As you may be aware, from the the end of June, the merger between Blackwell Synergy & Wiley Interscience will take place. From June 30th, content from both sites will be available on http://www.interscience.wiley.com
So you will then be able to browse all Wiley-Blackwell journals, together with online books, reference works, databases, protocols and other electronic resources through one integrated service.
The benefits will begin immediately after June 30th:
One-stop access to a dramatically expanded range of relevant material
circa 3 million articles
Over 5000 online books, reference works and databases
If you have registered as a Blackwell Synergy user, you may receive table of contents alerts, journal information, etc. Your account will be migrated automatically to the new platform. If you already have a Wiley InterScience account, your information will be combined. You may be requested to accept new terms and conditions the first time you log in after June 30th.
The transition of Blackwell journals to Wiley InterScience and the shutdown of Synergy, will take place this weekend.
The scheduled downtime is as follows:
|02:00am ||Blackwell Synergy closes down|
10:00 am London
|Wiley InterScience goes offline temporarily|
02:00 am London
|Wiley InterScience comes back online,|
with Blackwell journals incorporated
Blackwell Synergy is no longer available
So what will be different?
Some terminology will be different, visit www.interscience.wiley.com/transition-users for a terminology glossary
The sender of table of contents email alerts will now be a Wiley InterScience address rather than the journal title
Wiley InterScience page layout differs slightly from Blackwell Synergy, see examples below or visit www.interscience.wiley.com/transition-users for more details
