Researchers will now see an ‘Access through your institution’ button clearly marked on ScienceDirect. When they click on the button, if their institution has an authorized subscription to ScienceDirect, they are authenticated by their institution and can use ScienceDirect services in the usual way.
SeamlessAccess remembers a user’s choice of institution, so they don’t have to repeat the institutional selection process when they want to move from one participating site, to another. It does this securely, preserves user privacy, and adheres to the National Information Standards Organization’s (NISO)Recommended Practice. It enables researchers to “seamlessly” navigate across multiple platforms with only a single click of the ‘Access through your institution’ button.
