Blackwell, Wiley journals down this weekend

Both Blackwell Synergy and Wiley Interscience, the journal delivery interfaces for Blackwell and Wiley titles, respectively, will be down this weekend. The intended schedule for the outages are as follows:

  • Today, 3 p.m. HST: Blackwell Synergy goes down
  • Tonight, 11 p.m. HST: Wiley Interscience goes offline
  • Sunday, 3 p.m. HST: Wiley Interscience returns, with Blackwell journals now incorporated

The reason for the outage is Wiley bought Blackwell Publishing last year, and this weekend are migrating all Blackwell journal content to the Wiley platform.

The UH Manoa Library has access to nearly 1,000 journal titles via Blackwell and Wiley combined.
