    Ovid links resolve to a login page, how to enable journal and article linking?


    After activating Ovid, how to enable linking to journal or article level? Currently all links lead to the login page.


    It is needed to consult the Online Help, but for most customers, it will help to add the word yes (i.e., "yes", all lower case, no quotation marks) in the IPAUTH field of the full-text service Linking parameters menu:

    1. Search under "Electronic Collection" for the Ovid collection (e.g.: Ovid Lippincott Williams and Wilkins Total Access Collection 2015)
    2. Click: Edit Service
    3. Go to Linking Information (tab)
    4. In the "Linking Parameters" at the bottom, type yes next to IPAUTH.
