OpenAthens and Institutional Migration
Dear Ovid Customer:
Soon we will be updating our Open Athens and Institutional Federated Login. As such you will notice a change to the main Ovid login page. Upon clicking on the combined “Open Athens | Institutional” link, the displayed page will now appear similar to this:
Typing anything in the entry box will retrieve all matching results and give you a much easier way of logging into your organization.
In addition, the jumpstarts to content such as a specific journal, for Athens (OpenAthens) and Shibboleth (Institutional) which we refer to as WAYFless links, will also change. They will both use the same format.
The current Institutional WAYFless links will change slightly. Currently, we use the following base URL: https://openathens.ovid.com/secure=ssl/home.oa? and that will change to https://openathens.ovid.com/OAKeystone/deeplink?
OpenAthens links such as https://ovidsp.ovid.com/athens/ovidweb.cgi? T=JS&NEWS=n&CSC=Y&PAGE=toc&D=ovft&AN=00002030-000000000-00000 will continue to work for a short time after the update. However, we encourage you to change them as soon as possible to the new format. For example, the new version of the link above should look something like the following:
Should you need help constructing these links, or if you have any questions, please contact our Support team at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will communicate a specific date for this change in a future message.
