New Resources Available
a. American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Journals
AACR is the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world focused on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research.
AACR publishes five peer-reviewed scientific journals: Cancer Research; Clinical Cancer Research; Molecular Cancer Therapeutics; Molecular Cancer Research (formerly Cell Growth & Differentiation); and Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. Complete archives are available for the titles, including issues back to 1949 for Cancer Research available in 2006.
The AACR systemwide license began as a Tier 2 with the health sciences bibliographers. When it became apparent that the collection was considered a core resource in basic sciences, it was endorsed by JSC as a Tier 1 and approved by CDC for participation by all campuses except Riverside. The AACR journals are available on HighWire.
b. New Premium Collection in Project MUSE
Project MUSE has launched a Premium Collection with 40 new titles in the social sciences and humanities, including publications from the Edinburgh University Press, Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, and University of Toronto Press. Nine UC campuses approved an upgrade to the CDL license (excluding UCSF) and now have access to the new content as well as 285 other titles. The systemwide license was formerly through AMIGOS and CSU, but is now managed by the CDL directly with Project MUSE.
