Question

Que veulent dire "utilisateur institutionnel", "utilisateur particulier" et "membre" ?

Réponse

Utilisateurs institutionnels

Ce sont les utilisateurs dont les accès dépendent de l'abonnement de leur bibliothèque. L'administrateur de compte (généralement un bibliothécaire ou un documentaliste) s'occupe de toutes les questions relatives à l'accès et les utilisateurs n'ont pas à s'enregistrer eux-mêmes. Ils ont accès aux sommaires, résumés, textes intégraux des revues auxquelles leur institution est abonnée, et ils peuvent configurer leurs propres alertes et requêtes.

Utilisateurs particuliers

Ce sont des personnes qui se sont abonnées à une ou plusieurs revues. Elles doivent s'enregistrer pour avoir un accès en ligne au texte intégral des articles. Les particuliers qui se sont abonnés en tant que tel, mais qui sont par ailleurs aussi membre d'une institution abonnée ont des droits d'accès pour les deux types d'abonnement.

Membres d'association et de société

Les membres ont accès au contenu de certaines revues via leur association ou leur société d'appartenance. Ils doivent s'enregistrer sur le site avec l'ID de leur société ou association et leur propre numéro de membre. Les membres qui sont abonnés en tant que tel, mais qui sont par ailleurs aussi membre d'une institution abonnée ont des droits d'accès pour les deux types d'abonnement (mais également à un accès particulier s'ils sont abonnés comme tel).

  • 121.18.19.* = toutes les adresses IP commençant par 121.18.19
  • 121.18.19.0-255 = une plage d'adresses IP de 121.18.19.0 à 121.18.19.255 inclus (identique à l'exemple précédent)
  • 121.18.* = toutes les adresses IP commençant par 121.18
  • 121.18.0-255. = toutes les adresses IP dans la plage 121.18.0-255 (c'est-à-dire toutes les adresses commençant par 121.18)
  • 121.18.0-255.0-255 = toutes les adresses IP commençant par 121.18

Question

J'ai commandé un abonement particulier et un abonnement institutionnel et deux paniers d'achats sont apparus. Pourquoi ?

Mon abonnement est payé, mais je n'ai pas accès au texte intégral des articles. Pourquoi ?

Réponse

Les abonnements institutionnels doivent être activés par l'administrateur de compte avec le numéro d'abonné approprié. Assurez-vous que ce soit bien le cas. Une autre raison pour laquelle vous n'avez pas accès pourrait être que votre adresse IP n'ait pas été enregistrée. Contactez votre administrateur de compte à ce propos.

Question

Que faire en cas de problème avec les fichiers PDF ?

Réponse

Voici des astuces pour imprimer vos fichiers PDF :

Les PDF sont des fichiers lourds qui peuvent prendre du temps à télécharger. La vitesse de téléchargement dépend de plusieurs facteurs : la bande passante de votre connexion réseau, les performances et préférences de votre ordinateur et le trafic sur Internet.

Question

Comment les caractères spéciaux s'affichent-ils en HTML ?

Réponse

Nous utilisons la norme HTML Unicode Character Set pour les caractères non latins. Ceci permet d'afficher une gamme étendue de caractères dans des navigateurs Internet comme Explorer et Firefox. En effet, nos revues utilisent des caractères spécifiques à leur discipline et/ou aux sujets traités, mais les navigateurs Internet et les polices standards limitent ceux qui sont correctement affichés.

Les caractères Unicode reconnus dépendent de la version de navigateur et des polices chargés sur un ordinateur. Ces configurations varient pour chaque poste utilisateur et nous n'avons aucun contrôle dessus. Par conséquent, le même article peut s'afficher correctement sur un poste équipé des polices adéquates et d'un navigateur récent, mais de manière insatisfaisante sur un poste ne dispossant pas des polices nécessaires et/ou d'un navigateur récent. Afin d'optimiser les performances d'affichage et d'atténuer les différences d'un poste à l'autre, nous utilisons un jeu de caractères Unicode dont l'affichage est satisfaisant dans les navigateurs reconnus par NecPlus et utilisant les polices par défaut Arial (sur PC) ou Ventura (Mac). Les caractères non affichables en Unicode sont remplacés par des images. En cas de défaut de substitution, les caractères non reconnus sont remplacés par des rectangles vides, des caractères manquants ou tout caractère de substitution par défaut du navigateur concerné. L'avantage est de permettre à l'utilisateur de visualiser un maximum de caractères non pris en compte. Cependant, cela implique que les utilisateurs dont le poste est équipé des polices spécialisées qui leur permettrait de les visualiser, voient les images qui ont été substituées à la place et non l'Unicode original. Cela peut donner lieu à des altérations du style de caractère à l'intérieur d'un mot affiché en gras ou en italique. Les navigateurs évoluant dans le sens d'un affichage de plus en plus important de caractères Unicode, le nombre d'images de substitution dans le HTML va décroissant, et le HTML s'affiche donc de mieux en mieux.

Des informations complémentaires sur les OS et les navigateurs sont disponibles dans nos pages d'aide et dans les notices utilisateur des navigateurs.

Question

Le site NecPlus applique-t-il les dernières recommandations Web Content Accessibility (WCAG1) ?

Réponse

Question

Quels contenus et services gratuits sur NecPlus ?

Réponse

Tous les utilisateurs accèdent gratuitement aux sommaires et aux résumés des articles. Des offres spéciales permettent des accès temporaires de démonstration à certaines parties de revues.

Les utilisateurs qui s'enregistrent sur le site de NecPlus accèdent gratuitement à des numéros de la plupart des revues. Ils peuvent configurer leurs propres espaces de travail personnel et y sauvegarder des requêtes, des liens, et créer des alertes sur les sommaires et les articles à paraître.

Question

Comment créer un permalien (deep link) pour aller directement à la page d'accueil d'une revue sur le site NecPlus ?

Réponse

Il suffit de créer une URL avec la formule suivante :

http://www.necplus.eu/jid_

suivi de l'abréviation en trois lettres de la revue. Par exemple, l'abréviation de "Communication & langages" étant CML,le lien vers la page d'accueil de cette revue est

http://www.necplus.eu/jid_CML

Pour trouver l'abréviation correspondant à la revue qui vous intéresse, allez dans le menu de gauche et utilisez la commande "consulter les revues" "par titre" ou "par sujet" et passez votre souris sur le titre de la revue. L'abréviation apparaît dans la barre de statut de votre navigateur en pied de page, à la fin de l'URL qui se termine par jid=CML, CML étant l'abréviation de la revue sur le site NecPlus.

pages d'Aide

There are three main ways to search the content of journals on Cambridge Journals Online: the Quick Search, the Cite Search and the Advanced Search.

Quick Search

Quick Search boxes appear across the top of every page throughout the site. The first box allows you to search:

- across all Cambridge's online books and journals

- just Cambridge Journals

- the Cambridge Journals Online site for something other than journals content

If you are running a search from a particular journal's homepage, you can also choose to search just within that particular journal; if you are running a search from the table of contents of a specific journal issue you can choose to search just that issue.

To run a Quick Search, first choose which type of content you want to search, then enter your search term(s) into the second box and click 'Search'. This will run a search runs across the full text of all the contents you have specified and their associated metadata fields (title, author names, keywords, etc).

Cite Search

'Cite Search' provides you with a quick way of searching for content if you have an article citation to hand, or if you know some or all of the bibliographic details of the content you are looking for. In other words, it is a more precise search tool than 'Quick Search' because you can use more search criteria. At the same time, because you already know what you are looking for you don't need the powerful search capabilities provided by 'Advanced Search'.

To use 'Cite Search', click the 'Cite Search' button at the top right-hand side of the page. New search boxes will be displayed. Start typing the name of the journal you are interested in into the first box. As you type, a list of journals that match your criteria will appear from which you can make your selection. You can then use any or all of the other fields (Author, Year, Volume, Issue, Page) to narrow down your search further. Note, however, that you can use any of the fields on their own (once you have selected a journal) except for the 'Page' field. If you try to do this you will see an error message asking you to enter more data.

Advanced Search

If you wish to narrow your search further, use the Advanced Search tool by clicking on the 'Advanced Search' link immediately below the 'Quick Search' and 'Cite Search' tabs. (See Help on Advanced Search for more information.)

CrossRef Search

CrossRef search allows you to search all participating publishers' content. For more information about CrossRef, visit the CrossRef website.

Ranking results

To find out how we rank your search results, see Help on Search Results.

This feature allows you to forward a table of contents to an interested colleague. To use this feature you need to have registered and be logged in.

Find the table of contents for the journal issue you are interested in by using the 'Browse Journal' link in the 'Journal Menu' on the left-hand side of the journal's homepage. When you have found the table of contents you are looking for you will see a 'Forward TOC' link just below the Volume and Issue details. Clicking on this link will open a new page. Enter your name and email address, your colleague's name, email address and department into the relevant boxes and add any message you wish to include in the 'Message' box. When you are ready to send the email, click 'Submit'.

Some societies offer free online access to their journals as part of their membership package. The ?Society Administrator? manages this online access using an administrator?s menu. To become the administrator for your society you will need to contact Customer Services.

The first thing you will need to do is provide a file containing the society's membership numbers. Again, you should do this by contacting Customer Services.

When you register as the Society Administrator, you will be given a Society ID by Cambridge Customer Services. You should provide your members with this number and with their individual Society Subscription ID (ie their membership number). Members who are registered users of Cambridge Journals Online will then be able to use the 'Activate Society Subscriptions' page to gain access to the full text of society journals.

Society members listing

The list that appears on the 'Members' page is of those members who have activated their society subscription. The default order of this list is by 'Membership Number' (the membership numbers previously uploaded to the society account.) Note: the 'Member ID' number displayed in the list is a Cambridge allocated number and is used for internal identification purposes.

Society members listing options

You can change how the list is organised by selecting a different 'Sort by' option: Member ID, Last Name, First Name.

You can also decide how many results appear per page, by using the 'Results per page' menu. (It defaults to 10 results per page.)

You can jump to a specific page in the entire list of results by using the 'Go to page' menu and you can also navigate to the first, previous, next and last pages of the entire list of results by clicking the corresponding page navigation links.

All of these search result options can be located at the top and bottom of all search result pages.

Access from the society's website

Society members can also be given direct access to their journal from the society's website. We can set up a link that is accessible from the member's area of the society's website and takes them directly to the full text of the society journal on Cambridge Journals Online. If you would like this arrangement for your society, please get in touch with your main editorial contact at Cambridge University Press

To log out of Cambridge Journals Online, click the 'Log out' button that appears at the top right of every page.

If you are using a shared computer (in a library, for example) you should also close your internet browser to stop other users getting access to your personal data.

To change any of your registration details you need to be logged in. Go to the 'My CJO Links' drop-down menu at the top left-hand side of the page and click on 'Change Registration Details' to take you to the registration page. Find the appropriate input fields and make the necessary changes. Once you are sure that all the required fields have been completed, click 'Update' at the bottom of the page.

How do I get my browser to render Unicode characters?

Most journals found on Cambridge Journals Online use the Unicode standard to represent any special characters found in the tables of contents or abstracts (eg mathematical symbols, Greek script).

If you find that your browser is not correctly rendering such characters, please ensure it is not set to override the font chosen by the page displayed, or alternatively choose a font which has good Unicode support such as Arial Unicode MS or Times New Roman. You should also ensure your browser uses an encoding which offers greater support, such as Unicode (UTF-8).

In Internet Explorer the font settings are accessed by selecting Tools, Internet options, from the top menu and then clicking on the Fonts button. To change the encoding, simply right click on any webpage and select the Encoding submenu.

In Firefox click Tools, Options from the top menu, and then click the Advanced button from the Fonts and Colours section.

This tool is designed to retrieve journal information from our database and provide it in a convenient format for use in other applications. It is primarily for Account Administrators who need to produce listings, check claims or create deep links to journal homepages from their OPACs.

To access the 'Collection Manager' you need to be registered as an Account Administrator and have logged in. You will then be able to find it in your 'Account Administrator Links' menu.

1. Select which journals you want to include in your listing

If you are interested in particular journals or subject areas scroll down the 'Journals' or 'Subjects' list and select them.

Note: to select more than one journal or subject from these menus, PC users should hold down the Control (CTRL) key while clicking on the items they are interested in. On Macintoshes, use the Apple key.

2. Select the types of content you want listed using the 'Contents' list

This menu gives you a number of other ways of selecting journals content:

- all content available to you

- all content not available to you (ie those journals which you do not subscribe to or which Cambridge no longer publishes)

- your institutional subscriptions

- your consortia subscriptions

- your archive subscriptions

- your free trials

- journals no longer published by Cambridge

- journals which changed title

- journals free to all

- issues free to all

3. Use the 'Fields to Display' menu to choose the field types you are interested in.

These include the journal's full and short title, the URL of the journal's homepage and the date the most recent article was published.

4. Select a format

Use the 'Output file' menu to choose how you wish to view or export the data.

You can choose to display the listings on screen so that you can check them before exporting them.

If you would like your data to be formatted into an Excel spreadsheet file, select "Excel Spreadsheet" from the list of options. If you want to incorporate the data into local databases or other types of applications, select either the Tab or Comma Delimited file formats. If you choose any of these options, the data will automatically be previewed on screen. When you are satisfied with the listing, click 'Download file'.

Example of Comma Delimited Format:

Ageing & Society,Cambridge University Press,0144-686X

Example of Tab Delimited Format:

Ageing & Society        Cambridge University Press         0144-686X

RSS and Atom feeds have become standards for syndicating content. They are computer-readable files that summarise new content as it appears on a website. (RSS and Atom are two different formats that do basically the same thing. RSS is the more established, but Atom is becoming increasingly widespread.)

How to get RSS or Atom feeds from Cambridge Journals Online

To receive news feeds you need to install a newsreader on your computer if you have not already done so. You will find a list of readers at Syndication resources. Some are free and some you have to pay for, some support RSS only but many support both RSS and Atom. (Please note: Cambridge University Press cannot recommend a particular newsreader, nor can we provide technical support for its installation and use.)

You will then need to find the RSS or Atom icon for the Cambridge journal(s) you want to receive feeds from. You can do this by using the drop-down 'Browse Journals' menu that appears in the middle of the Cambridge Journals Online homepage and clicking on 'RSS/Atom Feeds'. Alternatively, you can click on the RSS/Atom icons that appear at the top of individual journal pages.

The 'Browse RSS/Atom' page lists Cambridge Journals alphabetically by title. Find the journal you are interested in, then click either the RSS or Atom icon next to it. This will open a new page, at the bottom of which you will see either one or two URLs. The first (or only) URL will give you a feed for the latest issue of a particular journal. The feed contains a brief description of the journal and a list of the articles that appear in that issue. If you click on the title of an article you will go to the article's abstract from where you can click through to the abstract on Cambridge Journals Online. From there, if you or your organisation subscribes to the journal, you will be able to access the full text of the article. The second URL, if it is displayed, will give you a feed for First View articles. These are articles that are available on Cambridge Journals Online before the next issue of the journal has been published. This option is not available for all Cambridge Journals as not all of them publish their articles incrementally in this way.

To receive either or both of these feeds you need to cut and paste the relevant URL(s) into your newsreader. You will need to repeat this process for every journal you want to get feeds from.

Pay-per-view articles are individual journal articles you can buy access to on a time-restricted basis. Cambridge Journals Online pay-per-view articles are accessible for 48 hours from the time of purchase. Once you have access to the article you may download it to your computer for your personal use.

To buy pay-per-view articles you need to be registered and have logged in. Find the article(s) you are interested in either via a table of contents or a search results listing then click the 'Add to basket' link below the article you are interested in. A search results listing will also allow you to add more than one article to your basket at a time by clicking the checkboxes to the left of each relevant article and then clicking the 'Add to basket' button at the top of the page.

Once you have clicked 'Add to basket' you will be taken through to the shopping basket from where you should follow the instructions for making payment.

My pay-per-view articles

This page allows you to view all your Pay-Per-View articles, both active and expired. It also allows you to buy your articles again once your access has expired. To get to it, you need to be registered and have logged in. You will then be able to find 'Pay-Per-View Articles' in the 'My CJO Links' drop-down menu.

The 'Date Purchased' column shows when the articles were purchased and the 'Hours Remaining' column show how long you have before your access expires.

When the articles are active the links to the content (PDF, HTML, PS, etc.) are present. When the articles have expired an 'Add to Basket' link appears instead.

Note: before buying a pay-per-view article you may want to double check that you don't already have access to it through an organisational subscription which may be available to you from a computer within your institution's network of by using your Athens log in.

To use this feature you need to be registered with Cambridge Journals Online and have logged in.

There are two ways to save articles:

Table of contents

Go to the relevant table of contents and find the article you are interested in. Then go to either the abstract or the PDF or HTML versions of the full-text article and click on the 'Article Menu' button on the left-hand side of the page. Then, under 'Options' click on 'Save This Article'.

Search results

After viewing the results of a basic or advanced search, click the checkbox(es) next to the article(s) you are interested in, then click the 'Save to my Saved Articles' button that appears at the top of the page.

My saved articles

The 'Saved Articles' page is accessible from your 'My CJO Links' menu and allows you to view all the articles you have previously saved. To delete an article from the list, click the corresponding checkbox and then click 'Delete Articles'. Click the 'Select All' corresponding checkbox to select all articles in the list.

You can create bookmarks within Cambridge Journals Online so that you can easily return to key journals or specific issues. You need to be registered and logged in to use this feature.

Bookmark a journal

Go to the journal's homepage and click on 'Bookmark & Share this Journal' in the menu that runs down the left-hand side of the page. Then click on 'Bookmark this Journal'.

Bookmark an issue

To find a particular issue, go to the journal homepage and click on either the 'Current Issue' or 'Back Issues' links under the 'Journal Menu' down the left-hand side of the page. Once you have found the issue you are looking for, click 'Bookmark this Issue' in the 'Bookmark & Share this Journal' menu.

My saved bookmarks

'Saved Bookmarks' is accessible from your 'My CJO Links' menu. It allows you to return to bookmarks you have already created. Each bookmark entry shows the date when the bookmark was saved. The bookmarks are listed in the order you saved them (ie by date). To list them alphabetically by title use the 'Sort by' menu.

'My Saved Searches' allows you to retrieve your previously saved searches so that you can re-run them. In addition, Cambridge Journals Online automatically saves your last ten search parameters for you.

To use this feature you need to have registered and be logged in. You will then see a 'My Cambridge Journals Online' menu at the top left hand side of every page throughout the site. Click on 'My CJO links' and then on 'Saved Searches'. This will take you to a new page which is divided into three sections.

1. Last ten search parameters

The last ten search parameters you have used appear at the top of the page. To re-run the search, click the 'Run' button. The search will include any new content that has been added since you last ran it.

2. Saved search results

This type of saved search allows you to save a set of search results. Once saved, these sets of results will remain the same even though new articles will be published on Cambridge Journals Online that fit the same search criteria. To access a saved search result, click on the 'Run' button next to the search results you are interested in.

3. Saved search parameters

These are the search parameters you have specifically saved, as opposed to the last ten parameters that are automatically saved for you.

If you have saved your search parameters you can re-run the search whenever you like by clicking the 'Run' button next to the search you are interested in. You can also ask Cambridge Journals Online to re-run the search for you automatically, as often as you like. To do this, go to the input field under the 'Run every x (days)' column and enter how often you would like the search run. Then click 'Update' at the bottom of the page.

To delete a search from any of the lists, click the corresponding checkbox under the 'Delete' column and then click the 'Delete' button. Click the 'Select all' corresponding checkbox to select all search entries in the list.

If you have forgotten your Cambridge Journals Online password, click the 'Log in' button that appears at the top right of every page. Then click on 'Log into Cambridge Journals Online' which will bring up a log-in box at the bottom of which is a 'Forgot your password?' link. Clicking on this will bring up a new page. Enter your email address in the 'Email' input field. You can then choose between two options. Either we can email you the prompt you gave us when you completed the registration page that will remind you of your password. Or we can send you an email containing your username and a temporary password. This temporary password can be used to log in to your account. You will then be able to access the 'Update registration details' page and change the temporary password to a new one of your choosing. (See Help on 'Change password').

Note: you can now log in using either your username and password or your email address and password. Usernames and passwords are case-sensitive.

Some societies make special arrangements for their members to have access to the full text of society journals. If you are a member of such a society, you will need to activate your subscription on Cambridge Journals Online in order to get access to the society's journal(s). To do this, you need to have registered with Cambridge Journals Online and you need two pieces of additional information: the Society ID (the society's Cambridge Journals Online unique identifier) and the Society Subscription ID (your membership number). These should be sent to you by the society.

To activate your society subscription make sure you are logged in, then click on the 'Activate Subscriptions' link in the 'My CJO links' drop-down menu at the top left-hand side of each page, immediately below your log-in details. Halfway down the 'Activate Subscriptions' page you will see 'Society Subscriptions'. Enter the Society ID and Society Subscription ID and click 'Activate'.

If your organisation buys its journal subscriptions directly through Cambridge Journals Online, your subscription will be activated for you and there is no need for you to take any further action.

However, if you have purchased a subscription in any other way (through a subscription agent, for example, or by mailing a cheque to Cambridge University Press) you will have to activate your subscription in order to get online access to the full text of articles.

To do this, you need to click on 'Activate Subscriptions' in the 'Account Administrator Links' drop-down menu which you will find at the top left-hand side of every page, underneath your log-in details. You will only have access to this page if you are the Account Administrator for your organisation. Enter your subscriber number (see below) into the 'Subscriber Number' box, then click 'Activate'. To activate multiple subscription numbers, enter all your subscriber numbers, separated by a comma, into the text area and then click 'Activate Multiple'. (Please note: in some cases, this process will be done for you by Customer Services.)

Activating Society Subscriptions

Some societies make special arrangements for their members to have access to the full text of society journals and this arrangement can extend to institutional members. If you organisation is an institutional member member of such a society, you will need to activate your subscription on Cambridge Journals Online in order to provide your users with access to the society's journal(s). To do this, you need two pieces of additional information: the Society ID (the society's Cambridge Journals Online unique identifier) and the Society Subscription ID (your membership number). These should be sent to you by the society.

To activate a society subscription, choose 'Activate Organisational Society Subscription' from the Account Administrator Links menu. Then enter the Society ID and the Society Subscription ID and click the 'Activate' button.

Subscriber numbers

When you purchase a journal subscription, Customer Services will send you your subscriber number. If you have supplied your email address when purchasing the subscription your subscriber number will be emailed to you. If we do not have your email address, your subscriber number will be mailed to you.

If you are subscribing to the print as well as the online version of the journal, you will also find your subscriber number on the carrier sheet in the journal package.

If your subscription originates from the UK, your subscriber number will be a 6 digit number. In North America, the subscriber number is either an 8 or 9 digit number.

Content alerts are email notifications that new journal content has been published on Cambridge Journals Online. If you are a registered user you can set up your contents alerts in a number of different ways using the 'Content Alerts' page. Depending on your preferences you can receive tables of contents or information about individual articles. (You can also opt to run saved searches periodically and receive the results by email - see Help on Advanced Search and My Saved Searches).

My content alerts

To set up contents alerts you need to have registered and be logged in. You can then go to the 'Content Alerts' link in the 'My CJO links' menu or click 'Content Alerts' on any individual journal page to set up new alerts or change your existing ones. If you have not yet registered and click on 'Content Alerts' on a journal page you will be asked to complete the registration process before your alerts can be set up for you.

Clicking on 'Content Alerts' brings up a new page giving you a number of menu options.

My Current Content Alerts

If you have already set up alerts, this brings up a list of the journals you have selected and shows whether you have chosen to receive 'Issue Alerts', 'First View Alerts' and/or 'Comments Alerts' (if they are available for those journals). You can delete or change any of your preferences by clicking on the tick boxes, then clicking on the 'Update' button at the bottom of the page.

Set Alert Preferences

This allows you to decide what kind of alerts you want to receive, how often you want to receive them and whether you prefer HTML or text-only emails.

You can choose to receive an email whenever a new issue of a journal you are interested in is published online. To do this, click the first radio button under 'Set alert preferences'.

Or you can choose to receive a regular email that tells you which new issues of the journal(s) you are interested in have been published online in a particular period. You can specify exactly how often you want to receive those emails. This is a useful option if you are tracking a number of different journals and prefer to consolidate the alerts into a single, regular update. To do this, click the second radio button and state how frequently you want to receive the email in the field provided.

If you want to stop receiving all content alerts, you can unsubscribe by clicking the third radio button: 'Unsubscribe from all email alerts for all journals'. If you want to unsubscribe from some content alerts but not others, go to the list of journals below (listed under 'Add Content Alerts') and uncheck the journals you are no longer interested in.

You can also opt to receive an email notifying you if any of the journals you are interested in publishes individual articles online in advance of the issue as a whole ('First View' articles). To do this, check the box next to: 'Send me an email alert every x days listing any individual articles that have been published online from any of the journals selected below', specifying how often you would like to receive the email.

You can also choose whether to receive emails in HTML or as text only, by clicking the appropriate radio button.

Personalisation

This feature allows you to choose how much information you want to receive and in what format.

If the 'Send me alerts without personalisation' box is checked you will receive emails containing the title and author(s) of the article(s) you are interested in, the name, volume and issue number of the journal(s) they appear in, their doi and the date they were published online. If you opted for HTML in the previous section these will link to the relevant pages on Cambridge Journals Online. This is the default setting.

'Alert format' gives you the option of having either the first 50 words of the articles' abstracts or their entire abstracts included in the email.

When you have decided how you would like to receive your emails, click 'Update' then go to 'Add Content Alerts' below to choose the journal(s) you want to track.

Add Content Alerts

Clicking on a subject under the 'Add Content Alerts' heading displays all the journals in that subject area.

If you are interested in hearing about individual articles published in advanced of whole issues (and you checked the box above to indicate that preference) you will also need to specify here which journals you wish that to apply to by clicking the 'First View Article Alert' checkbox. If you only want to be informed when complete issues have been published, click the 'Issue Alert' checkbox. If you click both, you will hear about individual articles as they are published, then receive the table of contents either when the issue is complete or as part of your next periodic alert, depending on your preference.

For both whole issue and First View alerts you can either click on the 'Select all Journals' checkboxes at the top of each column to hear about everything published in that subject area or choose individual journals from the list.

Some Cambridge journals are now encouraging readers to respond to individual articles. If the journal(s) you are interested in are accepting comments, you can also choose to be alerted when comments are posted. This feature is available if a checkbox appears in the 'Contents Alerts' column.

Once you have made your selection, click the 'Update' button at the bottom of the page.

This page allows you to identify your key journals so that you can easily locate and track the content that is most relevant to you.

To select your favourite journals you will need to have registered and be logged in. Click on 'Favourite Journals' in the 'My CJO Links' menu. Find the journal(s) you are interested in, click the corresponding checkbox(es) then click 'Update' at the bottom of the page. If you click the 'Enable Email Alert' checkbox at the bottom of the page, you will receive new content alerts for your favourite journals. Alternatively, click on the 'My Contents Alerts' link to refine your email alert preferences further.

This page allows you to identify your key area(s) of interest. We will keep you informed of news and developments across the subjects you have selected.

To use this feature you need to have registered and be logged in. Go to 'Favourite Subjects' in the 'My CJO Links' menu and choose your favourite subjects by clicking on the corresponding checkbox(es). Then click 'Update' at the bottom of the page.

Some journals provide a complete list of the supplementary materials that have been published alongside particular articles. If this feature is available for the journal you are interested in, you will see a 'Free Supplementary Materials' button on the journal's homepage. The list is organised by date of publication, with the most recently published article appearing at the top.

This feature is for use by Account Administrators. To access it, you need to be registered as your organisation's Account Administrator and have logged in.

'Subscription details' appears in the 'Account Administrator Links' menu and lists all your organisation's activated subscriptions to Cambridge Journals. Beneath the title of each journal listed, it shows the most recent volume your organisation has access to.

This feature allows Account Administrators to provide the URL of their local OpenURL resolver.

This will help your users follow up citations to articles you hold in your collection. When a user clicks on the 'Open URL query data' link in a Cambridge full-text HTML article, they will see both a search string that complies with the OpenURL standard and a link to your resolver. This makes it very easy for them simply to copy and paste the search string directly into your resolver.

To set this up, you need to be registered as your organisation's Account Administrator and have logged in. You will then see a 'My Cambridge Journals Online' panel at the top left-hand side of every page throughout the site. Click on the 'Account Adminstrator Links' menu and then on 'Open URL Resolver'. This will take you to a new page. If you have previously provided a URL it will be displayed as the 'Current URL resolver'. To change it, or to provide the information for the first time, enter the URL into the 'New URL resolver' box, then click 'Update'.

COinS and Zotero

COinS (Context Objects in Spans) is a way of embedding OpenURL references in HTML. COinS bibliographic metadata is now embedded in the header and references of all Cambridge Journals Online articles. The metadata is invisible to readers but can be found and downloaded by the relevant processing software to create OpenURL links for library users.

Zotero is a Firefox extension which helps users collect and manage citations. It senses COinS metadata and downloads it with one click. If you have Zotero installed you will seen an 'article' icon in the address bar when you are looking at an abstract, or a 'folder' icon when viewing a table of contents. By clicking the icon you can download the article citation or select individual articles from the table of contents.

As the Account Administrator you can upload an image that will be displayed on all the pages that your users will see. We suggest that you use your organisation's logo. In order for your image to be displayed correctly, it must be be no larger than 150 x 150 pixels.

To use this feature you must be registered as your organisation's Account Administrator and have logged in. Then click on 'Update Organisation Logo' in the 'Account Administrator Links' menu that appears at the top left-hand side of every page.

To upload a logo, click the 'Browse' button. This will open a dialogue box that allows you to browse your local hard drive (or network) and select the image you would like to use. When you have found the logo, click 'Open'. The dialogue box will automatically close. Now click 'Upload logo' and the new organisation logo will appear on the page and will be displayed throughout the site.

If you are replacing an existing logo, at this point refresh the page by hitting the F5 key on your keyboard. The new logo will now replace the old one. To remove an existing logo, click 'Remove logo' at the bottom of the page. When you are finished, click 'Done' to return you to the homepage.

The Advanced Search facility allows you to refine your searches to increase the relevance of your search results. The following search criteria can be used in an Advanced Search query:

Search On - using the drop-down boxes on the left hand side you can choose to search any of the following fields:

Anywhere - this allows you to search across all fields.

Full Text - searches only the main text of an article.

Article Title - searches in the title text.

Author - searches author names.

Affiliation - searches author affiliations listed in articles.

Abstract - searches only within the abstract of an article.

Search For - type your search terms here.

Using the AND, OR, AND NOT boxes

Use these boxes to construct more complex searches.

Some examples:

Searching for Author: Clark AND Anywhere: influenza will find all articles that contain the word influenza by all authors whose name is Clark.

Searching for Author: Clark OR Anywhere: influenza will find all articles that contain the word influenza and all articles by authors whose name is Clark.

Searching for Author: Clark AND NOT Anywhere: influenza will find all articles by authors whose name is Clark except those that contain the word influenza.

Searching for Abstract: influenza AND NOT Author: Clark will find all articles that contain the word influenza in the abstract, except those that are by an author whose name is Clark.

For searches on more than two terms the search is bracketed.

Example:

Anywhere: influenza AND Author: Clark OR Anywhere: epidemiology AND Title: community will search for (((Anywhere: influenza AND Author: Clark) OR Anywhere: epidemiology) AND Title: community) - which will find all articles that contain influenza that have Clark as an Author and community in the title and all articles that contain the word epidemiology and have community in the title.

Other ways of refining your search

Journals - by default the search is across all journal content on Cambridge Journals Online. This box allows you to narrow your search to specific journals. Use the list* to select the journal(s) you want to search across.

Limit your search by date

You can also refine your searches by publication date. (Note: the publication date is the cover date of the journal issue.)

From - select the earliest publication month and year from the drop-down menu.

To - select the latest publication month and year from the drop-down menu.

Searches can also be filtered for certain criteria and you can control how the search results will be displayed:

The Miscellaneous menu allows you to remove certain types of content from the search results: book reviews, front matter and back matter. Clicking on the 'Only search journals you have full access to' box allows you to remove from the search results any articles that you do not have full-text access to.

Specific article type - allows you restrict the article types to be displayed by choosing from a drop-down menu*

Fields to be returned - allows you to choose from a drop-down menu* which fields you would like displayed on the search results page

Once you have specified all your search criteria and search filters, click 'Search'. You can click 'Reset' at any time in order to clear the form.

*To select multiple items from any list hold down the Ctrl key (PC) or Apple key (Mac) while selecting items from the list.

The 'Search Results' page is displayed when you have carried out a quick or advanced search. It shows the criteria you used for the search and lists the articles that match them. To review your search parameters, click on the arrow in the 'Search Parameters' bar. This will display your search parameters and allow you to change your search criteria by clicking on the 'Edit Search' link.

The default order of the results list is by 'Relevancy', which displays articles in order of their relevance to the search criteria used (ie the most relevant article appears first).

How we calculate relevancy

Simple searching runs across the full text of articles and their associated metadata fields (title, author names, keywords, etc). The ranking of the results of the search is determined by the number of times the search term occurs in the full text or in any of the metadata fields, with some fields weighted to raise their results ranking. For example, the search relevancy is increased by a factor of 3 if the search term appears in the article title, by a factor of 2 if it is among the article keywords and by a factor of 1.5 if it is the author's name.

A search for Smith will usually rank results with Smith in the title or as an author above those results where Smith appears in the full text. However, if the search term appears many times in the full text of a document, it will appear near the top of any set of results. It should also be noted that the ranking takes into account the total number of words found in the document or in the metadata fields. Therefore, a single author result will be ranked above an author found in a multi-authored paper.

For example:

A Simple Search for Jonathan Smith will return a list of documents ranked as described above.

A document containing 10 occurrences of Jonathan and 10 of Smith will be listed above a document with 12 occurrences of Jonathan only.

A document authored by Michael Smith and containing the words Jonathan and Smith once each within its full text will be listed above a document authored by John Brown that also contains Jonathan and Smith once within its full text.

A document containing Physics 100 times in its full text will be listed above a document with Physics in its title.

And, of course, you can further refine your results using the Advanced Search facility.

Search results format

Each article entry in the list follows this format (unless you modified the format using the Advanced Search feature):

  1. Title
  2. Author
  3. Journal, Volume, Issue, Month, Page range
  4. DOI, online publication date
  5. Article content links (Abstract, PDF, HTML, etc...) or 'Add to basket' link

Search Facets

'Search Facets' or filters allow you to refine your search further. On the 'Search Results' page you will see a 'Search Facets' menu down the left-hand side.

If you searched across both journal and book content, you can choose to limit the search to one or the other by clicking on the relevant checkbox under 'Content Type' and then clicking 'Submit'. Note: the numbers that appear in brackets next to each filter show how many of the search results fall into that category. In the same way, you can refine your search by Subject, Author, and Year of Publication. The filters also show the journals and books that contain the most references to your search terms and you can choose to limit your search to one or more of those publications.

Search Results Options

You can control how many results appear on a page. The default value is set at 10 results per page. For more results per page, click the 'Results per page' drop-down menu, and click on the number you prefer.

You can jump to a specific page in the entire list of results by clicking the 'Go to page' menu. You can also navigate to the first, previous, next and last pages of the entire list of results by clicking the corresponding navigation links.

Almost all Cambridge Journals are available in PDF. You can access the PDF version of a journal's articles if you belong to an organisation which has a subscription or if you have a personal subscription of your own.

The PDF is accessible from a journal's table of contents or a list of search results. Clicking on the 'View PDF' link beneath an article's title brings up the article within the page you are looking at.

Viewing Articles in PDF

All Cambridge Journals Online articles are available as PDFs (Portable Document Format). PDFs show the articles on screen as they appear on the printed page. To view PDF articles, you need Adobe's Acrobat Reader. This is freely available and can be downloaded from the Adobe website.

If you are not responsible for maintaining your computers you should consult with your library administrator or IT/MIS staff before downloading any software.

Sometimes, if a PDF is particularly large, it can take a long time to load. In which case it may appear to some users to have been corrupted when, in fact, it has just not been served and will resolve itself in due course.

Printing PDFs

Note: when an article is available in both HTML and PDF, to print the article as a PDF you will need to use the Print function that appears in the PDF toolbar and not the Print function in your browser's toolbar.

You can use our online shopping facility to purchase organisational or individual subscriptions and pay-per-view articles. For some journals, you can also buy the online version of single issues.

To use the shopping basket, you must register with Cambridge Journals Online and have logged in. First, you need to find the content you wish to purchase, then click on the 'Add to Shopping Basket' link. This will take you to the shopping basket and display the item you have just selected.

The shopping basket is split into two parts - one for individual purchases and one for organisational purchases. This means we can charge/invoice you separately if you are buying some items for personal use and some on behalf of your organisation. If you are purchasing only one kind of item (either individual or organisational), you will see only one basket. If you are buying a combination of the two, you will see both baskets on the same page.

If you prefer to send your order and payment by mail, you can print out a PDF subscription form by following the link that appears immediately above the shopping basket.

To delete items from your shopping basket, click the checkbox that appears next to the item in the 'Delete' column, then click the 'Delete Item' button at the bottom of the basket. The page will be reloaded and your item removed from the basket.

To change the quantity of an individual or organisational subscription in your basket, update the number that appears in the 'Quantity' box next to the item concerned and click the 'Update Basket' button at the bottom of the basket. The page will be reloaded.

If you want to continue shopping for more items before checking out, click the 'Continue Browsing' button and you will be taken out of the basket back to the page you came from. The items you already have in the basket will be saved until you return to complete the transaction.

Once you are satisfied with the items in your shopping basket click the 'Proceed to Checkout' button. Note: checking out of individual and organisational shopping baskets are done as two separate proccesses. If you have both personal and organisational items in your basket, you will need to complete one transaction then return to the basket to complete the other.

This page allows Account Administrators to change their remote users' information and to control their access rights. (A remote user is a member of an organisation who needs access to organisational journal subscriptions from a computer outside the designated IP range.)

Information about where a journal has been abstracted or indexed can be accessed from the journal's home page or any of its related pages. Click on 'Journal Information' in the left-hand navigation panel to expand the menu, then click on 'A&I Services'.

This page lists the indexing and abstracting services that reference the journal. (Note: this information is not available for all Cambridge journals.)

Libraries provide their users with a wide variety of subscription-based electronic resources, all of which ask for usernames and passwords as part of their access control systems. Athens is a service that allows users to access these services using a single username and password. It also allows users to have remote access to organisational subscriptions when they are away from their campus.

To use this facility, an organisation must register its Athens ID with Cambridge Customer Services. Users who have an Athens username and password can then access their organisational subscriptions on Cambridge Journals Online by clicking on the 'Log in' button that appears at the top right of every page. This gives you the option of using your Athens log in and you will be asked for your Athens username and password.

If you log in from a journal's homepage, you will be returned to that page once your username and password have been authenticated.

Cambridge Journals Online now supports OpenAthens, which also allows users to access Shibboleth protected resources.

For more information about Athens and OpenAthens, visit the Athens website.

Each subscribing organisation needs to appoint an Account Administrator who will be solely responsible for purchasing its subscriptions and managing online access.

The Account Administrator:

- purchases subscriptions on behalf of their organisation

- activates and manages user access to the full text of journals

- customises the screens that library users will see

- monitors usage of the journals at their organisation

The Account Administrator can be any designated individual and is most likely to be a member of the library staff.

Registering as the Account Administrator

If you want to set yourself up as the Account Administrator for your organisation, see Help on Registration for detailed instructions. Once you are registered as the Account Administrator, and have logged in, you will have access to the 'Account Administrator Links' menu which appears at the top left-hand side of every page. To change Account Administrators, click on 'Change Administrator' in the Account Administrator's menu (see Help on Change Administrator).

Clicking on 'Export Citation' in any of these places will bring up a new page.

First choose whether to export just the citation or the citation plus the abstract.

Then choose the format you prefer by clicking on the corresponding radio button. You can choose from a number of different formats depending on what you want to do with the citation. If you are using specialist reference management software you can choose downloads that are compatible with: Biblioscape, BibTex, EndNote, Medlars, Papyrus, ProCite, Reference Manager and RefWorks. Or you can choose to export as ASCII plain text, CSV, RIS or HTML.

RefWorks direct export is also available. If you choose this option and you are already logged into RefWorks, the citations are imported immediately and can be viewed. If your RefWorks application is not running, it will be started in a new browser window or tab and you will be prompted to log in.

To email the citation, enter your colleague's email address into the first input field followed by your name, your email address and any accompanying message you wish to send, then click 'Email' at the bottom of the page. To download the citation to your computer, leave these input fields empty and click 'Download' at the bottom of the page. A 'File Download' dialogue box will appear and ask you to save the file to your computer.

If you buy your subscription directly through Cambridge Journals Online your subscription will be activated for you and there is no need for you to take any further action.

However, if you have purchased a subscription in any other way (through a subscription agent, for example, or by mailing a cheque to Cambridge University Press) you will have to activate your subscription in order to get online access to the full text of articles.

To do this, you will need to be registered with Cambridge Journals Online and have logged in. Look for a link to 'Activate Subscriptions' in the 'My CJO Links' menu which appears at the top left-hand side of every page. Clicking on 'Activate Subscriptions' will take you to a new page. Enter your subscriber number (see below) into the 'Subscriber Number' box, then click 'Activate'. To activate multiple subscription numbers, enter all your subscriber numbers, separated by a comma, into the text area and then click 'Activate multiple'.

Subscriber numbers

If our Customer Services department has your email address they will email you the subscriber number when you subscribe; otherwise they will mail it to you. If you are subscribing to the print as well as the online version of the journal, you will also find your subscriber number on the carrier sheet in the journal package.

If your subscription originates from the UK, your subscriber number will be a 6 digit number. In North America, the subscriber number is either an 8 or 9 digit number.

To personalise Cambridge Journals Online and to take advantage of all its features, you need to register. You can either do this from the home page or from any page within the site by clicking the 'Register for an Account' button which appears at the top left of every page throughout the site.

This will bring up the Registration page. Enter your details into the appropriate input fields, making sure that you complete the required fields that are marked with an asterisk (*).

If you want to be the Account Administrator (see Help on Account Administrator) for your organisation, you will need to enter your organisation's name, then click the 'I want to be the administrator for my organisation' checkbox.

You will also need to provide a username and password. The username and password must have a minimum of four and a maximum of twenty-four characters. They can be a combination of letters and numbers and are case-sensitive. We also ask you to enter a word or phrase that will remind you of your password. For example, this could be your place of birth, favourite football team or the name of a family pet.

When you have filled in the required fields you must read the 'Terms of Use' and accept them by clicking the checkbox. At this stage you can also opt to receive news and special offers from Cambridge or you can select specific subject areas you would like to hear about. If you do not want your details to be passed on to similar organisations, click the relevant checkbox. Finally, if you would like us to remember your username and password so that you can log in to Cambridge Journals Online straightaway, click the last checkbox. However, you should not do this of you are using a shared computer as other people may be able to gain access to your personal information.

When you have filled in all the boxes, click 'Submit' at the bottom of the page. You will then see a 'Registration successful' page.

Note: if you don't fill in all the required fields, or if some of the information you enter already exists on the system, you will be asked to amend the relevant fields. If this happens, you will also need to re-enter and confirm your password.

If you checked the 'I want to be the administrator for my organisation' you will now be asked to enter your organisation's IP ranges in the field provided. This is an added security measure to ensure that only authorised members of staff can set themselves up as Account Administrators. (See Help on 'Configure IP addresses' for more information about IP addresses and ranges.)

To change your password you need to be logged in. Go to the 'My CJO Links' drop-down menu at the top left-hand side of the page and click on 'Change Registration Details'.

This will bring up you registration page. Go to the 'Password' input field (you may have to scroll down to find it) and delete the existing password. Enter your new password and repeat the process in the 'Confirm Password' input field below. Type a new question or sentence that will remind you of your password in the 'Question' input field, then click 'Update' at the bottom of the page.

Cookies are pieces of information generated by a web server and stored in the user's computer. They are embedded in the HTML information flowing backwards and forwards between the user's computer and the server.

WARNING: When you register with Cambridge Journals Online you will be asked if you if you would like to accept a cookie that will remember your username and password. You should not accept it if you are using a shared computer (in a library, for example) as it will allow other users to access and change your personal and account details.

This tool allows Account Administrators to change any of their organisation's details, including any messages they may want their users to see. You need to be registered as your organisation's Account Administrator and have logged in. Click on 'Update Organisation Details' in the 'Account Administrator Links' menu at the top left-hand side of the page. You will see a number of fields already filled in with details you supplied when you registered.

Type: click on the drop-down menu to select the description that matches your organisation. This information makes it easier for us to tailor our service to meet your needs.

Organisation Name: the name of your organisation.

Display Name: how your organisation's name will appear to your users.

Display Message: use this text box to add (or change) a message that your users will see the top of each page. For example, this could be who to contact if they have a query. You can use up to 150 characters.

Address Details: this is the address we will use if we need to contact you so it is important that this is correct.

Make sure all the required fields have been filled in (marked with an asterisk), then click 'Update' at the bottom of the page.

This feature allows you to transfer the role of Account Administrator to another registered user in your organisation. To do this the new administrator will need to have already registered as a user with Cambridge Journals Online and you will need to know their username and password.

To change administrator you need to be logged in. Click on 'Change Administrator' in the 'Account Administrator Links' menu to bring up a new page where you should enter your password into the input field. Then enter the username and password of the new administrator into their corresponding input fields. Click 'Update' at the bottom of the page.

Once updated, the Account Administrator's functions are transferred to the new administrator with immediate effect. You will no longer have access to the Account Administrator tools.

To use this feature, you need to be registered as your organisation's Account Administrator and have logged in.

To give members of your organisation access to the journals you have subscribed to, you need to supply the IP addresses that identify the eligible machines on your network. From the 'Account Administrator Links' drop-down menu, click on 'Configure IP Address' to take you to a new page where you can enter new IP addresses and make changes to your existing IP configuration. However, please note that if you are part of a consortium or license agreement with us you will need to email journals@cambridge.org to set up or amend your IPs.

Adding, deleting and excluding IP addresses

If you want to add a single IP address or range, enter it into the first text box and click 'Update' at the bottom of the page. If you want to add more than one IP address or range, use the second, larger text box and enter the IP addresses or ranges with a comma (,) between them. Click 'Update' to make the changes.

All of your existing IP addresses or ranges are displayed on the page. If you wish to delete any of these, check the 'Delete' box that appears next to it/them and click 'Update'.

If you wish to exclude any of your listed IP addresses from within ranges, tick the 'Exclude' checkbox and click 'Update'. You can also enter any IP addresses you wish to exclude in the first textbox, tick the 'Exclude' check box next to it and click 'Update'.

IP addresses are made up of four numeric components separated by a full stop (period). Each numeric component ranges from 0 to 255. You can express an IP range by using a hyphen (-) and you can use a wildcard within a range by using an asterisk (*).

About IP addresses

Examples of valid IP address formats (note the numbers are used as examples only):
  • 121.18.19.20 = a single IP address
  • 121.18.19.* = all IP addresses beginning 121.18.19
  • 121.18.19.0-255 = a range of IP addresses from 121.18.19.0 to 121.18.19.255 inclusive (ie the same as the example above)
  • 121.18.* = all IP addresses beginning 121.18
  • 121.18.0-255. = all IP addresses in the range 121.18.0-255 (ie all addresses beginning 121.18)
  • 121.18.0-255.0-255 = all IP addresses beginning 121.18
  • 121.* = all IP addresses beginning 121
  • 121.0-255.0-255.0-255 = all IP addresses beginning 121

CIDR IP addresses: Cambridge Journals Online now also recognises CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) IP addresses. CIDR is a new convention for IP syntax which means that a single IP address can designate multiple IP addresses. A CIDR IP address looks like a conventional IP address except that it ends with a forward slash followed by a number called the IP Network Prefix. You can enter CIDR IP addresses in the appropriate boxes as described above.

Symbols in articles and abstracts

Every effort has been made to represent special character symbols (for example, the Greek symbol kappa) correctly within articles and abstracts. Where Web browsers cannot represent these symbols correctly, they are converted to image files.

Most Cambridge Journals are available in full-text HTML as well as PDF. You can access the HTML version of a journal's articles if you belong to an organisation which has a subscription or if you have a personal subscription of your own.

The full-text HTML is accessible from a journal's table of contents or a list of search results. Clicking on the 'View HTML' link beneath an article's title brings up the article within the page you are looking at. Immediately above the article are some useful navigational tools which allow you to go directly to the article's abstract, the PDF version of the article, or to the previous or next article published in the journal.

The article

The article's abstract appears before the article itself. A list of key headings (with links) is repeated regularly within the article to make it easy to navigate around the content. A list of figures and tables (also with links) appears in the menu on the left-hand side of the page.

Reference linking

Full-text HTML means that we can offer reference linking to help you find related research articles. When an article is cited, the date of the article will appear as a link. Clicking on that link will take you to the reference in the bibliography. If the cited article is available via Google Scholar, CrossRef or PubMed or appears elsewhere on Cambridge Journals Online a link from the bibliography will take you to it. In addition, for all cited articles in the bibliography we provide a search string you can use in an OpenURL resolver (see below).

OpenURL query

This allows users with access to an OpenURL resolver to find the article. If your library has its own resolver this will tell you whether the article is available to you as part of the library's collection. Click on the 'Open URL query data' link. This will open a new window containing a search string that complies with the OpenURL standard. If your organisation is registered with us and your Account Administrator has given us the URL of your local OpenURL resolver, a link to it will appear in the window. You can then copy and paste the search string directly into that resolver. If no link appears, you can cut and paste into any other resolver.

Google Scholar click here.
CrossRef click here.

Article Author Query

This is the first in the series of buttons down the left-hand side of the page. It runs a search on Google Scholar and PubMed for other publications by the article's author(s).

Unicode Characters

Our HTML content uses the Unicode Character Set to identify characters which are not part of the standard Latin character sets/symbols. We do this to extend the range of characters and symbols that can be displayed using an Internet Browser such as Explorer or Firefox. Many of our journals contain highly specialised content requiring character sets/symbols that are specifically for and unique to a subject area. However Internet Browsers and available fonts place limitations on the number of specialist characters that can be displayed correctly.

Support for Unicode depends on the type and version of the browser being used and the fonts installed on an individual's machine. These are configuration issues over which we have no control. Consequently, the same article may display correctly for someone with a specialist font or latest browser but incorrectly for someone with a default font or older browser. In order to minimise this discrepancy we have defined a set of Unicode characters that display correctly in the browsers that CJO supports using the default font Arial (on a PC) and Ventura (on Mac). Characters that are not in this set are replaced by images of the character or symbol. If this was not done, unsupported characters would display as an empty rectangle, not display at all or display the default behaviour for the browser being used. This has the advantage of enabling users to display the maximum number of unsupported characters. However, it also means that the level is set to a low threshold so users with specialist fonts that could view the special characters will still see the images rather than the Unicode character. There can also be mismatches in the style of the character if it should appear inside an word that is italic or bold. As browsers increase their support for Unicode we will be able to reduce the use of images in the HTML and we hope that this approach will enable you to get the most out of the HTML content.

Clicking on the subscription number for the journal you are interested in takes you to a new page. To set up an email alert that will arrive before the subscription expires, check the 'Alert me prior to expiry' box. You can then choose how long before the expiry date you want to receive the alert by checking the appropriate box: 7 days, 14 days or 28 days.

You can also choose to receive an alert after the subscription has expired as well as - or instead of - receiving alerts prior to the expiry date. To do this, check the 'Receive alerts after expiry' box.

You can then choose who will receive the email alerts. The email address you have registered with us will automatically appear in the first 'Email Address' box. If you want to change that, just type in the email address you want it to be sent to instead. If you want the alerts to be sent to some of your colleagues as well, you can enter their email addresses in the 'Copy to Email Address' text box, separated by a comma.

When you have set up the expiry alert, click 'Update' at the bottom of the page.

This feature allows users to see at a glance a journal's most frequently cited articles. The data is taken directly from the CrossRef database and updated monthly.

Go to the journal's homepage. A 'Most Cited' button appears in the middle of the page, beneath the journal description. Clicking on it will bring up the journal's 10 most frequently cited articles.

The listing is also available for each journal throughout its contents and information pages, by clicking on the 'Most Cited' link in the 'Journals Menu' on the left-hand side of the page.

This allows users to access Cambridge Journals Online using an institutional ID and password. You can use the institutional log in if your organisation has a Shibboleth-based identity management system in place, is a member of a Federation and the Federation is set up with Cambridge.

Individual users

To log in, click on 'Log in' at the top right of any page, then click on 'Institutional log in'. You will then need to enter the name and password provided by your institution. Contact your librarian in the first instance to find out if your institution has set up the Shibboleth SAML-based access management system.

Librarians

If your institution is not currently using Shibboleth and would like to do so, you need to register with the appropriate Federation. (Federations are typically operating at the national level.) Once you have registered, the Federation will inform Cambridge Customer Services so that we can enable access for your institutional users.

If your institution has set up Shibboleth and users are unable to log in using the 'Institutional log in' box, contact Customer Services for assistance.

To find out more, visit the Shibboleth website.

Social bookmarking

The 'Social bookmarking' feature provides you with an easy way to save links you want to remember or share with colleagues. Depending on which social bookmarking or networking site you use, the bookmarks can be saved either:

- so that they can be shared only within a particular community or group

- or so that they are available to all members of a particular network

The services Cambridge currently supports include: Del.icio.us, Connotea, Bibsonomy, Furl, Digg, Reddit, Facebook and Twitter.

You can create bookmarks to:

- particular journals by going to the journal homepage

- particular issues by going to the table of contents page

- individual articles by going to the article abstract or the HTML version of the article

Bookmark & Share

To share or save a bookmark to a particular journal or issue, go to the journal's homepage or the relevant table of contents. On the left-hand side of the page you will see an expandable/collapsible 'Bookmark & Share This Journal' menu listing a number of social bookmarking and networking sites. If you have already registered with one of these sites, all you need to do is click on the link of the site you belong to and the journal will automatically be bookmarked to that site. If you are not already logged into the site, it will ask you to do so before your bookmark is uploaded.

Similarly, you can share or save a bookmark to a particular article by going to the article's abstract or, if you have access to the full text of the journal, by going to the PDF or HTML version. In each case, you will see the 'Bookmark & Share This Article' menu down the left-hand side of the page.

Twitter

As well as being easily able to share information about Cambridge Journals via Twitter, in some cases you can also follow particular journals on Twitter. If this is the case, you will see a large 'Follow This Journal on Twitter' button on the journal's homepage.

Request permissions

This feature simplifies the process of obtaining permission to quote some or all of an article in another context. Note: this feature is not currently available for all journals.

You will find links to 'Request Permissions' (for participating journals) below the article title in the table of contents or search results list. You will also find links to 'Request Permission' under 'Options' in the 'Article Menu' on the left-hand side of the article's abstract and the HTML version of its full text.

Clicking on Request Permissions takes you to the Copyright Clearance Center's Rightslink service. You will be asked a number of questions about how you would like to use the content and a quick price is calculated for you. If you are happy to proceed Rightslink's online shopping facility allows you to buy the license. Onscreen help is provided on the Rightslink site.

Usage of the Cambridge Journals Online site is being constantly monitored to prevent abuse of Cambridge Journals content.

In the course of an hour, a Cambridge Journals Online user accessing the site from a single IP address is allowed to view 1,000 pages from the site as a whole, of which 100 pages may be full-text article downloads.

Proxy servers are allowed to download 4,000 pages per hour of which 200 may be full-text articles. Search engine robots are allowed to view an unlimited number of pages. If the approved number of downloads is exceeded, the user sees a message to that effect and asks them to resume activity in an hour.

Some journals make available a standard 'Transfer of Copyright' form from their homepage. This is a PDF document that journal contributors can print off, complete and mail back to the address given.

For those journals for which it is available, the 'Transfer of Copyright' form can be found in the 'Journal Information' menu that appears on the left-hand side of the journal homepage and throughout all its related content and information pages.

Note

It is common practice for journals to acquire copyright in all contributions. There are two reasons for this: (a) ownership of copyright by one central organisation tends to ensure maximum international protection against unauthorised use; (b) it also ensures that requests by third parties to reprint or reproduce a contribution, or part of it, are handled efficiently and in accordance with a general policy that is sensitive both to any relevant changes in international copyright legislation and to the general desirability of encouraging the dissemination of knowledge. You can find more information about transfer of copyright on the form itself.

This feature gives users a quick and easy way to add a reference to an article to their blog or online community profile.

To blog an article, you need to go to the article's abstract. You will find a 'Blog this Article' button in the middle of the page, beneath the abstract.

Clicking on this link displays a field containing code for you to cut and paste into your blog. It will appear in your blog as the article's title and author(s), the journal issue it appears in and it will give a link to the article's abstract.

First View articles

An increasing number of journals are making articles available online as soon as they are ready for publication - without waiting for the issue to which they belong to be published. These articles are called 'First View' articles on Cambridge Journals Online.

Journals that are publishing incrementally in this way display the First View articles on the journal homepage.

Accepted Manuscripts

In some cases, journals are choosing to make articles available as soon as they have been accepted for publication, before they have been copy-edited and proof-read. If that is the case, 'Accepted Manuscripts' will appear on the homepage in place of 'First View Articles'.

Contents Alerts

You can choose to be notified by email when new First View articles appear on Cambridge Journals Online. See Help on Content Alerts for more information.

To see which journals, volumes or articles are available free of charge, click on the dark grey 'Browse Journals' button that appears at the top of every page, then click on 'Free Content'. Or, from the home page, you can use the 'Browse Journals' drop-down menu that appears in the middle of the page, and select 'Free Content'.

This will open up a new page split into four sections: Free Journals, Free Volumes, Free Issues and Free Articles. To view the content in a particular section click on the arrow next to the section heading.

Individual journals can choose to publish manuscripts online as soon as they have been accepted for publication and before they have been copy-edited and proof-read. You may cite an article using its doi at this stage, as long as any citation makes it clear that it is not the final version. Once the articles have been finalised they will be 'published' in the volume to which they belong, and will disappear from the 'Accepted Manuscripts' list.

If a journal is publishing 'Accepted Manuscripts' they will be displayed on the journal's homepage.

If you or your institution subscribes to the journal, you will be able to access the full text of these articles. If you don't have access to the full text, individual articles can be bought online by adding them to your shopping basket.

Next to each article you will see an 'Available on CJO' date. This is the date on which the article was first published online by Cambridge University Press. Typically, articles are published online in advance of print. In the case of archive articles, however, this date will usually be after the print publication date, and will reflect when the article was digitised and uploaded to CJO.

Some Cambridge journals are encouraging readers to respond online to individual articles.

If a journal is accepting comments in this way, a link to 'Comments' will be displayed to the right of the article details in the table of contents or search results listing. (Note: this feature is not available for First View articles). The number of comments already made about the article is shown in brackets next to the 'Comments' link.

Note: to have access to this feature you need to be a registered user and have logged in and have access to the full text of the article via either a library, society or personal subscription.

Clicking on 'Comments' brings up a number of text boxes. These allow you to submit a comment and set up an email alert to let you know when any new comments are posted online.

The text boxes will display the name, email address and institutional details we hold for you as a registered user. Fill in any missing information and, if you would like to receive email alerts when new comments are posted, tick the check box before adding your comment to the 'Comment' box. Finally, click the 'Post Comments' button. All comments submitted will be moderated by the journal's editors before appearing online.

The 'Quick Search' button appears at the top right-hand side of every page throughout the site. Next to it you will see the 'Cite Search' button and underneath it links to Advanced Search and CrossRef Search.

Quick Search

Unless you have clicked on 'Cite Search' the 'Quick Search' fields will automatically display at the top of every page. First use the drop-down menu to choose which parts of the site you wish to search :

- Journal and Book Content will run a search across all journals on Cambridge Journals Online and all Cambridge Books Online content. It will search the full text and associated metadata (title, author names, keywords, etc).

- Journal Content will limit the search to all journal content.

- General CJO Site Content will search across all the information pages on Cambridge Journals Online ie everything that isn't journals content.

Then enter your search terms into the second box and click the 'Search' button.

You will find this feature in a table of contents or a search results listing if you are a library or institutional user but do not have access to the full text of an article you are interested in. It allows you to email your librarian to ask if they will buy the article on your behalf or take out a subscription to the journal as a whole.

A link to 'Ask Your Librarian' appears beneath the article's title and bibliographic details, next to 'Add to Basket'. Clicking on the link brings up a new page, displaying the article's details at the top.

If we have your librarian's details (based on your IP address) in our database, they will appear in the drop-down list of 'library administrators'. If you click on your library administrator, his/her email address will automatically appear in the 'Email' box below. If your librarian doesn't appear on the list, you can enter a new email address into the 'Email' box. You should then enter your first name, family name, department and email address in the relevant boxes.

'Your request' gives you the option of asking for just this article ('Article request') or for a subscription to the journal. The 'Message' box gives you space to make a case for why the library should make the purchase.

Finally, click 'Submit'.

Some Cambridge journals are encouraging readers to respond online to individual articles.

If a journal is accepting comments in this way, a link to 'Comments' will be displayed to the right of the article details in the table of contents or search results listing. (Note: this feature is not available for First View articles).

Note: to have access to this feature you need to be a registered user and have logged in and have access to the full text of the article via either a library, society or personal subscription.

Clicking on 'Comments' brings up a number of text boxes. These allow you to submit a comment and set up an email alert to let you know when any new comments are posted online.

To set up email comments alerts for a particular article, tick the check box and click 'Submit'.

Once you have set up some comments alerts, you can view and make changes to them by selecting 'Comment Alerts' from your 'My CJO links' drop-down menu. This will take you to a new page displaying the articles you have selected. Next to each article a drop-down menu allows you to set the frequency with which you want Cambridge Journals Online to check for comments. Your options are weekly or monthly. You also have the option to turn off the alert (and, later, to come back and re-instate it) or to delete it altogether.

To set up comments alerts for all articles in a particular journal, use the 'Content Alerts' menu, accessible from your 'My CJO links' menu.

From the search box on the CJOm homepage you can search throughout the site, or limit your search to author name by choosing the 'search authors' button.

Simply enter your search text and then select the 'Submit' button.

Please note that to optimise performance, only the 50 most relevant results are displayed for CJOm searches.
