The full BioTechniques IS available in Europe (or the UK, at least),
although unlike the Euro edition, you have to pay for it. The Euro
edition is not only a time-lagged but also a pruned version of the full
monty BioTechniques, so waiting for your article to appear eventually
is not a foolproof option.

Can't help with the medium.
