SPE’s Plastics Engineering magazine-enhanced capabilities and functionality now available

SPE’s Plastics Engineering magazine is now housed in Wiley Online Library. The capabilities and functionality of the library enhance the reader experience by providing access to back-file content back to 2007, full-text search and inclusion in collections. As a benefit of membership, SPE members will continue to have full online access to the publication, along with SPE’s three journals, by logging in through SPE’s website, www.4spe.org.

 

We recognize the importance of having your published articles easily accessible and shareable, and we are pleased to inform you of the various article sharing and open access options now available via our partnership with Wiley. As an author, you have access to these options through your Wiley Author Services dashboard. Register for Wiley Author Services and add your article manually to your dashboard to access your options.

1. Content Sharing

Wiley offers our authors the ability to share a read-only full version of their published articles via a unique link that can be generated using the article DOI.

Top reasons to use Wiley Content Sharing:

  • Share with anyone — The link can be shared with an unlimited number of people
  • Share anywhere — Post the link on social media channels (including ready links to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and Reddit), institutional repositories, author websites, or SCNs (Scholarly Collaboration Networks) that have signed the STM sharing principles
  • Share with ease — Readers simply click the link to view the article in an Enhanced PDF format

You can get the link here (please have your article DOI ready).

In addition, if you already have a subscription to any of the SPE publications, you can now share any of the articles (regardless of authorship) with your peers by using a similar Content Sharing method. You can find instructions for that here.

2. Article Share

Article Share allows you to invite up to 10 colleagues to receive unlimited free access to your paper.

Top reasons to use Article Share:
