Problems with off-site access to Nature journals

We currently have no off-site access to Nature journals due to technical issues, but we hope to have access restored within the next few days.

On-site access is unaffected.

Access to Best Practice, Clinical Evidence and Drugs and Therapeutics Bulletin – 2nd April 2012

We  are currently experiencing problems accessing content on Best Practice, Clinical Evidence and Drugs and Therapeutics Bulletin.  Those trying to access content see the message:  Although your institution, St George’s University of London, subscribes to part of Best Practice, the subscription does not cover this content.

Please be assured  that we are working with BMJ to restore access as soon as possible and we are not cancelling this subscription.

Access to BMJ.com and the BMJ Journals Collection is unaffected.

Important changes to the way you access RefWorks

Those of you who use RefWorks will know that to access your references you are currently logging in via the Athens Credentials option.

As of 27th February it will be possible to access RefWorks via the Institutional option and set up a new RefWorks account associated with this login route.  This has been done to simplify what has previously been a complex process.

Athens access will not be available after 31st July 2012 and so all RefWorks users need to create a new account via My Institutions Credentials (Shibboleth) and transfer all references and customised output styles, etc. from their old Athens RefWorks account.

Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

Please note that you will not be able to access your RefWorks database via Athens after July 31st 2012 so you must transfer your database before this date.
