NEWS: (14/10/08) BMJ Journals Online Archive
BMJ Journals are pleased to announce that the online archive of five of its specialist titles is now available, hosted by Stanford University's HighWire Press.
The complete back archives of Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, Journal of Clinical Pathology, British Journal of Ophthalmology, Heart, and Gut, have now been released, right back to Volume 1, Issue 1.  All content older than 12 months is freely available to subscribers and registered users.
Release of these archives is part of a phased programme by the BMJ Group to make the content of all the BMJ Group's specialist medical titles available online. The remaining titles, covering over 3000 issues, will follow over the coming months.  One-time registration will allow non-subscribers to access all of this valuable content. (Recent content - less than 12 months old - is available only to subscribers).
