The library has subscribed to Science Translational Medicine and Science Signaling. We have done this even though we continue to have concerns regarding AAAS’s pricing policies (see http://www.cdlib.org/services/collections/current/challenges.html)
In the near future links to these journals will be added to Harvest and to the Electronic Journals A-Z list. The direct URL’s are listed below.
Science Translational Medicine
from Science Translational Medicine’s mission statement:
The focus of Science Translational Medicine is original, peer-reviewed, science-based research that successfully advances clinical medicine toward the goal of improving patients’ lives. The editors and an international advisory group of scientists and clinician-scientists as well as other experts will hold Science Translational Medicine articles to the same high-quality standard that is the hallmark of the journal Science.
Examples of content in Science Translational Medicine:
- Research and commentary on models of human disease with significant implications for disease treatment
- Investigative studies of human biology with an emphasis on disease, including small clinical trials
- Perspectives and Reviews on research topics that discuss the implications of the findings from a basic science and a clinical point of view
- Survey of recent significant findings from other publications (Editor’s Choice)
- Commentary on policy, funding, and regulatory issues
- Special issues that feature comprehensive reviews and analyses of current topics in translational medicine
from Science Signaling’s Goals and Features page:
Science Signaling is a weekly journal, publishing 51 issues a year, as well as an online resource and information management tool that enables experts and novices in cell signaling to find, organize, and utilize information relevant to processes of cellular regulation. The overarching goal of Science Signaling is to identify and develop a mix of tools and approaches (algorithms, schemas, programs, and human organizational structures) that are stable, scalable, interoperable, and cost effective for providing access to information on cell signaling. All aspects of Science Signaling are designed to facilitate the site’s main purpose, which is to maximize the efficiency with which the reader gathers, assimilates, and understands information about cell regulatory processes. We strive to increase the likelihood of the scientist making new connections between facts from discrete sources, and to support educational, collaborative, and community-building efforts. An additional goal of the site is to provide a database of cell signaling information with information supplied by scientific experts, as well as to develop the tools and organizational structures needed to undertake this project and present the results for both human readers and computer-based analysis.
