Why don't I see SmartLinks in EBSCOhost for some of my EBSCO Electronic Journals Services (EJS) titles?

On occasion, you may notice that EBSCO SmartLinks+ are not available from EBSCOhost databases or EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) to journals you subscribe to via EBSCO's Electronic Journals Service (EJS). While many of the journals available via EJS are available for linking, in some cases we are unable to provide direct to article viewing due to an absence of a metadata agreement between the publisher and EBSCO.  Journal metadata is a required element to enable EBSCO SmartLinks+.

When no agreement exists, EJS provides links to the publisher or journal web sites, not to specific articles. We are continuing our efforts to provide better coverage for all EJS purchases through agreements with publishers.
