Preparing for the journal migration

How can I log in?

The Ingenta Connect credentials have been transferred, so if you have accessed Intellect's content via Ingenta Connect before, please use the same username and password to log in to Intellect Discover. Should you not be able to log in, please email [email protected].

 

Does the content redirect to Intellect Discover?

Yes, there are article-level redirects from Ingenta Connect to Intellect Discover in perpetuity, as the new platform is also provided by Ingenta - a clear advantage for our journal content! 

However, those redirects won't be necessary in the long run, as we have resubmitted all DOIs so that a redirect will not be necessary and the DOIs resolve directly to Intellect Discover. You don’t need to do anything.

 

Do I need to update my IP manually on the new platform? 

Your IP addresses have been transferred from Ingenta Connect. 

Please see the relevant section below on how to change or add IP addresses.

 

Is there be any impact on usage reports? 

The statistics for October are now available on Intellect Discover, please access through your administrator dashboard. The November reports will be available in December on Intellect Discover.

 

Are there any changes to DOIs? Is the DOI registry updated to reflect new URLs? 

The DOI registry has been updated to reflect the new URLs on Intellect Discover, so the DOIs for journal articles have not changed.

 

Does my institution have access to both platforms simultaneously?

Redirects from Ingenta Connect to Intellect Discover are in place, however, the content has now been removed from Ingenta Connect and access is solely through Intellect Discover.

 

What do I do if my library has lost access during the transition?

Please email [email protected]. Our Digital Products Manager Mareike will resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
