Platform Changes

Publishers of electronic journals, books, databases, etc. may use a third party service provider to host their content. Examples of platform service providers include Atypon, Highwire, Scitation and Silverchair.

Periodically, publishers move their content from one platform to another, and this migration usually triggers a number of adjustments that we, the subscriber, need to make to continue providing access to our subscribed content to our users. These changes may include:

  • a different EZProxy configuration stanza,
  • a new link resolver (SFX) target or discovery service collection,
  • a new administrative account, etc.

To view publisher platform changes and where we are in the migration process, see our Publisher-Platform Changes Tracking sheet. Anyone at UMass with this link can view this file.
