Oxford Journals go mobile

21 September 2011

Oxford University Press’s full range of scholarly journal content can now be accessed from almost anywhere, thanks to new mobile-optimized websites for all Oxford journals.

The collection of more than 250 sites provides access via multiple mobile devices and marks the latest development in OUP’s efforts to bring the highest quality research to the widest possible audience. With a range of features specially optimized for those looking to access content on the move, the sites follow Oxford Journals’ long tradition of broadening the electronic dissemination of its content.

The mobile-optimized sites provide access to all current, archived, and Advance Access journals content for researchers using mobile devices which support Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, and BlackBerry operating systems.  Visitors are able to take advantage of a range of mobile features including a mobile-friendly quick search page, email forwarding functionality, and personalization and authentication sign-in options. Further support is being developed for Symbian OS and Windows Mobile, and mobile applications for specific journals are also planned.

Charlotte Capanni Head of Academic Journals Marketing at OUP, said “Mobile-optimized websites for our journals allow academics, students, and researchers to access the content they need from virtually anywhere via their smartphones. Mobile optimization also enables users to look up a reference quickly or access the latest articles published in their favourite journal.”

Users logging in through an institution's WiFi service will be able to access that institution's subscriptions; individual subscribers will be able to access subscriptions through username and password authentication.
