Hi Chris.

Welcome, great you’re on board ...

Not to ‘welcome’ you with a potential unpleasant discussion, and i do not know what you heard about the discussion after people saw what buttons Elsevier has put online at ScienceDirect, but: do you see any possibiity to either roll back the changes in access/sign in-buttons to a previous version (and maybe 1st have a discussion with people in the identity and access management field, or fix the current situation? Or is this a case of Elsevier balancing all aspects, of which ‘strategies to make money’ of course is one, which leads to, accorinding to many in our field, the strange current UI/UX? Redefining ‘access’ and ‘sign in’, and argumenting that it’s just a matter of users getting used to that, sounds a bit ... ‘unreal’...

With kindest regards, met vriendelijke groet,
