The WIREs publishing model

The WIREs combine the most powerful features of online review journals (high online visibility, immediacy, full abstracting and indexing) with the traditional strengths of the encyclopedic reference model (structure, authority, and comprehensiveness of coverage). A built-in mechanism for updating previously published content further differentiates the WIREs from traditional review journals.

With their deliberate focus on high-impact topics at the interfaces of the traditional research fields, together with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary outreach at the level of the individual article, the WIREs offer a valuable new forum for cross-disciplinary communication in scientific and scholarly research.
