John Wiley & Sons, Inc. and EBSCO Subscription Services have reached an agreement to link EBSCO Online to more than 300 scientific, technical, medical and professional journals available online through Wiley InterScience (www.interscience.wiley.com). Wiley is a leading publisher for the scientific, technical and medical (STM) communities worldwide. "EBSCO is excited to announce the addition of Wiley journals to our EBSCO Online service," said F. Dixon Brooke Jr., vice president and general manager of EBSCO Subscription Services. "With EBSCO Online we strive to offer access to the finest scholarly information available. The addition of the Wiley titles tremendously enhances our content offerings."
"This agreement is the latest example of the type of alliance Wiley is managing to enhance Wiley's role in advancing scientific progress through a partnership with scientific, research and academic communities that began more than a century ago," said Gregory St. John, vice president and general manager, Wiley InterScience.
Wiley InterScience, Wiley's online content service, was launched in the fall of 1997 to respond to the growing worldwide demand for important, reliable, and timely scientific, technical, medical and professional information.
Since January 7, 1999, more than 300 journals in full text dating back to January 1997, as well as the full range of services available from Wiley InterScience, are accessible to subscribers and their authorized users.
Beginning last year, Wiley InterScience is also the online platform for major reference works, most recently including the Current Protocols Online laboratory manuals series and Patty's Industrial Hygiene and Toxicology.
Wiley's STM programs encompass journals, encyclopedias and electronic products in subjects such as the life and physical sciences, chemistry, statistics and mathematics, electrical and electronics engineering, and select medical areas with an emphasis on cancer medicine.
EBSCO Online is a Web-based service that provides access and management for all aspects of a comprehensive electronic journal collection. Users can go to one URL and use one search engine to search across journal content from a variety of publishers to access the full text. Administrators can choose from a variety of authentication methods to make access easy for users, depending on their needs.
