Re: Haworth Journals: Available now at informaworld Burns, Karen 06 Jan 2009 15:41 UTC


	Just curious to see if anyone else is having the same problem I am.
A number of our Haworth titles have not transferred over and as per their
announcement below, I sent an email to support with all the details.  My
first email was deleted without being read.  I sent a second email with the
added subject heading of please read and it was deleted without being read
as well.  I realize that all Haworth titles are currently free for the
transition period but I would like to have had this resolved before that
free period ends.  Just wondering if anyone else was getting the same
response from them?

Subject: [SERIALST] Haworth Journals: Available now at informaworld

Dear Serialst,

Please see below for information which may be of interest to the list on the
transition of journals formerly published by Haworth Press to informaworld.
With apologies for cross-posting.

All journal titles formerly published by Haworth Press are now available at
informaworld ( This marks the first stage in
migrating the ejournals from to informaworld. The
following information will help you to prepare for a smooth platform
for you and your users.

From today all Haworth journal titles are available from informaworld. From
point, no new content with a 2009 volume year will be added to, nor will any new accounts be created on the site.

The Haworth Press site will run in tandem with informaworld until 30th March
2009, after which date the Haworth Press site will be closed.

Online Access
The Haworth Press licence currently allows access to purchased volume years
only. We have amended this access model to allow access to current content
with a current subscription along with a backfile to 1997, where digitised.
Access to previous content will be made available through our Online Archive
Packages, with further details to follow in the New Year. 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
new institutional subscribers who do not yet have an informaworld account
you will receive an email detailing how to access your subscription. We
you to check your access thoroughly whilst we are dual hosting and report
any anomalies to the informaworld support team at

Online Access to Ceased Titles
We plan to host ceased titles from on informaworld. A
list of these titles can be found at Users
will need to claim online access to ceased titles by contacting

Academic to Calendar Year subscriptions
Haworth Press published some titles on an academic year basis (September to
August). Taylor & Francis will be publishing these titles on a calendar year
basis. All volumes are being published on a calendar year basis from 2008.

Link Resolvers
We are working with the following link resolver intermediaries: Serials
Ex Libris, TD Net, Ebsco Industries A-Z, Goldrush and OCLC. Depending on
update schedules (which are usually monthly) Haworth content should feature
in informaworld holdings during January for most providers. Where
knowledgebases are not updated during January, the content will appear in
early February. In the interim, a list of holdings, urls and current content
access date ranges for Haworth titles is available at

Usage Statistics
Currently the usage statistics on 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
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 before 30th March 2009.

It is our hope that this transition causes minimal disruption to you and
library users. Your patience during this transition is very much appreciated
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
