KnovelThe ebook aggregator Knovel is pulling all its Wiley-Blackwell titles at the end of March. They had pulled access earlier, but restored it temporarily.

The reason behind the pulling is that the agreement between Wiley and Knovel was not renewed for 2014. This is a decision between these two companies: the publisher Wiley and the platform Knovel.
