Simple, flexible access control
and identity management

As a publisher, you need to control access to your content in line with your commercial agreements. At the same time, many of the leading publishers are now prioritizing and investing in improving the experience for end users. So, how do you keep control, but make access for users quick, easy and flexible?

HighWire Identity, delivered via SAMS Sigma, provides your users with a single sign-on to access scholarly content, across multiple websites. It enables you to identify each user and provides you with a simple, flexible way to license content and control access. Bottom line: you can know who has been accessing your websites no matter where they are hosted.

More than access control,
it’s the first user experience.

HighWire Identity provides your users with a single sign-on to access scholarly content, across multiple websites no more re-signing in when you switch between resources. It enables you to identify each user, plug-in other identity data sources to get a single customer view, and provides you with a simple, flexible way to license content and control.

There are huge changes occurring in scholarly publishing, and consumer expectations for accessing academic content are shifting rapidly. That is why we built this system dedicated to delivering a better experience for the end-user, as well as providing greater flexibility for publishers to control access, identify users and the institutions they work with.
