Event description

Description

RA21 (Resource Access for the 21st Century) is a joint STM and NISO initiative aimed at facilitating a seamless user experience for consumers of scientific communication when they seek access to scholarly resources, by optimizing protocols across key stakeholder groups, such as Libraries, ID management services, platform and content providers and publishers.

The project aims to:

  • Recommend new solutions for access strategies beyond IP recognition practices
  • Explain the standard measures that publishers, libraries and end-users should undertake for better protocols and security
  • Test and improve solutions by organizing pilots in a variety of environments for the creation of best practice recommendations

This morning event will provide an update on the progress and results emerging from RA21 to date, including an in-depth look at the issues addressed within the User Experience (UX) aspect of the project.

The morning will be followed by a networking lunch.

For anyone unable to attend in person, the morning session will be made available remotely. Please ensure that you select the ‘Remote participant’ option when registering so that the relevant access information can be sent out to you.

Who should attend?

Library representatives, publishers, educational access management federations, vendors and service providers.
