As of June 15th, the three Company of Biologists (COB) titles are now available on Highwire Press.  The new URLs for the 3 titles published by Company of Biologists are:

DEVELOPMENT [http://dev.biologists.org/ ]
JOURNAL OF CELL SCIENCE [http://jcs.biologists.org/]
JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL BIOLOGY [http://jeb.biologists.org/]

Although our subscriptions have already been activated and access to the old site will be redirected to the Highwire Press site, it is still important to change to the new URLs to avoid access problems in the future.  Now that these titles are available via Highwire Press, we have a great deal more flexibility and available data. Advantages include:

  • Full text HTML of all articles
  • Increased speed of connection owing to greater bandwidth
  • Inter-journal linking with related titles
  • Expanded cross-journal search facilities
  • Greater ease in obtaining statistical data
  • Linking at the article level for all CDL-hosted databases
  • Novel initiatives such as multi-site archiving (coming)

Any questions regarding COB titles and/or the move to Highwire Press should be directed to Barbara Schader at bschader@library.ucla.edu or 310-825-6498.
