LWW Online journals maintenance April 18th

April 18, 2024: Journals available through LWW Online will be unavailable this evening starting at 8:30pm CDT for about an hour while the publisher performs maintenance on the site.

Any links we have to journals on LWW Online are in addition to our primary access through Ovid, or the LWW Total Access Collection, so hopefully the impact of this maintenance will be minimal.

If you have any questions about this or any other Library resources, please contact us.

New way to access Quintessence journals

We are happy to report that through the great generosity of Quintessence Publishing we are able to provide easier access to their journals.

Now, instead of having to log in with a password, you can get to the full text of Quintessence journals by logging in via EZproxy when prompted. The records in our online catalog for the affected journals are updated to reflect this change, and you can get to those journals by clicking on the links on this page.

There are some issues with the links on the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List, but we will have these updated to use the new access method as soon as we can.

This new access method is accompanied by a revamp of many of the Quintessence journal sites. There are a couple of things to look out for when trying to access the full text of articles on these new pages.

First, to get the PDF of an article, click the “Full Text” link underneath the article’s title to the left, and ignore the greyed out PDF link to the right:

Second, to browse through the issues of a title, scroll down when on the journal’s main page:

We hope this makes accessing content from the Quintessence journals easier. We would also like to thank Quintessence Publishing for their generosity in providing complimentary access to many of the journals we receive from them.

Problems accessing Quintessence journals online

UPDATE: Please see our post from September 15, 2023, regarding resolution of this issue

Quintessence Publishing recently updated their website, and we are having problems logging into the online content for journals on the new site. Most links from the records in the catalog go to the old site, where the logins work correctly. However, if you are redirected to the new site, please note you are unable to log in to get articles.

We are working with our subscription agent to resolve the issue and will update when we know more.

Please let us know if you need help with this or any other Library resources.

FIXED: Problems with Thieme journals

UPDATE April 25, 2023: The issues with Thieme journals has been fixed.

Original post April 24, 2023: Thieme is having problems with the online versions of the journals we get from them, and at present only the tables of contents of the issues and abstracts of the articles are available.

We will update when we have more information.

If you need any help with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.

New journals from The Royal Society

In addition to the Library’s existing subscriptions to Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences and the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, we now have access to the current issues of Biology Letters, Interface Focus, and Journal of the Royal Society Interface.

Previously, the three new journals were available after a one-year embargo, but our subscriptions to these titles now mean you can access the most recent content from these journals.

If you need help with these or any other Library resources, please contact us.

More journals available from the American Chemical Society

We now have a subscription to the American Chemical Society (ACS) Core Plus Package. This package has brought access to fifteen new journals, as well as adding current access to five journals already in the Library’s collection.

Some of the journals included in this collection are ACS Nano, Journal of Physical Chemistry Sections A, B, and C, and Environmental Science & Technology. These titles are added to our existing subscriptions to Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, Journal of the American Chemical Society, ACS Chemical Neuroscience, and Journal of Proteome Research.

UPDATED: Access to Bone and Joint Journal

February 14, 2023 Update: The issue has been resolved, so you will be able to access this journal on campus and whenever a link goes through EZproxy. You can, however, still use the direct OpenAthens link if you’d like. Please let us know if you run into any problems.

If you need to access Bone and Joint Journal and its previous titles, please use this link to get to the content when both on and off campus: https://go.openathens.net/redirector/lsuhsc.edu?url=https%3A%2F%2Fboneandjoint.org.uk%2Fjournal%2Fbjj. You will need to log in using your LSUHSC-NO email address and current password.

If you attempt to get to this journal on campus or off campus via any Library link that goes through EZproxy, we are currently unable to get to any subscribed content.

If you need assistance with this or any other Library resource, please contact us.

UPDATE: Troubles accessing articles via LibKey fixed

October 12, 2022 Update: This problem has been resolved, so you should be prompted to log in when needed while getting journal articles when connected to LSUHSC-Secure, the VPN, Citrix, or when in the 1542 building. If you run into any issues, please contact us with the citation of the article you’re having difficulty getting to as well as what network you’re using on your computer.

We are aware there is a problem that is affecting accessing articles via the LibKey products when connected via LSUHSC-Secure, the VPN, Citrix, or when in the 1542 building.

The authentication that is needed to get to articles is not being carried over to the links LibKey provides at this time. We are working with LibKey support to resolve the problem.

Until it is fixed, if you run into a problem when accessing an article via the Library’s link resolver or directly using any of the LibKey products, you can go to the journal’s web site using the Library Catalog or the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List. You will be prompted to log in as needed to access articles.

If you need any help with this or any other Library resources, contact us.

September 16, 2022 UPDATE: The issue has been fixed, so all Wiley journals should be available both on and off campus with no added problems. Let us know if you have any questions.

May 26, 2022 UPDATE: The problem has been fixed. You should now be able to access all Wiley journals both on and off campus. If you have any trouble, though, please let us know.

Original Post:

All Wiley journals are not easily available on campus or via any link that goes through EZproxy for off campus access. If you attempt to get the full text of any Wiley journal through any of these methods, you will be asked to log in or pay.

Logging in directly to Wiley Online Library using OpenAthens is a temporary workaround. Follow these steps to log in when off campus:

  • Click Login/Register on the right of the window
Screenshot of login screen
  • Then click Institutional Login
Screenshot of login screen
  • Click Sign in with your OpenAthens account
  • In the box to the right, type lsu and select LSU Health Sciences Center Library
  • You should see this screen where you enter your LSUHSC-NO full email address and current network password
Screenshot of login screen

If you are on campus, follow the same steps above, but the login screen will look like this where you enter just your LSUHSC-NO username (the first part of your email before the @lsuhsc.edu) and current password:

We will update as soon as we have more information about this problem, but if you need assistance with accessing these journals or with any other Library resources, please contact us.
