Ingenta Connect Platform Integrates Google Scholar’s Campus Activated Subscriber Access

 

Oxford, UK January 9, 2018Leading academic journals aggregator Ingenta Connect announces the integration this week of Google Scholar’s Campus Activated Subscriber Access (CASA) service. 

Google Scholar’s Campus Activated Subscriber Access is a new service which expands on Google’s subscriber Links programme. It enables researchers to access full text PDFs from journals to which their institution has subscribed, even when they are working remotely, and not using a university IP address.

Ingenta Connect already functions with Google’s Subscriber Links service, so institutional users can link directly from Google Scholar search results to subscribed content – but only if they are on campus. Campus Activated Subscriber Access extends this feature off-site. Researchers discovering content via Google Scholar which their affiliated institution has the right to use can access this same content off-campus as they do on-campus. No additional off-campus login is necessary, resulting in an easier, smoother way for legitimate users to access the content hosted on Ingenta Connect, wherever they might be.

Byron Russell, head of Ingenta Connect, said: “We are delighted to have integrated the CASA service into Ingenta Connect. We feel this innovative application will help drive researchers to make full use of the massive range of publishers’ content hosted on Ingenta Connect, helping them make the most of content to which their institutional libraries have subscribed.”
