Ease Your Researchers’ and Students’ Authentication and Access on Nature.com: New Developments for Seamless Access | 4th November 2019
Springer Nature is in the process of implementing a new institutional authentication and access journey on Nature.com, making use of SeamlessAccess.org (formerly RA21: Resources Access in the 21st Century) services.
Sometimes researchers can find it difficult to gain access to a library's subscriptions on a publisher’s site when they are outside of their institution’s network IP ranges. Researchers are required to authenticate themselves as members of your institution by using a proxy, federated authentication, or through other ways of authentication.
Laird Barrett, Product Manager for the Springer Nature Identity team, talks about the problem researchers face. Laird demonstrates and explains the solution we are implementing to address the problem and gives insight into our plans for the new experience.
