(16 October 2014, London) RCN Publishing announced today that it is ending its long standing arrangements to provide access to current full text journal content via third party database and aggregation services. The decision to end these arrangements is in keeping with RCN Publishing’s policy to serve users directly, providing access via its own journals platform, Literatum from Atypon.
The arrangement with OVID ended earlier in 2014 and access via EBSCO’s database services finishes in November 2014. Agreements with both Cengage Learning and ProQuest ended in 2012 and 2013 respectively. Current full text content in RCN Publishing journals will only be available via RCN Publishing’s own journal site at www.rcnpublishing.com. Users will however still be able to access back file content using their existing database subscriptions.
