NPG Introduces Mobile and Article ‘Rental’ Access Options

Nature Publishing Group (NPG) introduced a range of new affordable access options for readers. A number of Nature journals now offer 24-hour ‘view only’ access for $3.99 via the DeepDyve platform and a range of access models via the nature.com iPhone app. The nature.com reader for iPad is expected to launch later this month.

Readers can now view selected NPG content on the DeepDyve platform. Access to a single article for a 24 hour period is available for $3.99. Articles are available from Nature, Nature Biotechnology, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Medicine, and Nature Chemical Biology. An archive is available back to 2008, and new content will be added as it is published. The rental allows viewing only; readers may not download, print, or copy and paste from the article. In addition, abstracts and metadata from all NPG journals will be viewable and searchable on the DeepDyve platform. Links to the DeepDyve platform to rent individual articles will be provided on participating journals on nature.com. For more information, visit http://www.deepdyve.com/nature.

Low cost access options are also now available on the nature.com iPhone app. Initially introduced in February 2010, the app has recently been upgraded and now includes: Nature Genetics, Nature Medicine, Nature Biotechnology, Nature Reviews Microbiology, Nature Reviews Genetics, Nature Physics, and Nature Communications. Thirty-day and annual subscriptions are available. For Nature, access via the iPhone app is available for $9.99 for 30 days or $79.99 a year. Access to the other titles is $8.99 for 30 days or $69.99 a year. Subscriptions are paid for through the iTunes store. Like the DeepDyve offering, article access through the app is read-only. Access via the app is included in existing personal subscriptions. A future release of the app will allow iPhone users to purchase a week's access to individual articles for $3.99, and support site license access via IP range. NPG expects to launch a nature.com iPad app, the nature.com reader, this month. The app will cost $3.99 and offer the same subscription options and range of journals as the iPhone app.
