United Kingdom, June 2009 – Emerald Group Publishing is pleased to announce that access to Emerald online products is Shibboleth compliant for members of the UK Access Management Federation.
Shibboleth is an open source software package which enables single sign on across various domains, removing the need for multiple passwords. This allows institutions to authorise and authenticate the user.
John Peters, CEO of Emerald, comments: "Having usage and the dissemination of knowledge at heart, we are constantly looking at ways to make accessing our content quicker and easier through new technologies. This development makes it easier for users to access our content and for libraries to encourage usage, which means further dissemination of the rich and relevant research published in Emerald journals."
Emerald joins a number of publishers that are now Shibboleth compliant. The company prides itself on staying up to date with industry changes, and believes that by doing so it will provide simpler and easier way for users to access Emerald products.
