Institutional Online Subscription includes: Access to full text of all articles from 1916 to present, current and future tables of contents, abstracts and full text searching. Access is provided to computers within a particular set of internet IP addresses. If your institution has authentication from off-campus computers, you will be able to access the online version of The JI through your institution's sign-in procedures.

Types of Institutional Online Subscriptions

  1. Single Site. The single site license includes IP addresses for one geographical location in one city that is administered by one organization.
  2. Multi-Site. Any institution that does not qualify for a single site license must purchase a multi-site license. Institutions that are classified as multi-site may include (a) an institution whose registered IP addresses encompass more than one geographic site (e.g., a university campus that administers a branch campus in a different city or suburb); (b) an institution located on a host site that has a separate administration (e.g., a government laboratory located on a university campus). Access is available at all of an organization's sites.

How Institutional Online Access Works

Institutional access is easy and convenient! There are no usernames or passwords to remember and there is currently no limit on the number of readers from an institution who may access the online version of The JI simultaneously. If a computer requesting access to The JI is within the list of internet IP addresses provided by a subscribing institution, all those services enabled for institutional readers are immediately available.

How to Identify that Access is Received through an Institutional Subscription

If an institution has a subscription, there is immediate access to all content on the online version of The JI. A banner located at the top of the page will confirm that access is available from the subscribing institution.
