OpenAthens Sets Goals for Helping Publishers

OpenAthens released the OpenAthens Publisher Manifesto, which is designed to ensure that the company’s products and services evolve along with customers’ needs and that the company is properly supporting publishers in their management of access to knowledge. The manifesto is composed of the following five actions:
  1. Providing the best end-user experience possible at the heart of authentication into e-resources and applications.
  2. Enabling single sign-on that is simple to set up and easy to maintain within publishing platforms.
  3. The use of common standards across SAML [security assertion markup language] and other authentication protocols to deliver interoperability.
  4. Providing a forum where all parties involved in access and authentication into eresources can share views and challenge orthodoxies.
  5. Recognising that change is now constant, and that our services must continually evolve to meet new challenges.

For more information, read the press release.
