Dear Librarian,

We wrote you recently about the next release for ScienceDirect and Scopus scheduled for Saturday, December 1, 2012, and would like to give you more details about the release.

An update that we are particularly excited to announce is internet browser support to include Google Chrome for PC and now support Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox for Mac. We also will continue to support Firefox and IE 7, 8, and 9 for PC; however, with this release, we will cease to support IE6 for Scopus.

Though complete support for iOS and Android browsers has not been added, bugs have been fixed there as well and the user experience will be improved for users of mobile devices. For example, the Scopus refine results will now function properly on Safari.

While, we do not expect significant downtime, some products may experience minor disruptions: the Hub and RSS feeds for ScienceDirect and Scopus will be unavailable during the times specified below.

For Hub: the downtime by region is expected as follows:


For RSS feeds on Scopus and ScienceDirect: the downtime by region is expected as follows:
  •  New York: Saturday, December 1 at 7:30 AM EST until Saturday, December 1 10:00 AM EST
  •  Singapore: Saturday, December 1 at 8:30 PM SGT until Saturday, December 1 at 11:00 PM SGT
  •  Corresponding UTC (GMT): Saturday, December 1 at 12:30 PM until Saturday, December 1
     at 3:00 PM

For updates of what's new on ScienceDirect and Scopus, subscribe to our product news RSS feed. For the latest on ScienceDirect support and issues, subscribe to the support news RSS feed.

You can also find this information in our blog.

We encourage you to share this information with your users to minimize the impact in the event of a disruption to their research schedule.


Kind regards.
