Blackwell Synergy Merges with Wiley InterScience

On June 30th, 2008 one of our database vendors, Blackwell Synergy, will merge with new provider Wiley InterScience.

Wiley will close Blackwell Synergy at the end of business (Pacific Standard Time) on Friday June 27th and anticipates that the migration will be completed by Monday June 30th. Over the weekend of June 28th and 29th, there will be a period when both Blackwell Synergy and Wiley InterScience will be unavailable while they transition and re-index data.

After June 30th, Blackwell Synergy will no longer be available. Details about the actual downtime period will be posted on each site prior to June 27th, and you can find other essential information and FAQs about the change in service here:

Some important things to remember:
  • No new Wiley-Blackwell content will be published online from June 21st until July 7th. After July 7th, publication schedules will resume as usual.
  • Links to journals on Blackwell Synergy will automatically redirect to Wiley InterScience.
  • Subscriptions for Blackwell journals on Synergy will migrate to Wiley InterScience, with the terms of all existing licenses honored
  • IP authentication will continue to function seamlessly.
