Access to academic content is difficult, confusing and inconsistent across the different content platforms. Researchers and learners struggle to navigate the complex ecosystem of tools and platforms available to them and opt for alternative sources like ResearchGate or Open Access journals.
To improve the current user experience publishers will need to work together, making it easier for learners and researchers to access content available to them.
Our 10 UX recommendations explore the access experience for users associated with a library, not individual subscribers. Most of what’s covered here apply to publishers and service providers offering a single-sign-on institutional access option on their platforms. Building on the NISO approved RA21 recommended practices, this blog aims to help publishers navigate the world of access options.
