial joints, magnetic resonance imaging, heart pacemakers, heart–lung machines and angioplasties — are built on findings stemming from basic research and have enabled further discoveries. By publishing content that traverses field boundaries, Nature Biomedical Engineering helps to build bridges between bench researchers, clinicians and medical engineers.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2017) to present.
