Frankfurt Book Fair logoMeet us virtually at Frankfurt this October

Due to the continued disruption caused by Covid-19, we’ve made the decision to participate virtually at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair.

Join our Piracy webinar with Elsevier

‘Kill two birds with one stone. Beat the pirates and give users the experience they deserve’

Monday 12 October, 2 pm BST/3 pm CEST/ 9 am EDT

Book your free place

If it wasn’t the case before, ‘digital first’ and remote access to content and services is now the strategy of choice for most places of learning. If you’ve spent a ton of cash on developing online content, the last thing you want is someone to come along and steal it. Unfortunately, piracy is very much alive and kicking.

So why are learners and researchers still turning to free and pirate sites for content?

Our presenters will discuss why it is important to put a simple, seamless user access journey firmly on your product roadmap, ensuring that ‘login via your institution’ is the first login choice. We’ll also explain how OpenAthens can work with publisher’s product and development teams to improve the user access experience.


  • Sari Frances, director of content protection services, Elsevier
  • Kieran Prince, international sales manager

CEOs, product and platform managers, UX and UI managers working for publishers, platform providers, research tools and other service providers.
