IP registration

Administrators can update, add, and delete the IP addresses associated with their organisation. If you are working with IPv6 you need to update these on the platform to avoid access issues.

To do this log in to your account from an authorised IP address. Open the Institutional Administration interface in the user profile. Select the IP Ranges section and configure the IP information as required.

You can also update the list of IP addresses for your organisation by completing this form.

Usage statistics

In order to generate usage statistics for your institution you must have an administrative account with us. If you are unsure of your account details, please email access@royalsociety.org

To run usage reports go to 'My Profile' > 'Institutional Account' > 'Usage Report' > 'Atypon Insights' and select the parameters of the report. You can access reports for 2017 and 2018 via the “historical COUNTER statistics” option in the “Usage report” section.

The typical pattern for a WAYFless url is as follows:

https://royalsocietypublishing.org/action/ssostart?idp=<institution-entity-id>&redirectUri=<target-url> 

When constructing your WAYFLess URL you will need your IdP and the page URL to which you are linking. 

OpenURL configuration

If you have an OpenURL link resolver, such as SFX, you can create links back to your library holdings in the reference sections of Royal Society articles. These links help your patrons find the most appropriate copy of the article they are looking for.

For link-resolver suppliers all details pertaining to our titles are available for download as TXT files that conform to the KBART Phase II Recommended Practice. Please contact us with any feedback on these files.
