JISC Collections has purchased the Cambridge Journals Digital Archive Complete Collection in perpetuity on behalf of UK Higher Education.

This agreement provides access to the online back issues of 171 journals published by Cambridge University Press. The collection dates from 1827 to 1996 with approximately 350,000 articles, over 3.3 million pages and over 8 million linked references. All articles have been digitised as high resolution PDFs and are fully searchable.

The following subject collections are available now: Scientific, Technical and Medical and Humanities and Social Sciences, Part 1. Part 2 of the Humanities and Social Sciences subject collection will be available from August 2011.

The archive was purchased in response to an extensive consultation and evaluation process with UK universities. For UK institutions that have access to the current Cambridge Journals collection via the JISC NESLI2 agreement, the purchase of the archive brings the advantage of seamless online access to the entire content from these 171 journals published by Cambridge University Press.
