ABOUT THE COMMERCIAL DIGEST Since June 2008, the SERIALST moderators have been distributing a Commercial Digest once a week, on Friday afternoons, with messages containing informational content from commercial bodies (i.e., publishers, vendors, agents, etc.). The moderators review submitted messages for informational content that may interest our subscribers. We reserve the right to reject messages that are purely for advertising or product/service solicitation, with little or no informational content beyond the solicitation, as well as other content that are not within the scope and purpose guidelines of SERIALST: http://www.uvm.edu/~bmaclenn/serialst.html If you have thoughts or feedback about the Commercial digest, or other aspects of SERIALST, please let us hear from you. Contact information for the SERIALST moderators is at: http://www.uvm.edu/~bmaclenn/serialst.html#contacts This week's digest contains 2 messages: 1) Oxford Journals migrate content to new HighWire platform 2) New online materials adds to over a century of research --------------- Message #1: Subject: Oxford Journals migrate content to new HighWire platform From: "MEDDINGS, Colin" <email@example.com> Date: Mon, 22 Feb 2010 11:52:01 +0000 - with apologies for cross-posting - Oxford Journals migrate content to new HighWire platform Oxford Journals has begun migrating online content to a new platform powered by HighWire Press's H2O web technologies. Designed around state-of-the-art standards based technologies, the move enables us to respond to the increased pace of online publishing development that our customers require. Twelve journals have already been successfully transferred as part of a pilot. In the week beginning 22 February we will be migrating another small selection of our journals. Further changeovers are planned for later in the year with the whole process due to be complete by the end of 2010. Our library customers do not need to take any action, and there will be no changes to library-facing services such as access control, usage statistics, and admin accounts. Full mapping of URLs that may change has been implemented as part of the migration. Most of the changes involve behind the scenes technology and will not be visible to users. As part of the upgrade there will be some enhancements to how articles are displayed including a cleaner and more readable page layout, improvements to image display, and easier navigation. Should you notice any issues during the migration please contact our customer services department directly: http://oxfordjournals.org/contact_us.html Kind regards Colin Meddings Senior Library Marketing Manager Oxford Journals | Oxford University Press Great Clarendon Street Oxford, OX2 6DP firstname.lastname@example.org www.oxfordjournals.org ------------------ Message #2: Subject: New online materials adds to over a century of research From: Susan Soule <email@example.com> Date: Mon, 22 Feb 2010 10:55:49 -0500 With apologies for cross-posting Cambridge Journals Press Release Release Date: 16/02/2010 Country of Issue: United Kingdom Cambridge Journals has completed the 2009 Collection of its Digital Archives, adding to over a century of digitised research material. Over 3.3 million pages are now available in the 2009 Collection, the vast majority of which have never been available online before. The 2009 archive collection now includes content from journals such as Behavioral and Brain Sciences, British Journal of Political Science, The International Review of the Red Cross and the Journal of Fluid Mechanics. During digitisation it was also discovered that many journals had previous versions and wherever possible, these have now been digitised as well. The International Review of the Red Cross now has three complete archives - in English, French and Spanish, all from different periods in its existence. The process of digitising the 2010 Collection is already well underway. Highlights will include the archive of Archaeologia, which dates back to 1770 and is associated with The Antiquaries Journal, and the archive of another highly rated historical title Speculum, which dates back to 1926. The Cambridge Journals Digital Archive is available in its entirety, as a package of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) archives, as a package of Science, Technology and Medicine (STM) archives, or in subject based packages.
