Quality Gateway to Research - Each article includes a complete
bibliography. Journal references are linked to the original source via
CrossRef, allowing the scientist or student to "drill down" to the primary
content. The combination of these hyperlinked references and accompanying
authoritative text puts published work into context and gives a quality stamp,
forming the gateway to the subject.
Time-to-market - The submission, review and production process are
web-based with strict deadlines. The review process focuses on quality,
completeness, and timeliness. This insures that the content is "fresh" upon
Updating - An online updating procedure enables subsequent important
new work to be identified and contextualized in real time. This includes the
updating of the references, adding new data, and addressing comments.
Periodically, the intermediary updates will be consolidated into a new version
