“ Cambridge Journals open access to online content published during 2009 and 2010 – 18 Jul 2011
Cambridge Journals, a division of Cambridge University Press (CUP), UK, is celebrating recent achievements by making all its online journals content from 2009 and 2010 free for six weeks.
Cambridge has enjoyed accelerating success in recent years with increasing numbers of journals published, improved impact factors and multiple enhancements made to Cambridge Journals Online (CJO). Usage has significantly increased with the digitisation of new and archive content, and more people are now able to access Cambridge Journals than before. Currently over 1.3 million articles are downloaded from CJO every month.
To celebrate these successes, and to reach out to new customers, Cambridge Journals has announced that it is making all online content published during 2009 and 2010 free between July 15 and August 30, 2011.
During the trial, the Cambridge Journals team will also be looking for feedback to help shape the future of the service. The CJO website is continually developing, informed by consultation with key customers in the academic and library communities. Users will be encouraged to give their feedback on CJO and content, to ensure the service keeps on developing according to their needs.”
