International Pathology Day, scratch-off codes, and a new online platform…


This week we celebrate International Pathology Day and the UK’s National Pathology Week, so we thought this would be the perfect time to let you know about the launch of new features and functionality to accompany our pathology books here at Cambridge University Press. Hosted on Cambridge Books Online, and replacing the old book + dvd model, the new online versions of our pathology books offer:

  • access to all text and images from each book – no need to carry heavy books around
  • low-resolution in-text images for ease of browsing and quick loading of pages
  • high-resolution pop-up versions of each image, allowing users to view and examine images in detail
  • expandable tables
  • in-book search, allowing users to find and jump to relevant text and images easily
  • hyperlinked in-book references and interactive index
  • optimised for computers/laptops (all major browsers) and tablets but also compatible with smartphones.

Access to the online content for any particular title will be provided to all purchasers of the print book, by means of a unique scratch-off code inside the book. Simple instructions allow the user to set up an account and activate their code, for quick and easy log-in to their content. Institutional users such as libraries will also be able to purchase access to the online content without needing to purchase the print book, by visiting Cambridge Books Online.

Titles already available or coming soon on this platform include the following –
