Problems with accessing Taylor and Francis Online

July 2, 2015

We are currently experiencing problems with accessing full-text content on the Taylor and Francis Online platform. You may find that you are unable to access content that normally forms part of our subscription, or that you are unable to access selected articles from what you should be able to access. This is a nationwide problem that is affecting many Taylor and Francis customers, and as yet, we do not know when the problem might be resolved. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Taylor and Francis: scheduled maintenance tomorrow (31st March)

March 30, 2015

There is some scheduled maintenance to the Taylor and Francis Online platform tomorrow Tuesday 31st March, which will mean that a number of features, notably the ‘My Account’ feature will not be available between 7 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. It will still be possible to access and download articles. After the maintenance has taken place, you may be required to change your personal account password due a change in Taylor and Francis’ password security policy. Note that this applies only to any personal account that you may have set up: general access is, as always, via your Bolton network ID and password.

As it’ll make me feel better on this rather cold morning (spring? Really? Ha!), please indulge me a little grumble about this particular maintenance: who knows, maybe Taylor and Francis read this blog… I only found out about this when I checked the main Taylor and Francis site just now, as I had received an e-mail about the changes to the password security policy. While this is clearly important, and we should be pleased that a publisher takes the security of our accounts seriously, I had received no other notification, so I must apologise for the short notice.

If you have any difficulties accessing electronic resources, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Subject Help Desk!
