Blackwell content – Gone again…. – RESTORED

Posted on April 19, 2013 @10:14 pm by madgett

Update: 11:40am

Fortunately, the outage was short-lived. We should be back on-track.

——

Aaargh! Well it was nice while it lasted!

Access to our Blackwell content went down again. It’s been reported to Wiley and I’m hopeful this this is a just a temporary outage. Stay tuned for an update.

Many of you have discovered titles that didn’t get restored. Please remember to check the missing content list. And there are always exceptions, so please don’t hesitate to send questions to eResources Help

Also, if you are being denied access, you can submit a request to InterLibrary Loans – during these transitory times, that might be the fastest way to get articles that are needed urgently.

Access to Blackwell journal content on Wiley InterScience – RESTORED!

Posted on April 19, 2013 @10:14 pm by madgett

Good news!
Access to most of our subscribed Blackwell journals has finally been restored on Wiley InterScience.

Article-level linking (through Citation Linker, Google Scholar, PubMed etc.) is still unavailable, however Wiley is anticipating these services will be activated by the end of the week. The publisher has also made progress on migrating some of the content missed during the original integration. For the list of content still to be moved to Wiley InterScience see here.

Please report any continuing access problems to eResources Help.

Access to Blackwell journal content on Wiley InterScience – NOT AVAILABLE

Posted on April 19, 2013 @10:14 pm by madgett

Access to most of our subscribed Blackwell journal content on Wiley InterScience is currently unavailable.
Be assured that our account rep at Wiley is working to resolve this as soon as possible.

Unfortunately in the meantime, the typical search leads to that frustrating ‘login below to purchase access’ screen. We are certainly not alone in this situation – it is being experienced world-wide to a greater or lesser extent. Here is Canada, the problem is shared by all our peer academic institutions, which like UBC, are part of the CRKN consortial license agreement.

Some progress has been made towards providing title level access (fewer instances of landing on the Wiley InterScience home page), however article level linking (Citation Linker, PubMed etc.) is not expected to be restored until later next week. We sincerely hope to have our access available before then!

Updates will continue to be posted here.
Questions, concerns, comments? Please contact us!

Wiley InterScience – missing Blackwell content

Posted on April 19, 2013 @10:14 pm by madgett

As many of you have discovered there is missing content from Blackwell which is not yet available on the Wiley InterScience site. This includes some issues, articles, parts of articles (e.g. article loaded in xml but not in PDF) plus some missing metadata and articles which need to be fixed due to special character rendering issues.

The full list of content to be added can be found here.

Wiley aims to complete the migration over next 10 days. For the latest information, please go to the transition site.

Update: Blackwell Synergy Journals have moved to Wiley InterScience

Posted on April 19, 2013 @10:14 pm by madgett

As of Monday, June 30, 2008, all Blackwell journal content—including full-text HTML and PDF versions of articles from current issues, backfiles, and issues published online before print—has been incorporated into Wiley InterScience.

Blackwell Synergy is no longer online.

PLEASE NOTE: OpenURL links are currently not redirecting at the journal level but instead default to the Wiley InterScience homepage. This means the UBC elink and Serials Solutions A-Z links are not linking directly to titles and articles. The publisher is working on this and expects to have this resolved within a few days.
