Downgraded OpenURL support in a vendor

Doesn’t entirely fill one with confidence to see a vendor downgrading rather than upgrading their outgoing OpenURL support.

Next week the Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) will introduce a new website for our high-quality, high-impact journals. This new website will offer a fresh new look and provide improved tools and resources for our users.

With the launch of this new website we will now support the following version of outbound OpenURL linking: OpenURL0.1(SFX0.1).

If you currently use OpenURL 1.0 with either of the SAP1 or SAP2 protocols, please convert to OpenURL0.1(SFX0.1) to ensure continued access. Neither the SAP1 nor SAP2 protocols will be supported in the new web environment.
