HighWire Press has a new look. In September 2005, Stanford University released a new edition of its popular Web-based medical literature search engine. HighWire Press claims that it “hosts the largest repository of free, full-text, peer-reviewed content” and is without pop-ups or advertising.
Since 1995, HighWire Press has been available as a useful alternative to PubMed. Since its initial release, use of HighWire Press has skyrocketed. HighWire Press currently provides access to more than 1 000 000 free full-text science articles from 876 HighWire-hosted journals. In addition, HighWire Press provides seamless access to PubMed’s 15 million articles from more than 4500 journals.
