Well, it had to happen: the sun has gone in, and with it, one of our databases isn’t working. We are experiencing difficulties accessing ScienceDirect: both on-campus and off-campus access is affected and no access is currently possible. The problem has been reported, and is being worked on by the suppliers, who at present are not able to give a time when this problem might be resolved. The problem seems to be affecting many UK customers. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. Scopus is unaffected.
