New Function

Redesigned, refreshed, responsive: your new Taylor & Francis Online


Taylor & Francis Online is relaunching with a new design, fully responsive interface and significant functional improvements for researchers, readers and learned societies.

  • Prominent journal branding makes it easy for readers to identify and access key journals  and find related and key content in our easy to read new “card” design.
  • Improved video display provides more impact for video abstracts and video content.
  • Clear access indicators allow Librarians and library users to easily see what they can access with coloured icons clearly displayed as corner tabs at all levels.

If you need any further assistance, please have a look at the Video Walkthroughs.

All users with a valid library card of the National Library, University, LIST or LIH have remote access to all Social Science and Humanities Journals on the Taylor and Francis platform.

ScienceDirect to cease support of Internet Explorer 8 on January 1, 2016

Effective January 1, 2016, ScienceDirect will no longer support Internet Explorer 8 (IE8).

Why are we ceasing support of IE8?
We are following Microsoft’s directive to focus our support on newer, officially-supported IE browser versions. Microsoft announced in 2014 that, as of January 2016, it would only support the most recent IE browser version with technical support and security updates. We strongly encourage our customers to follow Microsoft’s directive as well by updating to more recent versions of IE. Additionally, users can move to the latest versions of the Chrome or Firefox browsers for an optimal ScienceDirect experience.

By removing IE8 from our support list, we will be able to provide the following future enhancements:

  • Remove current IE8 security issues
  • Enhance existing security measures across all browsers
  • Add support for new browser technologies
  • Add responsive design to aid use of ScienceDirect across devices
  • Improve accessibility to better enable access to people with diverse abilities

Relaunch Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy

REP-online-bannerRoutledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy was relaunched on 22nd April 2015.

To maintain REP Online as philosophy’s premier resource for research and reference, Routledge has a program of regular additions of new articles and revisions of existing content. This enables REP to reflect the most important developments in the field.

Since launching REP Online in 2001 over 300 new and revised articles have been added – expanding the Encyclopedia into fresh subject areas as well as increasing and updating coverage of established fields.

New to REP in 2015 are the archival versions of articles. It is now possible to view previous versions of an article that has been revised: earlier versions can be accessed via the tabs at the top of the articles, labelled ‘v1’, ‘v2’, etc., with v1 being the oldest version.

Also new in 2015 are the Playlists, guest-edited selections of articles that offer a personal angle on the rich and diverse content of REP Online. Compiled by leading scholars, they spotlight articles in new and emerging topics, or topics that have been overlooked. In REP’s first Playlist, General Editor Tim Crane provides the ideal introduction to REP Online and to philosophy.

Further enhancements

  • All articles begin with an accessible summary in bold, free to view for all users and significantly improving discoverability
  • Articles can be saved into labelled shortlists for easy reference  rep-shortlist button
  • Search has been improved to enable results  to be filtered on a greater number of facets

Scopus interface improvements

Since launching a more streamlined interface in February, the Scopus Team has been working on additional site developments that include enhancing Scopus analysis tools as well as improving ORCID functionality.

Taking a close look at the Scopus analysis tools, the team made some changes that better support day-to-day research tasks. As a result all analysis tools have been redesigned to provide a more consistent experience across Scopus. Specifically, these 3 tools have been improved and renamed and now include new features such as the option to export charts and graphs.

Old Scopus name New Scopus name Location on Scopus
Analyze Results Analyze Search Results Document Search Result page
Author Evaluator Analyze Author Output Author Details page
Analyze Journals Compare Journals Main search page

Cairn : Une interface améliorée

Plus claire, plus aérée, plus facile d’utilisation, la nouvelle version de vous permet d’accéder plus aisément aux articles que vous recherchez. Elle améliore aussi le confort de lecture. Les utilisateurs de sont très divers ; leurs comportements de lecture également. Avec cette nouvelle version, Cairn tente de répondre au mieux aux différentes attentes.

Une navigation optimisée s’adapte aux nouveaux usages (notamment à l’apparition de nouveaux terminaux portables) : la nouvelle version de notre site est plus claire et aérée. Elle comprend notamment un espace de lecture élargi pour une meilleure lisibilité.

Comme certains sites de presse quotidienne, s’enrichit d’un nouveau mode de lecture, le mode « zen » : le texte des articles de revues et des chapitres d’ouvrages que nous diffusons peut ainsi être affiché en plein écran, en ôtant tout ce qui, sur le web, peut gêner la lecture. Le lecteur se trouve alors dans des dispositions idéales pour se concentrer et assimiler de nouvelles connaissances. Lire de façon prolongée sur écran n’a jamais été plus facile.

La saisie semi-automatique : chercher mieux, chercher plus
Le moteur de recherche évolue grâce à l’intégration d’un outil de saisie semi-automatique. Il est désormais à même de vous suggérer automatiquement les expressions, les titres de revues ou les noms d’auteurs qui correspondent à votre recherche.

Les « encyclopédies de poche » disponibles en format HTML
Les collections des « Que sais-je ? » (Presses Universitaires de France) et celle des « Repères » (La Découverte) sont proposées depuis plusieurs années sur le portail Cairn ; elles sont ainsi accessibles au format numérique dans de nombreux centres de documentation, bibliothèques et universités. Mais, jusqu’à présent, ces « encyclopédies de poche » étaient uniquement disponibles via un feuilleteur ; désormais elles sont aussi disponibles au format HTML. La lecture est ainsi plus confortable, particulièrement à partir des tablettes et des smartphones.

ProQuest implements CAPTCHAs

Some days ago, ProQuest implemented CAPTCHAs because they have detected bots attempting to download information from their databases without permission. Using CAPTCHA will help protect the rights of copyright holders by ensuring that information is accessed only by authorized users.
Please find below some FAQs concerning CAPTCHAs in ProQuest Databases:

What is a CAPTCHA?
A CAPTCHA (or Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) is used to detect if activity is coming from a “real” human – not from an automated script, commonly referred to as a bot.

Example CAPTCHA:




Why has Proquest introduced the use of CAPTCHAs?
We have introduced CAPTCHAs because, like many other online services, we’ve detected bots attempting to download copyrighted information.

Which products do the CAPTCHAs impact?
This will apply to all databases on the ProQuest platform (e.g Factiva, ProQuest Central, ProQuest Dissertations and Theses, etc.).

When will ProQuest users see CAPTCHAs?
We have analyzed usage on the platform and picked a usage threshold for CAPTCHAs that is designed to minimize the impact for our users. We anticipate that the vast majority of users will not see CAPTCHA prompts, and these will occur in a very small percentage of users’ research sessions.

Can customers follow links to our content without entering a CAPTCHA?
Customers following links to access some content types may see CAPTCHAs immediately. For example, a user following a direct link to a document stored in a browser bookmark may see a CAPTCHA before being able to access the document. Likewise, a customer accessing content via Summon, direct links in a Learning Management System, or an email alert may be required to enter a CAPTCHA before viewing documents.

Is this a permanent measure?
Data security is continually evolving, and ProQuest is always looking for better ways to enhance the security of our services. At this stage, the use of a CAPTCHA has been identified as an effective security method. We will continue to evaluate additional security enhancements.

Are CAPTCHAs accessible for the visually impaired?
Yes. We are using Google Technology to generate our CAPTCHAs. More information on accessibility is available here.
