UC Press is currently in the process of migrating all of our journals to a new hosting platform powered by Silverchair, with our first subscription journals having migrated in December 2019, the remainder of our subscription journals having migrated in May 2020, and our remaining open-access journals migrating over the summer and fall months.
We are taking several steps in order to help make this transition as seamless as possible for our subscribers:
- Through June, 2020 all UC Press journals content is freely accessible to all readers.
- Beginning on May 5, we automatically redirected all journal and article links from our previous platform to the new journal sites.
- We are actively working with Web-scale discovery services and link resolvers including EBSCO, OCLC, ProQuest (SFX, Ex Libris), and Google Scholar to make sure that library OPAC’s seamlessly resolve patron access to UC Press journal content on the new platform
It is possible that during this transition, access to usage reporting may be disrupted. If you are having trouble accessing usage reporting for UC Press journals for any period through April 2020, please contact UC Press customer service so we can help you access this reporting. For UC Press journal usage reporting for periods beginning in May 2020, you can access these reports through Silverchair’s usage reporting tools, or through the 3rd party vendors, you normally use to access usage reporting.
If you need additional assistance in navigating UC Press’s platform migration, please don’t hesitate to contact UC Press customer service for assistance.
