  1. What is an institution?

    Institutional Online Subscriptions generally provide access to the journal from an institution in one geographic location and do not permit remote campuses, remote sites, consortia, or other forms of subscription sharing. For the most part, an Institutional Online Subscription authorizes use at a localized site. A "site" is an organizational unit and may be academic or nonacademic. For organizations located in more than one city, each city office is considered a different site. For organizations within the same city that are administered independently, each office is considered a different site. For example, each campus in the State University of New York system is considered a different site, and each branch or office of Upjohn Laboratories is considered a different site.

  2. My institution has a subscription to an RUP journal, but I'm not able to see the full text of articles. I'm prompted for a username and password. Why is this happening?

    When this happens, the IP address for your machine is not being recognized by our computer. This failure is caused by one of three things:

    • Your institutional subscription has not yet been activated
    • The person who activated the online subscription did not enter in all needed IP addresses for your institution
    • The person who activated the online subscription does not realize that some subnets of your institution are routed through a proxy server

    Your site administrator can check the IP range configuration. If the ranges are correct and you are still having difficulties in accessing the material, please e-mail rupress@subsriptions.com or call +1 800-633-4931 if calling within the US or Canada. From other countries, please call +1 205-995-1567. Please include your customer number in your message if you have access to it.

  3. My library has an online + print subscription, but I can't get access to it online. Why?

    Your institution may not yet have activated its institutional subscription to the journal. Notify your library that you would like access to the journal, and encourage your librarian to activate the online subscription.

  4. Who from my institution can access an online journal?

    An online subscription permits unlimited simultaneous internet access to the journal by authorized users generally at one location (the employees, faculty, staff, and students officially associated with the subscriber and authorized patrons of the subscriber's library facilities that are administered from the subscriber's site or campus) through the use of the institution's IP address. Authenticated and authorized users may access the journal from other locations (e.g., proxy, VPN).

    When someone attempts to use an online journal, our server checks to see if the requesting computer is within the list of IP addresses provided by a subscribing institution. If it is, the reader will be able to use all services enabled for institutional readers. For institutional subscribers, there are no usernames or passwords to remember, and there is currently no limit on the number of readers from your institution who may access the journal simultaneously. If readers want to access the journal from computers that are not part of your institutional network, they can do so only if the institution uses a proxy server, or through an individual subscription.
