Cross-Journal Searching

Go to the HighWire Search page to search all HighWire-hosted journals.

Inter-Journal Links

So that you can quickly and easily move from articles to the full text of cited references, we have created hyperlinks from reference citations to the articles to which they refer.

When one HighWire-hosted journal cites an article from another HighWire-hosted journal, hyperlinks have been created which allow you to move from the original article to the abstract of the cited article. Likewise, links have been created to allow users of other HighWire-hosted journals to quickly and easily access other HighWire-hosted articles. [List of Participating Journals]

These Inter-Journal links take you to the abstract of the cited reference. Limited free access may be granted to allow you free use of the single article which was cited by the original article.

Searching Medline

You may search Medline from the HighWire search page.

Exporting Citations We provide a simple and direct method of acquiring article citations in the Medlars format compatible with import into personal bibliographic management software such as EndNote, Reference Manager, or ProCite.

To export citations with Abstracts for any HighWire article to a citation manager program, the following steps are suggested:

  1. View the abstract or Full Text article of interest

  2. Click the [Download to Citation Manager] link above the article title.

  3. When the tagged version of the citation is displayed, scroll until the "Save" button can be seen.

  4. Select your preferred format (Macintosh, PC or Unix) from the "Save" menu and click the Save button.

  5. Select the directory you wish to save the file in and give the file a unique name.

  6. Follow the instructions that came with your citation manager to import the reference into your personal bibliographic database

If your citation manager does not support import of Medlars format, you may still use the Download function. After saving the citation to your local disk, open the citation file and manually copy/paste the information in the file into the appropriate fields in your personal bibliographic database.

Viewing Figures

Thumbnail Images:

A "thumbnail" -- a small version -- of each figure or equation appears in the text. In most cases, these thumbnails are sufficient to permit you to decide if you want to see the larger version(s).

Medium-Sized Images:

Clicking on a thumbnail opens a second window in your browser that displays a larger version of a table or figure, as well as the complete text of the figure's caption. You don't need any additional software to view this medium-size image.

Large, High-Resolution Images:

To view a high-resolution version of a figure, click on the medium-sized image or the link to "[View Larger Version of this Image]". Browsers can be used to view high-resolution images, but we recommend using a helper application instead. Read about obtaining and configuring a graphics viewer under the appropriate section: Macintosh, Windows, or Unix.

Printing

  • Articles: Print the "Reprint (PDF) Version of this article" version for output that closely resembles the paper version of HighWire.

  • Abstracts, tables of contents, search results: Use your browser's Print function.

  • High-Resolution figures: JPEGView for Macintosh or LViewPro for Windows.
