The European Respiratory Journal (ERJ) is the official journal of the European Respiratory Society. Published in the English language, the ERJ features: cutting edge clinical and experimental work in the field of respiratory medicine; original articles; series; editorials; correspondence; and short reports and case studies. The ERJ is the most highly regarded, peer reviewed, respiratory journal in Europe.
ERJ Online contains the full content of each issue of the journal, including all figures and tables, beginning with the January, 2000 issue (Volume 15, Issue 1). The full text is searchable by keyword, and the cited references include hyperlinks to PubMed and to the online full text of many other frequently-cited journals. PDF files are available beginning in January 1995 (Volume 8, Issue 1). Finally, Abstracts and Tables of Contents are available beginning with the January, 1988 issue (Volume 1, Issue 1).
Online readers may want to sign up for the eTOC (electronic Tables of Contents) service, which will deliver each new issue's table of contents via email. The web site also provides access to information about the journal (such as Instructions to Authors, the Editorial Board, and subscription information), as well as access to the Society web site.
After September 1, 2004, access to the full text of current articles will be available by institutional subscriptions, or by individual subscriptions that are available to Society members. Eighteen months after publication, full-text articles will become freely available. All other content at the ERJ site (e.g., Abstracts, eTOCs, searching, Instructions to Authors) will be freely available.
We very much encourage you to sign the guestbook on your first visit to the site. This will take only a minute or two, and it will provide us with helpful information about who the online readers are and how they are connecting to the site. In addition, we would appreciate comments, critiques, questions, or suggestions from you; these can be sent via the Feedback link found on all pages of the site. Feedback from readers will help us decide what new features would be most valuable for the site and how well it is working for its readers.
The new ERJ site was produced in conjunction with Stanford University's HighWire Press, which also works with other medical and research journals, including the following that are the most frequently cited in the ERJ: American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, Chest, Thorax, and New England Journal of Medicine.
