Secure proxy server Organizations wishing to use a specialist intermediary (such as EZProxy) to authenticate users and provide secure remote access to authorized users. Only your IT department (or equivalent) can provide operational support for your secure proxy server. Important to note: We advise against web proxies as these are shared IP addresses that are not unique to your organization; therefore web proxies are not secure and cannot be used to authenticate access to Elsevier products. Through your library portal and as directed by you.
Self-managed remote access Academic institutions that do not have another secure remote access method in place; or do not have the ability or desire to generate and support Registration IDs; or want to offer authorized users a method of enabling secure remote access on their own. The most "barrier-free" method we support. Currently available only for Academic customers. This option relies on institutional email domain(s) that you supply to us. You must make reasonable efforts to ensure and enforce that authorized users do not share passwords or credentials with anyone (see sample subscription agreement section 3.2). On ScienceDirect via a "Remote access" link; user may be required to select a "self-managed remote access" department; setup is done just once.
Registration IDs via Elsevier: User name/password activated with a registration key Providing secure remote access to a defined group of authorized users with setup support from Elsevier Customer Service. Each authorized individual user receives a registration ID and password sent via email from Elsevier Customer Service. Registration IDs may have an end date for user access, which you specify. You must make reasonable efforts to ensure and enforce that authorized users do not share passwords or credentials with anyone (see sample subscription agreement section 3.2). On ScienceDirect via the "Sign in" link.
Registration IDs via Admin Tool: User name/password issued by librarian through Admin Tool Providing secure remote access to a defined group of authorized users on your own. You or an assigned administrator can configure and manage secure remote access for either individuals or groups (departments) using Elsevier's Admin Tool. Each authorized user receives a registration ID and password sent via email. Registration IDs may have an end date for user access, which you specify. You must make reasonable efforts to ensure and enforce that authorized users do not share passwords or credentials with anyone (see sample subscription agreement section 3.2).
Secure login link on your website (e.g., library portal) via a Ticketed URL link Organizations wanting to provide all authorized users secure remote access free from dependencies on external organizations or IP address authentication. Elsevier generates an identifier (Ticketed URL Origin ID) that you code into your intranet or library website. Requires coding proficiency, i.e., it cannot be done as a simple cut-and-paste task.
