Looking for an image? A recent upgrade to the journal site for Annals of Botany means that you can now access images from published papers without charge.
That means that this month you can examine the roots of beans, or see where flowers pin pollen to bees.
The images aren’t just available as jpeg files. For example, if you want to include the tannosome (or anything else from the journal) in a talk you’re giving, you can download PowerPoint slides.
It’s also worth reminding people that a year after being published in the journal, it’s not just the images that are free – the whole paper is. We’re not the first journal to offer this service, but this is an important part of our ongoing commitment to open access to scientific information.
Consistent effort of Dr Alun Salt is making AoB Blog more useful. And more one use the information, more it increases the scientific metrics of the article or content available with the group of AoB. No doubt AoB is moving along with the changing definition of citation.
I’m afraid I can’t take the credit for this. I think Pat Heslop-Harrison and OUP were the key people in making this happen. This is a shame as I could have put in for a pay-rise today. 🙂
