Change to Blackwell journals on IngentaConnect from January 2007

Please be informed that from January 1st 2007, the full text of 
articles in Blackwell Publishing journals will no longer be 
hosted on IngentaConnect.  Libraries wishing to continue to 
provide online access to these journals should activate their 
access on Blackwell Synergy (http://www.blackwell-synergy.com). 
IngentaConnect will continue to host the metadata for Blackwell 
Publishing journals (including the tables of contents and 
abstracts) but users wishing to access the full text (in PDF or 
HTML format) will be directed to Blackwell Synergy where their 
access rights will be validated.  Users whose access is not 
validated by Blackwell Synergy will be offered the option to buy 
'pay per view' access on IngentaConnect.

Philippa Scoones, Web Publishing Director at Blackwell 
Publishing, described the move as an extension of the partnership 
between Ingenta and Blackwell.  "We have worked closely with 
Ingenta for almost ten years and they have successfully provided 
access to our journals online to a good number of library 
customers.  As we develop our own online journals platform, 
Blackwell Synergy, to be the primary source for searching and 
linking to Blackwell content, we want to be sure that all our 
customers benefit by linking through to the full text on

administering your institutional access to subscribed to journals

to follow, but if not, our customer service team will be 
available to help with this transition.  Please email

- About Online Journals from Blackwell Publishing -

All institutional subscriptions to Blackwell Publishing journals 
include an element of online access.  For the first time in 2007, 
standard print subscriptions will include online access to the 
current and two previous years' content, increased from the one 
year previously offered.  Premium subscriptions include print 
plus online access to current content, content dating back to 
January 1st 1997, and OnlineEarly articles published online 
before print.  Online Only subscriptions include the same access 
rights as Premium.  Both Premium and Online Only subscriptions 
include archival rights to paid-for content.

- What Online Access via Blackwell Synergy Offers -

Libraries which provide online access to Blackwell journals 
through Blackwell Synergy (http://www.blackwell-synergy.com) are 
offering the optimum service for their patrons.  For example, 
OnlineEarly content (now available for 250 journals) is only 
provided on Blackwell Synergy. Your users will also have access 
to a highly linked feature-rich research environment where the 
articles are available in both full-text HTML as well as PDF 
versions, rather than just the PDF available on other platforms. 
In addition it is only on Blackwell Synergy that your users will 
be able to access Online Open author-pays articles as they are
