Trial access ‘Science’ (AAAS) journals

Consortium Luxembourg is happy to offer a trial access to the famous journal ‘Science‘ and the Science family of journals. Trial access will expire end of November 2021.

Science is the world’s leading journal of original scientific research, global news, and commentary. Science Online provides digital access to all Science content from 1997 to the current issue, including prepublication content.

Science has been at the center of important scientific discovery since its founding in 1880—with seed money from Thomas Edison. Today, Science continues to publish the very best in research across the sciences, with articles that consistently rank among the most cited in the world.

A trailblazer in online publishing as well, the Science family of publications has grown to include online journals Science Translational Medicine, Science Signaling, Science Immunology, Science Robotics and the open access journal Science Advances.

Science Translational Medicine, is an essential platform for peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary research driving the latest medical advances. Science Signaling offers original review articles, protocols and teaching resources for the growing field of cellular signal transduction. Science Immunology publishes basic, translational and clinical research specifically about immunology across all organisms and model systems, including humans. Science Robotics covers new developments in robotics and related fields, with a dual focus on the science of robotics as well as introducing researchers more broadly to how robots can be used to accelerate scientific study. Science Advances represents the next generation of online publishing, with rapid publication of significant, full-length research that is available free to readers.

The Science family of journals is published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s oldest and largest general science organization.

Access is possible for every user with a valid library card of the National Library, University of Luxembourg, LIST or LIH.

Trial Policy Commons

We’re happy to announce that from today until 20th May 2021 we’re having a trial in place for the platform “Policy Commons”.

Launched in November 2020, Policy Commons is the first platform that brings together and organises the reports, papers and other research outputs published, often informally, by the world’s IGOs, NGOs, and third-sector organisations. It currently comprises 2.2 million items and a directory of 21,000 policy organizations, the largest ever compiled. Last month, 145,000 new items were added, as was a special collection of 45,000 items from African NGOs and 10,000 more ‘orphaned’ reports from inactive NGOs. Besides, Policy Commons meanwhile includes the complete catalog of publications from the Council of Europe, the Continent’s leading human rights organization. Policy Commons also enables members of the policy community to upload and share their own publications with the international policy community.

Content that matters
Policy Commons covers many disciplines—agriculture, energy, pharmaceuticals, diversity, crime, librarianship, and much more. Content is thoroughly vetted by the organizations that produce it, and it’s curated by editors. It’s highly current, with 34,000 items from 2020, including 8,000 items on COVID-19, and 9,400 on Black Lives Matter.

Access is possible for every user with a valid library card of the National Library, University of Luxembourg, LIST or LIH.
