American Chemical Society (ACS) has begun a major mobile-oriented initiative for its publications:

Mobile Table of Contents (TOC)

The goal of this beta project is to create the most useful and enjoyable mobile experience possible. Specifically, this project focuses on browsing Tables of Contents.

Mobile Article

The goal of this beta project is to create the most useful and enjoyable mobile experience possible. Specifically, this project focuses on formatting an article for viewing on a mobile device.

Supported Devices

All mobile devices with a web browser should be able to view both the Mobile TOC and the Mobile Article, but the full functionality of the Mobile TOC is limited to more modern mobile web browsers that have JavaScript turned on.

It started with JACS (Journal of the Amer Chem Soc) Beta.

The ICWDM is pleased to announce that all the published Proceedings of the Bird Control Seminars held in Bowling Green, Ohio are now available, in searchable form, through the Internet Center for Wildlife Damage portion of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Library Digital Commons. http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/icwdmbirdcontrol/  This is the first time that all 7 proceedings are available both digitally and in searchable form. The Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management hopes that these publications will enable researchers and practitioners to learn more about responsibly mitigating damage caused by bird species. Those wishing to learn more about wildlife damage management are welcome to visit http://icwdm.org

(from STS-l listserv) 

Now through the end of 2006, the Electrochemical Society (ECS) is
pleased to provide institutional subscribers with free trial access to
the online archives of both the Journal of The Electrochemical Society
(JES)
and Electrochemical and Solid State Letters (ESL). Subscribers
will be notified regarding the activation of access to this additional
content from JES (www.ecsdl.org/JES) and ESL (www.ecsdl.org/ESL).

The JES online archive is now accessible back to 1975, and ECS plans to
make the complete archive available beginning with the first volume in
1902. Articles from ESL are available going back to the publication's
launch in mid-1998. Articles will be available as full-text PDFs, and
all online back issues offer HTML-formatted tables of contents, abstract
pages, and searchable database records.

(Note: College of Charleston Libraries don't have a current subscription of Electrochemical and Solid State Letters (ESL).)

Chinese science journals given global reach, available online via Elsevier’s ScienceDirect Wednesday, 5 April 2006 11:00 pm

Research published in 34 Chinese science journals is being made available to an international audience for the first time, under a scheme launched on last Monday (27 March).

Elsevier, a major player in academic publishing, will provide access to the English-language journals through its online database ScienceDirect for free in 2006. But the service will be subscription-only from 2007.

The first 34 journals being made available include Agricultural Sciences in China, Acta Genetica Sinica, and the Journal of the Chinese Medical Association.

In addition, Elsevier has agreed to publish English translations of important papers that are published in six Chinese-language science journal

The concern is that the researchers in some small Chinese institutions will not be able to afford to pay the subscription fees for ScienceDirect or other international online databases.

The Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry (BJOC) is now included in PubMed Central (www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov), the world's largest digital archive of freely available full-text journal literature. PubMed Central hosts over 200 journals, mainly in the life sciences and medicine.

BJOC is one of the first chemistry journals to be accepted for inclusion in the database, which will bring its articles to the attention of an enormous worldwide readership of biomedical scientists (with an interest in organic chemistry and chemical biology). As one of the first open access journals in chemistry, BJOC allows readers free access to all content immediately upon publication. BJOC has no publication charges, is fully refereed and offers rapid publication.

BJOC is published by the Beilstein-Institut, the owner and producer of Beilstein Database, in co-operation with BioMed Central, the leading global publisher of open access journals.
