John Wiley & Sons, Inc. has announced the launch of its latest collection of digitized journal backfiles—The Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Biophysics Backfile Collection—on its online publishing platform, Wiley InterScience. Spanning more than fifty years of content across fifteen journal titles, the collection is intended to provide a backfile resource for core research across the biotechnology, biochemistry, biophysics, and chemical engineering disciplines, and includes full coverage, back to inaugural issues of titles, including Biotechnology and Bioengineering, Proteins, Biopolymers, the AIChE Journal, Chemie Ingenieur Technik, and Chemical Engineering & Technology.
The backfile collection is presented in a searchable PDF format, with abstracts, essential bibliographic content, and literature citations available in HTML. Reference links include internal linking to cited content located on Wiley InterScience and to the content of scientific, technical, and medical publishers via CrossRef.
The Wiley InterScience Biotechnology, Biochemistry, and Biophysics Backfile Collection is the latest addition to a collection of journal backfile content, created in an effort to ensure ongoing access to research material in the research communities' format of choice. An ongoing initiative, Wiley InterScience expects to release four additional Backfile Collections over the course of 2004: the Chemistry Backfile Collection, Analytical Chemistry Backfile Collection, Neuroscience Backfile Collection, and the Materials Science Backfile Collection.
