I encouraged my TOM students to check out the Investext database for their term projects. Imagine my surprise to learn that Thomson, the publisher, thinks that the world is Windows only. Here is a note from the UCSD librarian.
Hi Roger. On the new Thomson One interface/platform, Investext really only works with IE.
Other browsers may now load at all, or have functionality/displays that are hobbled.
P.S. Here is what MIT library says: “Microsoft Internet Explorer is required. Thomson One will not work with other browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.”
We have to “love” the academic publishing industry. Still trying to saddle everything they provide with DRM. UC San Diego and the whole UC system are moving toward an open publishing approach – I expect most of my colleagues will adopt it, although only slowly.
