RA21 will enable publishers to provide convenient one-click access to a wide variety of scenarios, such as delivery of subscribed content, institution-based pricing for payment of APCs for Open Access, or access to research collaboration systems.  The service works by streamlining the user experience with federated Single Sign-On solutions, such as Shibboleth and OpenAthens, and will be ready for implementation by publishers later in 2019. 

RA21 has also identified a series of important recommended best-practices for improving the usability of publisher access interfaces, such as log-in user experience.

This session provides an overview of these important upcoming changes, and will provide publishers with the information and next steps they need to deliver a more seamless access experience for their users.
These recommendations are based on collaborative research that RA21 has undertaken with a broad coalition of stakeholders and were published as a draft NISO Recommended Practice in April 2019.
