Today, sales of online journal content or content with an online component comprise more than 50 percent of the institutional serial market. This percentage is expected to continue rising, bringing new challenges and opportunities for your content to be discovered and used. It is clear that usage of e-journal content is, and will be a key factor when content purchasing decisions are made.
Many factors can influence the usage of your online content. Accessibility with an institution, presence of full-text links in content listings, databases and cited references, complexity of the registration or activation process and IP-address range consistency can all be obstacles that prevent end users from finding or accessing your content. This ultimately affects authors, editors, societies and what libraries decide to purchase.
