Free Personal Subscriptions to "Cell"
For some reason known only to them, Cell Press (an imprint of Elsevier) is offering free personal print subscriptions for the journal, CELL, to faculty and students affiliated with institutions that have site licences for the electronic version of Cell! The UIUC Library, has, of course, paid for a site license for UIUC. Outside of this deal, an individual print subscription to Cell costs $165 for 2005.
So, if you'd like to sign up to receive a free personal subscription to Cell, please go to this site:
and fill in the requested information.
By the way, if you'd like to receive emailed "alerts" with the Table of Contents of Cell, you may do this by signing up for a table of contents alert at the Cell site or at the ScienceDirect site (where you can sign up for topic or TOC alerts for any of nearly 2000 Elsevier journals). When you get the TOC emails, they will have links for each article that will take you directly to the electronic version of the article. Most journals that are available electronically now offer this service, which deliver the TOC much more quickly than is possible via Current Contents or Web of Science alerts.
