The Internet version of JBC is a co-publishing venture of the American
Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the HighWire Press,
the electronic imprint of the Stanford University Libraries and
Academic Information Resources. JBC is a weekly publication with
approximately 30,000 pages per annual volume. In the next six months,
we will be moving to a full production operation featuring weekly
issues. All of the functions available now in the demonstration
version and more will be available in the production version.
Stanford colleagues of the JBC development team, led by John Sack,
Associate Publisher of the HighWire Press, are proud of what the team
has been able to accomplish in a few short months. The development
team consisted of a rich mixture of librarians, information
technologists, faculty and students at Stanford, staff and management
of WAIS, and the staff and management of Cadmus Journal Services, and,
of course, our colleagues from the ASBMB.
