Update on Acquisitions: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates and Haworth 

Dear Subscribers,

I am delighted to give you an update on the two major 
acquisitions the Taylor & Francis Group is currently 
incorporating. I hope this helps to confirm channels of 
communication should you need any help with your accounts during 
this period of transition.

Lawrence Erlbaum Associates

Diary date

1st April is the date that we plan to put redirects in place from 
www.leaonline.com to www.informaworld.com. The redirects will be 
stable, but we advise users to update their catalogue with links 
to subscribed titles on informaworld. A list of journals and 
their new URLS can be found at www.informaworld.com/lea.

Usage statistics

Further to our earlier communication, we have arranged for the 
LEA Online client site to remain available to library account 
administrators until 30th June 2008. This will allow customers to 
download usage statistics from LEA Online up to the point of 
transition. We are exploring how to incorporate LEA Online usage 
statistics on informaworld, although we do not yet have a 
scheduled date for their availability.

Backfile access

Taylor & Francis' backfile access policy allows users to access 
content back to 1997 with a current subscription. In some cases, 
LEA's policy allowed access to a deeper backfile. Going forward, 
all new LEA current year subscriptions will follow the Taylor & 
Francis Group policy of allowing backfile access to 1997, where 
available. Those subscribers who held a subscription to an LEA 
title with extended backfile access during 2007 will retain their 
current backfile access so long as they hold a current 
subscription to a title. A list of journals, and the access 
ranges currently permitted by LEA is available at:



Access to former LEA titles should now be available via your 
institution's account at www.informaworld.com. If you are 
experiencing any access difficulties, please contact 
support@informaworld.com and our online team will be very happy 
to assist.

If you have a subscription enquiry, or have experienced any 
difficulty with renewing your LEA subscriptions this year, please 
contact our customer services team directly at 
tf.enquiries@informa.com.* Alternatively, we can help you with 
any subscription problems via your agent.

Moved titles

Three former LEA journals will not be available via 

Annals of Behavioral Medicine has moved to Springer:

Journal of Consumer Psychology has moved to Elsevier:

Any questions you have regarding these titles should be addressed 
to the new publisher.

Communications Yearbook will be published as a book under the 
Routledge imprint 

Haworth Press

Current Access

We have scheduled the move from www.haworthpress.com to 
www.informaworld.com for early 2009. Until that date, access will 
continue to be available via the Haworth site. Details of a 
confirmed transfer date will be circulated during this year.


Customer service and technical support for Haworth titles is now 
available via Taylor & Francis. We have dedicated lines of 
communication to assist with customer queries during this 
transitional period, and customers should expect a professional 

Issues regarding online access to haworthpress.com should be 
directed to haworthpress@taylorandfrancis.com.

Customers should direct orders and questions for Customer Service 
to tf.enquiries@informa.com.* We also have dedicated sales 
representatives who will be very happy to help customers. Details 
of how to contact your local representative are available at 

We have worked hard to minimise the impact of the transition of 
the LEA and Haworth lists, and would like to thank our customers 
for their patience during this period.

Yours faithfully,
