US Taylor & Francis Group successfully completes Share More Easily book pilot in partnership with ReadCube - 16 Oct 2017

Academic publisher Taylor & Francis Group has completed a successful pilot of its Share More Easily program in partnership with ReadCube, a Digital Science technology company.

Launched in June 2017, the program was designed specifically to support Taylor & Francis' book authors and offered special sharing links to free-to-read full-text versions of their complete books. These links could then be easily shared across social media, scholarly collaboration networks, or emailed to those in their network - opening new channels to promote visibility and extend the reach of work across the academic community.

The Share More Easily pilot included 600 titles across HSS and STM: 300 received sharing links to promote their work and 300 did not - the latter acting as a control group. Initial feedback surveys to authors and editors have resulted in positive feedback with 100% of respondents highlighting the importance of sharing full-text in the promotion of their published work and 98% confirming they would use these links if available to them in the future.

Powered by ReadCube's sharing technology, the Share More Easily pilot allowed instant view-only access to the shared book directly within any web browser. Throughout the pilot, authors also had ability to track how their published content is being used and shared online using Altmetric data. Originally designed for individual scholarly articles, this was the first deployment of ReadCube’s expanded sharing support for books.

Over the coming months, Taylor & Francis will continue to work closely with their author community and integrate feedback from the pilot, to inform next steps.

US Project MUSE expands its relationship with Google Scholar to implement Campus Activated Subscriber Access - 16 Oct 2017

Project MUSE, the trusted source for humanities and social science content from university presses and scholarly publishers, has expanded its relationship with Google Scholar to include implementation of Campus Activated Subscriber Access (CASA), providing seamless access to subscribed or purchased content for an institution's users even when off campus or from a mobile device.

An extension of Google Scholar's Subscriber Links service, CASA makes note of a user's institutional affiliation when they access content from an authorised on-campus location, and then enables continued access to their library's MUSE journal and book holdings from home or when using a device not connected to the institution's network.

CASA makes it easy for students and researchers to access MUSE content from anywhere without the need for proxy/VPN or other off-campus authentication systems that can act as a barrier between users and the rich scholarly materials their library holds. CASA helps libraries provide their users with the most immediate access to acquired content while supporting licensing agreements. MUSE's participating publishers will benefit from users having frictionless access to the content on the MUSE platform, encouraging and increasing usage of the authorised versions.

No action is required by the subscribing institution to enable CASA; users utilising Google Scholar will, once their affiliation is recorded from on-campus, experience seamless access to their library's licensed MUSE content at home and on mobile. Users periodically refresh their CASA affiliation by visiting Google Scholar from a campus location, and usage of MUSE articles and book chapters facilitated by CASA is included in an institution's COUNTER statistics.

UK OpenAthens launches its cloud-based content provider solution, OpenAthens Cloud - 16 Oct 2017

OpenAthens, the international identity and access management software provider for the information industry, officially launched its cloud-based content provider solution at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Content providers no longer need to wrestle with the frustrations of implementing and maintaining complex access management applications based on SAML. OpenAthens Cloud enables federated single sign-on via OpenID Connect: a standard protocol for the secure, lightweight transfer of authentication and user attributes, which has seen rapid adoption by global brands such as Google and Microsoft.

OpenAthens Cloud enables entry into the OpenAthens International Federation and national SAML federations across the world. It offers a fast and reliable connection to digital content and services as it is hosted in multiple global regions. Millions of individuals from thousands of organisations across the world can securely access multiple online resources with their everyday username and password, anytime and anywhere. User identities are managed by the customer, not the content provider, helping to comply with data protection legislation. As a cloud-based service, customers can also make cost and efficiency savings on server space, energy consumption, and scalability.

The service is ISO 27001 security standard compliant and security risks are mitigated through penetration testing. OpenAthens manages the required metadata and certificates in the cloud, leaving service providers to focus on delivering the best end user experience: for example, tracking engagement with individual users to shape the content and services they receive, or developing services based on individual roles or specific locations and groups.

OpenAthens Cloud is developer-friendly as it is far less complex to implement than locally-hosted solutions, and requires fewer specialist skills, saving time and money. It is more versatile, offering support for native and mobile apps as well as web-based applications. Its simple user interface tools allow administrators to manage the login process hassle-free. For those who are looking for a simpler approach to federated single sign-on, or who want to move away from less secure IP recognition, OpenAthens Cloud provides the perfect solution.
