Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. Provides Free Online Journal Access in Recognition of World AIDS Day
New Rochelle,NY, December 1, 2010Due to the urgent need to disseminate authoritative information in the field of HIV/AIDS research and clinical care, publisher Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. will provide complimentary online access to the fully searchable legacy content of the company's AIDS journals through the end of December in honor of World AIDS Day. Free online access is available for AIDS Patient Care and STDs (www.liebertpub.com/apc) and AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses (www.liebertpub.com/aid).
Mary Ann Liebert, founder, president, and CEO of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., launched the first journal on AIDS in 1985, long before AIDS was considered a major threat to public health. Her vision and continuing commitment to ensure that important research and clinical information is available to those who may not have access to it, led to a policy that these publications are available electronically, for free, in Africa, and parts of Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union. “The articles published in these authoritative journals are enormously valuable to foster international research advances and new therapeutic options to advance patient care around the world,” said Mary Ann Liebert. AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses and AIDS Patient Care and STDs were the first peer-reviewed journals in AIDS, and I am especially proud to make them available free online through the end of the year.
AIDS Patient Care and STDs (www.liebertpub.com/apc), edited by Jeffrey Laurence, MD, from Weill Cornell Medical Center, spans the full spectrum of HIV disease, diagnosis, treatment, salvage therapies for resistant HIV, prevention, and education. AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses (www.liebertpub.com/aid), edited by Thomas Hope, PhD, from Northwestern University, is a highly respected, worldwide Journal that covers the multidisciplinary study of retrovirus-associated diseases with emphasis on HIV.
