China—An Expanding Audience for ASN, JASN, and CJASN

JASN and CJASN are part of a free trial in China that includes more than 140 of the top science, technology, and medicine (STM) journals hosted by HighWire Press. HighWire Press, which hosts the online editions of CJASN and JASN for ASN, has been working on this new endeavor in response to recent interest by institutions in China.

The free trial has already begun and lasts until mid-August. During this period, readers at universities in China can access all of the online content of these STM journals to obtain the most recent scientific and medical breakthroughs. The HighWire/China package comprises the highest impact STM journals and offers China’s research community the same exceptional benefits and features available to HighWire subscribers, including important data supplements, free interjournal linking, and cuttingedge articles published months before the print versions are available.

At the conclusion of the trial, each institution will decide whether they will subscribe to JASN, CJASN, and the other STM journals participating in this new Highwire/ China consortium at discounted bulk subscription rates. Please alert your colleagues in China about this free trial to JASN, CJASN, and more than 140 other STM publications. If your colleague’s university in China hasn’t already signed up for the trial, their librarian can sign up at
