Haworth Journals – Coming soon to informaworld Jennifer McMillan 06 Oct 2008 13:34 UTC

Dear subscriber,

Taylor & Francis Group recently acquired the publishing portfolio of Haworth
Press. I am writing to give you advance notification of our schedule for
migrating the ejournals from www.haworthpress.com to www.informaworld.com
to allow for a smooth platform transition for you and your users.

From November 2008 we will begin to load journal titles formerly published by
Haworth Press to www.informaworld.com. From this point, no new content
with a 2009 volume year will be added to www.haworthpress.com, nor will any
new accounts be created on the site. We expect this load to be complete by
mid-December, and for all Haworth content to be available on informaworld
from this point.
The Haworth Press site will run in tandem with informaworld until 30th March
2009, after which date the site will be closed.
In order to minimise user disruption we plan to offer a free trial to all Haworth
Press content on informaworld between November and mid-January. This will
also give you an opportunity to check your holdings on informaworld are

Online Access
The Haworth Press licence currently allows access to purchased volume years
only. Once content is loaded to www.informaworld.com, the access model will
change to allow online access to current content along with a backfile to
1997, where digitised. Purchased content will be available in perpetuity.
In most cases, online access should be transferred automatically to your
institution’s informaworld account. In the case of personal subscribers and any
new institutional subscribers who do not yet have an informaworld account
you will receive an email detailing how to access your subscription. We will
send you an email once all content is loaded to advise you to check your
access thoroughly whilst we are dual hosting and report any anomalies to the
informaworld support team at support@informaworld.com.

Online Access to Ceased Titles
We plan to host ceased titles from www.haworthpress.com on informaworld
and will supply users with a list of these titles in future correspondence. Users
will need to claim online access to ceased titles by contacting

Academic to Calendar Year subscriptions
Haworth Press published titles on an academic year basis (September to
August). Taylor & Francis will be publishing these titles on a calendar year
basis. Any 2007/2008 academic year subscriptions will be extended to 31
December 2008. All volumes will be published on a calendar year basis from

Link Resolvers
From November 2008 we plan to feature Haworth Press content in the feeds
we provide to link resolver intermediaries including Serials Solutions, Ex Libris,
TD Net and Ebsco Industries A-Z.

Usage Statistics
Currently the usage statistics on www.haworthpress.com are not COUNTER
Compliant. Because the data is not compliant we do not plan to migrate the
Haworth Press usage statistics to informaworld. We do hope, after the close of
the Haworth Press site, to make available the previous usage statistics from
the site.  We encourage any user wishing to access these statistics to
download them from www.haworthpress.com before March 30, 2009.
It is our hope that this transition causes minimal disruption to you and your
library users. Your patience during this transition is very much appreciated and
we hope that the move to informaworld from Haworth Press will provide an
improved user experience in the long term.

With kind regards,

Jennifer McMillan
