To link to a full-text requires an additional step - it requires a link resolver! Trying to keep things simple, it tells the system where to point the full-text request to (ie send the person to Wiley, Ebsco etc). We're looking to introduce this and I'm fairly confident we can do it! It should work like this:
- We extract the DOI for an article - which we've done already!
- An institution tells TRIP which full text holdings it has (e.g. NEJM, Thorax etc) and also some details of their link resolver.
- A user comes to TRIP from a given institution and carries out a search and we display a full-text link to all articles the user has full-text access to. They click on the link and they've got access to the full-text (based on an authentication system).
But, bottom line, does easy linking out to full-text excite people?
