Nature announced this month a new content-sharing policy. The policy allows all research papers within the publication to be shared by subscribers to anyone via a screen-view format. Through National Jewish Health’s institutional subscription, users can access and share any paper the journal has published from 1997 onward. The sharing platform, ReadCube, generates a persistent link to an article that allows the shared article to be read, but not printed or downloaded. There is an annotation tool that allows collaboration between researchers and there are additional tools available if users wish to download the ReadCube app. You can view an example of what a shared article would look like via this link: http://rdcu.be/bOr3, which was generated through Nature’s new share feature.
