I do see some other flaws:
* If I understand this well, it will only work for publications that have a doi. Unfortunately that is not the case for every e-publication, and not every discovery layer has got the doi for each publication in its meta data
* It only works for publishers and integrators that support federated authentication and will join the common GFTR environment. Harder to implement for small publishers
* It only seems to work in discovery layers that themselves support Federated authentication, since they have tp provide the user affiliation to the GFTR API’s. I do not think that Google Scholar will give up authenticating by google over authenticating by distributed Identity providers.
* Will it be easy to join the GFTR environment ? Not only for aggregators and small publishers but also for libraries to for example offer links to content in their repositories for example

Subject: Re: [Fim4l] Fwd: GetFTR
As I understand it, GetFTR is not a user facing tool. A user won't have any control over whether there are GFTR links in the tool they are using any more than they control any other aspects of what an interface presents to them. From what I read, any discovery layer (what GFTR is calling a technology integration partner) will eventually be able to turn on GFTR links using the APIs. So, beyond Dimensions, Mendeley, etc. in the early pilot, GFTR links could eventually appear in Google Scholar (if Google wanted them to), in library subscribed databases (beyond Dimensions), in A&I services, in citation management tools, on ResearchGate, etc.
The issue of aggregator content and GFTR is not whether the aggregators might turn on GFTR links (which they may) but that aggregator hosted content is currently not able to be a target for a GFTR link. So, if the library doesn't have the content from the publisher directly, the GFTR link will convey to the user that the library does not have it ... even if it does on an aggregator. Some of us suspect that while libraries will see this as a flaw in GFTR, the publishers will see this as a feature and so this "limitation" (to use Roger's term in the SK post) is likely to persist.

Using just the entitlement information from the publishers' websites
isn't sufficient, since many full texts are licensed on other platforms,
especially aggregators like EBSCO or ProQuest. So unless aggregators
take part (which seems very unlikely for EBSCO and ProQuest since they
have their own discovery platforms) or link resolvers are integrated,
users won't have access to large parts of the licensed content via
GetFTR. Google Scholar covers lots of publishers, also provides access
to free versions and integrates link resolvers, so I'm wondering why
users should switch from Google Scholar (or a discovery tool provided by
the library) to GetFTR?
