Frequently Asked Questions about Institutional Subscriptions
1. My institution has a subscription to the AJEV Online, 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.
What should I do?
1. Send us feedback so we can begin to diagnose the problem.
2. Talk to your librarian, and let them know you are having trouble.
2. My library subscribes to the paper AJEV, and I can't get access to it online. Why?
Your institution may not subscribe to the online version of AJEV, which is a separate subscription. Please check with your librarian. If your institution does subscribe to the online version, then perhaps it has not yet activated its institutional subscription to AJEV Online. Notify your library that you would like access to the AJEV Online, and encourage your librarian to activate the online subscription.
3. Who from my institution can access AJEV Online?
The subscription fee allows for unrestricted Internet access at one location. Any user connecting from an authorized computer on your institutional network will be allowed access to AJEV Online.
4. What is an Institution?
For the most part, an Institutional 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.
5. How will this work?
When someone attempts to use AJEV Online, our server checks to see if the requesting computer is within the list of internet IP address provided by a subscribing institution. If it is, the reader will be able to use all those 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 AJEV Online simultaneously.
If readers want to access AJEV Online from computers that are not part of your institutional network (e.g., through dial-in or telnet through a commercial Internet service provider) they can do so only through an individual subscription.
6. What subscription packages are available?
Individual Subscribers have access to:
Tables of contents, abstracts, full text searching, full text display, document delivery, PDFs, links to Medline and GenBank, future tables of contents, and the advantage of having password access to AJEV Online from any computer connected to the Internet. [Ordering Procedure][Cost][ASEV Membership]
Individual (Non-Member) Subscribers have access to the print version only.
Institutional Subscribers have access to:
Tables of contents, abstracts, full text searching, full text display, PDFs, links to Medline and GenBank, future tables of contents, and document delivery. Access is limited to computers within a particular set of internet IP addresses. [Ordering Procedure][Cost][ ASEV Membership]
7. How can I tell if my institution has subscribed to AJEV Online
If your institution has a subscription, you'll automatically have access to the tables of contents, abstracts, full-text searching, full text display, PDFs, Medline and GenBank links, and future tables of contents. You'll also see a button at the top of the page confirming you're signed in as part of an institution.
If your institution has not subscribed, or if you wish to take advantage of the additional services available to individual subscribers, you can choose to access AJEV Online with an individual subscription.
8. Can my institution subscribe only to the electronic version?
9. Will we still be able to get the paper version? And for how long?
Yes, institutions and individuals may subscribe to the paper version for the foreseeable future.
10. If our AJEV Online subscription expires and at some later date we reinstate our subscription, will we have access to all years of the electronic version?
Yes, when you buy a subscription to AJEV Online, you have access to all years of the database.
11. How can I access the AJEV Online if I am not an ASEV member and I don't have access through an institutional subscription?
Any individual may apply for ASEV membership. Without a subscription you have access to the Table of Contents, abstracts, and full text searching (but not full text viewing) at no cost and without having to register. You may purchase single articles for $10.00.
