ScienceDirect Available with Single Sign-On

Unattributed, Ferl, Jul 19, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

OK, here's the post: "Publisher Elsevier has announced that its ScienceDirect service is now available through the UK Access Management Federation, so users will be able to log on with their institution's ID." Now the point that I want to make here is that this is proprietary sign-on, not single sign-on. And the use of the term 'single sign-on' to represent such proprietary solutions is wrong and misleading.
