China Online Journals: Wanfang Has Moved, Old Links Broken

Posted on July 16, 2012 @5:06 pm by madgett

*UPDATE* Sadly, Wanfang is reluctant to supply Serials Solutions (the company that helps manage our online linking) with the new URLs. This means the individual links are still broken. Please use the link to the China Online Journals home page listed below.

China Online Journals has changed its URLs. Unfortunately, our links haven’t switched over as quickly and all links to the individual ejournals lead to an error message.

While this gets sorted, please use the new China Online Journals home page and look for individual ejournals there. We hope the updating won’t take long. Thanks for your patience.
