Elsevier Science Direct – some sign in issues for off campus users

Elsevier are currently investigating an issue with sign in for off campus access.

After arriving at an article page if you choose the purchase pdf option and then sign in via your institution, after selecting Nottingham Trent University login and completing NTU single sign in, you are presented with a 404 error page.

Until this is resolved off campus users should select the sign in option to the top right of the screen, as this ‘sign in via your institution’ route works ok.
