Newsworthy updates to our e-resources

Times Higher Education update

Following a successful first year of a subscription to Times Higher Education Online, we have now renewed it for a further year. Existing subscribers should have received an alert from the publisher that the THE app will be discontinued following the publication of the 6th June issue. For readers who still want to page through the digital version of the weekly THE magazine, the digital editions section of the THE web site allows you to do this, and to download the full weekly magazine for offline reading.

New users, please see our webpage for set up instructions.

 

New! E-journals from Edinburgh University Press

With our 2019 renewal to Edinburgh University Press E-Journals package, we gain access to the following titles.

Ancient Philosophy Today: DIALOGOI provides a forum for the mutual engagement between ancient and contemporary philosophy. The journal connects interpretative work in ancient philosophy to current discussions in metaphysics, epistemology and ethics, and assesses the continuing relevance of ancient theories to current philosophical interests and debates.

 

 

Gothic Studies – The official journal of the International Gothic Association considers the field of Gothic studies from the eighteenth century to the present day.

 

 

Scottish Church History is the journal of the Scottish Church History Society. Founded in 1922 to promote the study of the history of Christianity in Scotland, the journal covers all periods and branches of Scottish churches from the early to the modern.

New! More Springer Protocols added to DiscoverEd

Used primarily in the life sciences, protocols provide individual sets of instructions to allow scientists to recreate experiments in their own laboratories. These documents provide written procedural methods in the design and implementation of experiments that describe the safety, bias, procedures, equipment, statistical methods, reporting, and troubleshooting standards to be used in order to successfully conduct the experiment.

We have now purchased copyright year 2019.  These will be added to DiscoverEd for the remainder of the year. A title list is available from https://experiments.springernature.com/download-source-titles-list.

Further info

Springer Protocols can also be accessed at http://www.ezproxy.is.ed.ac.uk/login?url=https://experiments.springernature.com which will allow you to cross-search our other subscriptions from SpringerNature (Nature Protocols, Nature Methods) as well as the open access repository Protocol Exchange.
