RE: Best Journal Aggregator for Biomedicine

Cell Press will now sell access to all four of their journals, but their
price is based on the number of individual subscriptions with the same ZIP
code as the library purchasing the access.  This is done because they are
expecting to lose the individual subscribers as soon as the online access
is available through the library.  This naturally makes the online access
rather expensive.
