(24/7/07):  From 31 December 2007, new JSTOR subscribers to Health & General Sciences collection will not have any access to Science, while current JSTOR subscribers will have access to the archive up to 2002.  No new content will be added to the Science collectiion.
NEWS (15/11/06): In January 2006, AAAS/Science Online announced that the SAGE KE, Science of Aging Knowledge Environment (ISSN 1539-6150) would cease publishing new content on the site. The last issue containing new content was Vol. 2006 (#10) on June 28, 2006.
     We are pleased to announce that all of the back content is now available free of charge to AAAS members and to Science Online site license users who register and select a personal username and password. We ask librarians to encourage their patrons to register individually to access the Science of Aging Knowledge Environment Archive Site. Please remind your patrons that user name and password may not be shared with others.
      Librarians should not register for free SAGE KE access using the same e-mail address or account number that is associated with their Science Online site license. Doing this will cause their institutional access to be stopped.
