Blackwell Publishing Announces New Version of Blackwell Synergy

Blackwell Publishing ( has announced the launch of a new version of Blackwell Synergy (, its online journals service. The site has a new design and improved navigation so readers can better locate journals in their subject area and link between related articles. Blackwell Synergy currently holds 368 of Blackwell Publishing's science, medicine, technology, psychology, and economics journals. During the rest of this year, a further 250 humanities and social science journals will be added to the service, which is a source for highly cited peer-reviewed journals published on behalf of academic and professional societies.

A new QuickSearch feature enables readers to search for keywords within one journal, all journals on Blackwell Synergy, and journals from other publishers. For example, a reader of a Blackwell article can find other abstracts on the same topic in PubMed (MEDLINE) within just two clicks and without having to leave the original article. The article reference lists now include dynamically updated CrossRef and external database links. My Synergy is a new area in which registered users can administer their subscriptions, add favorite journals and articles, and set up their e-mail table-of-contents alerts.

The new version of Blackwell Synergy was developed in collaboration with technology partner Atypon Systems ( During its 4-year agreement with Blackwell Publishing, Atypon has been responsible for Blackwell Synergy's content management, hosting, managed services, software support, and security.
