Journal platform migration

On Thursday 15 April 2021, the five prestigious journals of The Company of Biologists are moving to the hosting platform of Silverchair. This move enables us to improve user experience and to maximise the discoverability of our content for the biological community.

In order for the move to go as smoothly as possible, we have provided several resources for you below. We look forward to the move and the benefits it will bring all of our customers, librarians, readers and authors.

Download usage stats

If you are an institutional subscriber, please make sure you download historic usage statistics from the current platform, as pre-migration reports on the new platform will be limited to COUNTER4 J1 reports from 2019, 2020 and Q1 2021. The full range of COUNTER4 and COUNTER5 pre-migration usage reports can be downloaded on the HighWire platform until 30 April 2021.

Content alerts

Your Accepted manuscripts, Latest published articles and Table of contents alerts will be transferred to our new platform.

We are sorry that we cannot transfer any specific search alerts you have set up, e.g. article, correction or keyword and author searches. Please take note of any searches you would like to keep, so you can set them up again once we move to the new platform.
