N - Australian journal restricts access

The Medical Journal of Australia (www.mja.com.au) is restricting online access to general content, excluding research papers, from January 2009 to subscribed users only. The online edition of the journal has been free since its inception in 2001. All previously published articles will remain open access. Research articles will be freely accessible online for two weeks following publication, after which a subscription will be required. Twelve months after publication, all articles will revert to open access.
