I have to share my excitement and enthusiasm with you!

Our flagship publication, Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (GEN), has been the most widely read publication in biotechnology since its inception 39 years ago. This year, we’ve expanded its content to include genome editing, one of the most important areas in biomedical research today and the latest iteration of the core technology on which GEN was founded. Complementing the latest coverage of drug discovery, omics, translational medicine, and bioprocessing, we continue to provide our readers with exclusive coverage of the technology products and people driving the field.

Academic institutions need to understand the technologies and have the information that can foster collaborations, especially as federal funding is so precarious. GEN’s companion publication, Clinical OMICS, provides in-depth coverage of advances in molecular diagnosis and personalized medicine, and is the only publication in the field with a sole focus on critical clinical applications. Taken together, these two publications are important for the academic community to foster research advances and applications. If you don’t already have a subscription, please contact us — we don’t want you to miss a single issue!

I’m feeling bold, and this year we are launching Death Research: The Last Frontier. Think about the importance and benefits of organ and cell transplantation, postmortem research, advances in resuscitation, and the fact that cells and brains are still alive after death is pronounced. This journal has been on my mind for many years since I first spoke about it with the late Nobel Prize Laureate, Francis Crick, who was then devoting all of his time to consciousness research. He thought it could be intriguing but that the time wasn’t right. It is now. As I have delved deep into this idea with scientific colleagues and others, I was amazed at how many people fear death, not the just the process of dying, but of the completely unknown. We continue to explore the earth, the solar system and space, and the seas, so I think of this as the “final frontier” of scholarly exploration. The Journal will be peer-reviewed, and reanimation, brain function, gene expression, and cryopreservation will be within its purview. It will be a challenging endeavor, but the journals I create have always been so.

Be sure The CRISPR Journal is among your holdings The promise and the perils of gene editing are enormous, and this, with over 70,000 downloads to date, is already the journal of record.

We hope you have added Autism in Adulthood to your collection for 2019. It is a growing issue and needs to be recognized and planned for as parents of adult children may not be around to take care of autistic adults throughout their lives.

Here in the US, we are all so grateful that the shutdown is over! We sent lunch to our local airport’s controllers. Local newspapers wrote about that, and then others did the same, which was terrific. I love making a difference in every way I can.

Yours 24/7,
Mary Ann
Founder, President, and CEO

This Issue's Featured Journal

Journal Cover

Tissue Engineering is the preeminent biomedical journal advancing the field with cutting-edge research and applications on all aspects of tissue growth and regeneration. This multidisciplinary journal brings together the principles of engineering and life sciences in tissue development and regenerative medicine. Tissue Engineering is divided into three parts, providing a central forum for groundbreaking scientific research and developments of clinical applications from leading experts in the field.

2019 marks the 25th anniversary of Tissue Engineering. Over two decades ago the Journal formed with the conviction that tissue engineering science would have tremendous impact on medicine and reconstructive surgery in the treatment of diseases. Today our commitment to providing groundbreaking research, reviews, and methods on all aspects of tissue growth and regeneration is stronger than ever.

Tissue Engineering is essential for collections serving biomedical and biomaterials engineers, materials and biomaterials scientists, stem cell researchers, biochemists, biophysicists, wound care specialists, orthopedic surgeons, and government regulators, among others.

Dispatches from Wendy Newsham, Director of Institutional Sales and Business Development

I spend a significant portion of each day analyzing data and reviewing trends that can help forecast various aspects of our business, particularly at this time of year as I work to make projections for the coming year. Every grain of data is collected and analyzed — no stone is left unturned. Planning a successful business requires relentless attention to detail so we can continue to provide superb service to the researchers who seek to publish with us, and to the librarians who want to ensure all of their patrons have access to content.

Recently I was reviewing usage trends, seeking to uncover what year of published content is most used, downloaded, and cited. This exercise reminded me that it’s not necessarily the groundbreaking new research that scientists seek, but often they develop their current work on the foundation of research that was completed and published in previous years. I know this is obvious and those of us who have spent our careers in scholarly publishing realize this, but sometimes a particular project will jog a reminder: The beauty of the research cycle is that past innovations drive further discoveries and make history anew.

The data-driven confirmation of this fact of the usage cycle made me think of research archives, and our journal archives specifically. We have worked hard to ensure that all published papers from all volumes of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. journals be accessible online — even those publications that began before online research existed (imagine!). A paper published eight years ago in our Journal of Neurotrauma could provide the key to a researcher on the brink of a major breakthrough in traumatic brain injury treatment. Or a 2010 article in Thyroid could contain the one salient point that leads to the most appropriate course of treatment for a patient. In both cases the researchers would need access to archive content if the institution did not subscribe during those years. We know librarians know the value of archive content — it explains last year’s winning #ToteVote slogan: My Archive Has Back Issues.


This is why Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. offers our archive content in the most flexible purchasing program possible — buy the exact journal and the specific publication year (or years!) that your library needs. We believe you should not be forced to buy large volumes of archive content, but rather identify and purchase perpetual access to the precise the content needed. The archive content can be made accessible as part of your content license, or we can provide PDF files for hosting on your own intranet.

Researchers in the fields in which we publish love our journals, and it is our mission to make every paper available to every one of them by ensuring a friction-free method of providing access. If you would like further information about acquiring archive content for your institution, you can either contact your sales representative, or reach out to me directly — I will be happy to help.
