Fixed: Troubles with direct access to Science via OpenAthens

UPDATE: As of September 15, 2021, you can log in using OpenAthens when accessing Science directly. Please contact us if you are encountering any problems.

Original post:

If you need to get to the journals Science or Science Translational Medicine, please be aware that direct access via OpenAthens is currently unavailable. If you go directly to Science’s new site at https://www.science.org and try to log in using OpenAthens credentials, you will be unable to access any content. You will need to follow links that go through the Library’s EZproxy service in order to get to the full text of these journals. Links from the Library’s catalog, E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List, and our link resolver and LibKey products will route you through the proper channels to access the content.

To get to any articles from Science, please use this link: https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url=https://www.science.org/loi/science. For Science Translational Medicine this link will get you to that journal’s content: https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url=https://www.science.org/loi/stm. You can log in using your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password by clicking the first link on the page for either title.

If you need assistance with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.

Update: Problems accessing JAMA Network journals off campus

Update: As of Friday, August 27, the error that was preventing access to any JAMA Network journal content from off campus via a Library EZproxy link has been resolved, but we are still seeing odd page displays.

When you follow one of the Library’s link to any JAMA Network title, you may see some icons on page not displaying correctly. Fortunately, the link to download PDFs of articles is displaying properly:

Until this issue is completely fixed you may encounter other problems, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help. You may also continue to access JAMA Network titles directly via OpenAthens as described below.

Original post:

There is an issue that is affecting all subscribers to titles included in the JAMA Network family of journals when trying to access off campus via EZproxy. For us this means that you will encounter this error message when trying to access any JAMA title off campus from the Library’s Catalog, E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List, EDS Health Discovery service, and any LibKey products:

Screenshot of error message

JAMA Network is aware of the issue and is currently working to resolve it. If you are on campus via a wired connection you will not see this problem, but if you are connected via the LSUHSC-Secure wireless network you will still have this issue although you are on campus. This same issue also extends to any connections via the VPN.

Until it is fixed, you can access JAMA Network journals from off campus by going directly to https://jamanetwork.com/ and logging in via Open Athens.

First, when at the site’s home page, click on “Sign In” to the right of the screen:

Then, click the link to “OpenAthens” :

At the next screen, enter “LSU” in the box to the right and then click the link for “LSU Health Sciences Center” :

Update: Link resolver working in Web of Science

UPDATE: The link resolver is again working in both the new and classic versions of Web of Science. However, if you wish to use LibKey Nomad with Web of Science, you will need to use the instructions below on how to access the classic version.

The WebBridge LR link resolver is currently not working in both versions of Web of Science. This problem has been reported and we will update when the functionality has been restored.

The new version is now the default view for Web of Science and LibKey Nomad does not work with it now, unfortunately. With the link resolver not working in either version, getting to full text of articles is a bit more difficult, but you can still access the old version of Web of Science where LibKey Nomad works fine,

To get to the classic version of Web of Science click on the Products menu to the right of the screen; there you will see the link for Web of Science (Classic):

New Web of Science and LibKey Nomad

If you’ve started using the new version of Web of Science, please note that it is not yet compatible with LibKey Nomad.

In the old version of Web of Science, you will see the LibKey Nomad enhancements including journal cover images and quick links to PDFs from the search results:

In the new Web of Science you will only see links to our WebBridge LR link resolver that will help you get the full text of the article:

We will update when the new Web of Science supports LibKey Nomad, but if you need help with this or any other Library resources please contact us.

May Faculty Publications

A new selection of articles have been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Ische Library. These eight articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans. Each month the Library is proud to present copies of eight of these publications in a rotating display of 16. With the currently changes, we’ve decided to post the publications digitally. Check out the display below:

Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMedSCOPUS, and CINAHL, to name a few. In addition to articles they include books, book chapters, papers, editorials, letters to the editor, and meeting abstracts, all authored by at least one member of the LSUHSC-NO community. The database is maintained by Reference Librarian Kathy Kerdolff and is available to the general public here or via the Library’s webpage. A PDF of a bibliography of this month’s addition is available here. If you have an article you would like us to highlight or if you have any questions regarding the display or the database, you can contact Kathy Kerdolff.

My NCBI Login Transition

Change Login before June 1st, 2021

What’s happening?

NCBI is transitioning to federated account credentials. NCBI-managed credentials are the username and password you set at NCBI — these will be going away. Federated account credentials are those set through eRA Commons, Google, or a university or institutional point of access.

TIPS to Transition

How to add a 3rd-party login option

  1. Log into your NCBI account as usual.
    1. Click on your username in the upper right corner to access the NCBI Account Settings page.
    1. In the “Linked accounts” (old heading) section, select “Change”.
    1. In the search box, search for your desired 3rd-party option.
    1. Select the link for your desired option.
    1. Authenticate with the 3rd party.

Read by QxMD changes

The Library will not renew our institutional subscription to Read by QxMD, so you may see reduced functionality starting in June. You will still be able to set subject alerts and share articles, but getting to full text will be slightly more difficult.

If an article is available for free, you will be able to access it with no trouble. However, if a subscription is required to view the full text, you may be asked to log in. Please remember that the Library is a member of the OpenAthens federation, so you will be able to use your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password to log in to publishers who support that option.

We are still maintaining full access to BrowZine, and it can also be accessed via desktop or mobile applications.

If you have any questions about this or any other Library services, please contact us.
