Good news about RefWorks

Following negotiations with the publisher, we have managed to secure the subscription to RefWorks for another academic year.  We hope to support a continued subscription to RefWorks for the foreseeable future, but this will be dependent on negotiations with the publisher.  Please continue to use RefWorks if it is your preferred reference management tool.  We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that has been caused by our earlier message about the cancellation of this subscription.  New RefWorks is also available.  If you want more information about the functionality of New RefWorks, please contact the academic support team at libsupport@bangor.ac.uk

A new platform for Nature Journals

Over the next few months, you might notice some changes to Nature Journals. Your access will not be affected, and you do not need to update your bookmarks.
The new design has a number of advantages:

•    Updated, modern design across the site with a clean journal homepage for ease of navigation

•    New functionality on article pages, including a way to quickly navigate between article sections, or view figures alongside text, in the right-hand column

•    Improved ability to highlight articles of interest or topical announcements on the journal homepage

•    Integration of article level metrics ('Altmetrics') to surface 'trending' articles on the journal homepage, which will display articles from the journal which have been most read or had a recent increase in Altmetric score

This update will also allow the Nature Publishing Group to:

•    Publish articles faster

•    Improve content discovery

•    Provide a foundation for future development
