My institution has a subscription to BJGP, and access to BJGP, 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?
- Send us Feedback so we can begin to diagnose the problem.
- Talk to your librarian, and let them know you are having trouble.
My library subscribes to the paper BJGP, and I can't get access to it online. Why?
Your institution has not yet activated its institutional subscription to BJGP. All subscribers to the paper journal also receive access to the online journal. Notify your library that you would like access to BJGP, and encourage your librarian to activate the online subscription.
Who from my institution can access BJGP?
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 BJGP.
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.
How will this work?
When someone attempts to use BJGP, 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 BJGP simultaneously.
If readers want to access BJGP 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.
What subscription packages are available?

How can I tell if my institution has subscribed to BJGP?
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.
