Problems accessing Springer eJournals (UHNS users)

We are experiencing problems accessing our ejournals provided via Springer, using NHS Athens. This includes current year access to the following titles:
  • Canadian journal of anesthesia
  • Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology
  • Neuroradiology
  • Pediatric Radiology
As you log into the Springer site you seem to keep looping around the login process and can’t get into the full-text.

We have reported the problem to the publishers and our providers. They don’t seem to be able to fix the problem and are looking at providing us with an alternate access route. We will let you know as soon as they have done this.

European Immunisation Week

20th April - 27th April 2014
In recent weeks it has been reported that there has been a resurgence of diseases once thought to be almost eliminated.  European Immunisation Week promotes the core message that immunisation of every child is vital to prevent diseases and protect life.  The slogan ‘Prevent. Protect. Immunize’ carries this message across the WHO European Region. The goal of European Immunization Week is to increase vaccination coverage by raising awareness of the importance of immunisation. It is a vital regional initiative, led and coordinated by the WHO Regional Office for Europe.
