Does Sage support integrated services like Open URL?

Modified on Fri, 28 Jun at 8:51 AM



An OpenURL serves as a specialized web address, facilitating seamless access to scholarly resources across different platforms. Unlike a generic website link, it acts as a bridge, directing users precisely to specific articles, books, patents, or other resources within a website. This targeted linking mechanism is of immense value in academic and research contexts.

Does Sage support integrated services like Open URL?

Yes, Sage supports Open URLs. 

For instance, when researchers encounter an abstract for a scientific paper and seek access to the full article, clicking on the associated OpenURL seamlessly transports them to the complete content—even if it resides on a different platform or database. By simplifying navigation across diverse scholarly resources, OpenURLs enhance accessibility for scholars, students, and librarians seeking relevant content.
