On March 22, ASHA kicked off a new online hosting partnership with HighWire Press that dramatically improves online access to ASHA journals. Members not only have full-text content for all four journals, but also an archive that has been expanded back to 1980. In addition, other upgrades make the journals’ content more user-friendly.
From the ASHA Web site, select “ASHA & NSSLHA Members” - “ASHA Full-Text Journals” to check out the following features:
  • E-mail alerts. Sign up to receive “eTOCs”-and receive e-mail alerts with a full table of contents (TOC) each time a new TOC is posted online for any or all of the journals, or simply a message saying the content is posted.

  • CiteTrack. Another type of e-mail alert is “CiteTrack,” which alerts you by e-mail whenever new content is published that matches your specific selected parameters. You determine which HighWire journals should be covered, and alerts are sent whenever new content matches criteria based on your selected topics (keywords/subjects of interest), authors (individuals whose work you are following) and articles (when a paper of interest is referenced by another paper or letter).

  • E-mail a friend. Did you find an article that addressed a topic that you recently discussed with a colleague? You can e-mail the article to your colleague directly from the new host site.

  • Quick searches and advanced searches. ASHA’s new online host offers a “quick search” as well as an advanced search. You can limit your search to one ASHA journal, all four journals, or, by starting on the HighWire home page, all journals on HighWire and PubMed.

  • Improved “Googling.” Google has permission to index the ASHA journals from the HighWire site. The result will be that more of the literature from our discipline will show up on Google searches.

  • Personal folders. Although you can link directly to the journals through ASHA’s Web site, if you wish to personalize your HighWire site, you can register and begin setting up “My Favorite Journals” and “My Sitebar” for easy access from your desktop.

The journal site is currently open to the public, but after April 24 full-text articles will be available only to ASHA members and subscribers. Others will be able to see tables of content, titles, authors, and abstracts but will use HighWire’s pay-per-view or pay-for-access system to access either single articles or the entire site for a period of time.
Institutional subscribers will now have online access with their print subscription. If your library subscribes to ASHA journals in print, remind your librarian to activate the online subscription as well.
After experiencing the advantages of having access to all four ASHA journals online, you may no longer wish to receive your selected print journal. Call the Action Center at 800-498-2071 if you would like to discontinue your print journal.
HighWire Press is a nonprofit subsidiary of Stanford University Libraries. Currently, more than 900 journals are hosted on their site. Visit the HighWire Web site to find out more about HighWire.
