2017 SSP 39th Annual Meeting
Concurrent 6F: Improving Access to Scholarly Resources …
Traditional approaches to identity and access management are failing publishers and users. Anonymous forms of authentication, like IP ranges, provide inadequate security against unauthorized use, and limit our ability to understand usage and respond with greater personalization. Requiring users to learn yet another set of credentials raises access barriers, and deters usage. These issues impact everyone at SSP, covering both paywalled content and the delivery of greater personalization around open access services.
The STM Association is leading an industry-wide effort to enable seamless access for users to legally provided content, from any place and any device, as well as greater control and analytics over network activity. This process includes the development of pilot projects to test new approaches with publishers, libraries and vendors. This session will inform you about progress in this critical area, and explore the practical implications for the user experience, publishers and other key stakeholders.
