Message from Ovid OpenAthens

On August 24, 2021 between 2pm and 4pm HKT, OpenAthens will be performing upgrades on the essential backbone of their services to keep everything up to date and secure. For full details, please click here.

This update will only affect customers that log into Ovid via OpenAthens or Shibboleth. Other login methods, such as IP authentication or username/password, are not affected.

Every effort will be made to ensure any disruption will be kept to a minimum, but there is a chance you will need to log into Ovid more than once during this time.

Feel free to contact Customer Support with any questions by sending an email to

Wolters Kluwer - Ovid
