Oxford Journals announced that it has signed an agreement with the Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (ISTIC), enabling thousands of Chinese researchers to access archival content dating back to 1849 for over 150 journals. ISTIC, which is part of the Ministry of Science & Technology of China, represents the National Science and Technology Library (NSTL), whose members include major national level libraries and information research institutions in China.
