Over one-third of Maney journals in materials science and engineering, health sciences, and humanities now have full archives available online following an extensive programme of retrodigitisation.
The digital archives feature up to eighty years of journal content, and in total just over 1500 issues of archival material are available electronically from 2010, in addition to the 400 back issues that went online in 2009. To encourage further readership of the archives, there is a significantly reduced pay-per-view price for all content published before 2000. This is a major development for Maney Publishing, providing extra research material across a wide variety of subject areas through the decades.
The project began in 2009 in conjunction with Hollingworth & Moss, who have been responsible for scanning all the hard copy archive issues, and Publishing Technology. The journals are hosted by IngentaConnect, the online platform for Maney journals, and the archives are available for institutional subscribers and certain society member subscribers alongside current journal content. The archives will also be included in CrossRef, enabling interactive linking to and from cited references.
The archives are included in the MORE (Maney Online Research E-journal) Collections – packages of online journals available as the full or subject-specific collections. For details visit www.maney.co.uk/more. A current year’s subscription to any journal with an extended archive includes access to the full range of content.
