Wiley Online Library launch date confirmed

Dear all

I'm pleased to confirm that Wiley Online Library will be launched 
over the weekend of 7-8 August 2010. We have added an additional 
two weeks to the schedule to provide extra time for our 
customers, society partners and users to prepare for the cutover 
to Wiley Online Library, which will completely replace Wiley 

Wiley InterScience will no longer be available from Saturday 7 
August at 4am Eastern Daylight Time, 9am British Summer Time, 4pm 
Singapore Standard Time.  Wiley Online Library is due to go live 
on Sunday 8 August at 12pm Eastern Daylight Time, 5pm British 
Summer Time, Monday 9 August 12am Singapore Standard Time.

During this transition period, users will see a message 
explaining the reason for the unavailability and will be directed 
to http://www.wileyonlinelibrary.com/info for more details.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused. This interruption in 
service is necessary to facilitate a smooth transition to Wiley 
Online Library.  We will send you a further update soon after 
launch to confirm that the site is live.

All content, access rights, licenses and IP ranges have been 
transferred from Wiley InterScience to Wiley Online Library. 
Linking redirects will be put in place at launch and we have 
worked with third parties to ensure their links redirect. 
However, we cannot guarantee that all redirects will work in the 
long-term, particularly for manually-created links.  If you link 
directly to content on Wiley InterScience (or still have old 
Blackwell Synergy URLs) we recommend that you update your links. 
Further information on Wiley Online Library's OpenURL Interface 
and DOI Interface, as well as the new URL syntax is available on 
our information site:


If you use Wiley InterScience (or Blackwell Synergy) branding on 
any web pages you should also update these with new references to 
Wiley Online Library.  Logos, text, slideshows, and links for you 
to use are available on our information site:


We will be adding the new webinar training schedule shortly 
before launch.
