Highwire: A Favorite Information Site

HighWire at is one of my favorite research and information sites, especially since Scirus, an old favorite having a very broad subject scope at, is set to retire at the end of this month, January, 2014!

HighWire has some very useful features including dates when articles in medical journals become free. HighWire enables table of content (TOC) alerts and keeps me up to date on free trials, free titles, free back issues, and pay-per-view options.

If you are a researcher, librarian, or publisher and have not checked out HighWire lately, it is worth taking a look at its huge epublishing platform.

"About HighWire" at says:

"Located in Palo Alto, California, HighWire is a division of the Stanford University Libraries. Founded in 1995, with the launch of the Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC Online). Science, the Journal of Neuroscience, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS) soon joined with HighWire to become pioneers who defined today's online journal."
