Latest update: 18 March 2020

In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the latest UK government advice, we have advised all OpenAthens colleagues to follow our business continuity plan and work remotely until the guidance changes. Any changes to our normal working practices or our service will always be posted here.

Our service is very much up and running and fully functional. Our teams have all the necessary access and equipment to continue providing you with everything you need to make the most of OpenAthens.

The health and well-being of our colleagues, partners and suppliers is our number one priority. By protecting our people we will be able to continue to maintain the high levels of service and support that you have come to expect.

Our thoughts are with all those who are significantly and adversely affected by this pandemic.

If we can help maintain access to vital resources, or if you have any questions, please get in touch.
