Things are going well with our integration of OpenAthens into Trip (as announced at the end of last year). We’re on schedule to test from the end of January with a view of rolling this out in February.

Given this was funded by Health Education England (HEE) we are also tying it in with HEE’s purchase of LibKey for the NHS in England – so the two will be released together. LibKey is a great tool to link users with the full-text subscription their institutions subscribe to. Putting it another way, if your institution subscribes to a journal, Trip can see (via LibKey) if you have access to the article in the search results and insert a link directly to the full-text. It’s quick and seamless. We’ve supported LibKey in Trip for over a year and our users love it. When we roll this out we will automatically be adding the link-out credentials to over 250 new insitutions.
