The IP Registry (The Global IP Address Database for #Libraries and #Publishers)


Experience shows that on average 58% of the IP ranges held by publishers to authenticate libraries who license their content are inaccurate. Apart from unlicensed access, a consequence of incorrect IPs can be inaccurate usage statistics for both publishers and libraries.

Until now, the systems for keeping the IP ranges accurate and up to date were cumbersome, time-consuming and inefficient for both publishers and libraries.

The IP Registry is a single repository of the validated IP addresses for over 60,000 content licensing organisations worldwide, accessible by both publishers and libraries and maintained for the benefit of the whole scholarly communication community by PSI based in Oxford, UK and Boston, USA.
