Wiley Online Library
Wiley Online Library provides UB patrons with full-text (page image) access to articles from nearly all journals (over 1,500 titles) published by John Wiley & Sons, a major scholarly publisher, based on a large package deal funded by the UB Libraries. In additon to the journals, we have purchased access to a number of online books and major reference works, such as Burger's Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Discovery. However, we have online access to only a small percentage of more than 15,000 books published by Wiley. In many cases, we may have a print copy that can be easily located by searching our Library Catalog.
Search queries are run against the entire digital libray: articles, books, databases, and protocols. However, the full-text is available only for those items that UB has subscribed to and for a fairly small number of open access articles. Wiley has publishing arrangments with a large number of societies such as the American Geophysical Union. In some cases, separate subscription arrangements are required to access this content. When in doubt about what can be accessed in full-text, search the journal title in our electronic journal database.
Through major acquistions such as Blackwell Publishing, Wiley has expanded well beyond its original focus on science, technology, and business to cover most disciplines including those in the social sciences and humanities.
In many cases, Wiley has scanned in deep journal archives back to the first volume of journal ever published. This archival material is searchable and has browsable table of contents with free display of the abstract. However, full-text access to this pre-1996 material requires large additional fees that generally are cost prohibitive for our university.
Typically 1996 to the present.
Various units of the UB Libraries subscribe to the print editions of some Wiley journals. For call numbers of individual journal titles, consult the UB Libraries Catalog. Note that the full-text of articles are available even for those journals for which UB does not have a print subscription.
