Electronic journals portals on the WWW:
ASM, Blackwell, Ebsco, Elsevier

This page links to the integrated services of several major publishers/intermediaries giving access to extensive sets of electronic journals - while using the same interface and offering a number of value-added features. These services may incorporate thousands of journals, but the degree of functionality (e.g. access to the full-text articles) is obviously limited by the individual or institutional customer's electronic journal subscriptions. The ITG library (partially) subscribes to the following services:

1. ASM - American Society for Microbiology Journals

2. Blackwell Science - Synergy

3. EbscoHost Biomedical Reference Collection

4. EbscoHost Electronic Journals Service

5. Elsevier ScienceDirect Web Editions


1. ASM - American Society for Microbiology Journals

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) offers access to the full-text electronic editions of its 11 journals. This includes the most recent issues, and backfiles generally go back to 1995. As this site-licence is IP-based, no usernames or passwords are needed from within ITG.

To get more information on the concept and workings of ASM journals, use the help module of the site.

3. EbscoHost Biomedical Reference Collection

EbscoHost Biomedical Reference Collection (corporate edition) gives access to a vast collection of some 1000 biomedical electronic journal editions. Limitation: often the most recent 3 to 12 months are embargoed - and thus not available.
