Ovid Technologies Launches eMeta Software

Dec 05, 2003

eMeta Corporation has announced that Ovid Technologies, a medical information solutions provider, has implemented eMeta's eRights Suite into the Ovid platform to support its PayPerView service. Using eRights, Ovid is now able to provide its customers and non-Ovid customers that link to Ovid with pay-per-view access to its Journals@Ovid database. This option allows researchers, clinicians, and students to purchase full-text articles when their institution has not purchased the rights to access those journals. Providing the infrastructure and applications necessary to secure and sell online research, eMeta's eRights Suite was integrated with the Ovid Web Gateway. Ovid Web Gateway is Ovid's flagship solution and provides users with a Web-interface to access databases, full-text journals, and electronic books. eRights enforces Ovid's PayPerView policies, provides a shopping cart, customer care, and customer self-care, allowing users to see their billing transactions and order history and maintain up-to-date personal information. The system manages transactions and refunds and provides report data to Ovid.
