Early issues of ATLA to be free access
Editorials and abstracts of articles in ATLA (Alternatives to Laboratory Animals) have always been available through the FRAME website, free of charge.
Access to the current issue and the immediately previous one, will still be subscription only, but Volume 38 (2010) and before will now be unlocked so they will be accessible without cost.
Readers will still need to register their name and email address to receive a username and password to gain access, but, once logged in, there will be no further restrictions. Volume 38 is already available, and earlier volumes will be released over the coming weeks.
ATLA aims to cover all aspects of the development, validation, assessment and use of alternatives to using animals in biomedical research and toxicity testing. For some years after the foundation of FRAME in 1969, it was issued as a pamphlet style publication, but in 1983, with the help of funding from the Maurice Laing Foundation, it was relaunched as a peer-reviewed international science journal. Today it is distributed in more than 50 countries.
