Institutional site & licence issues
To see which licenses are available to you and for a list of dos and don'ts you can also refer to this page.
What sort of access does the Oxford Journals institutional site licence give me?
The Standard Institutional site licence entitles authorised users in your institution to 24-hour access to all Oxford Journals that your institution currently subscribes to. Access is limited to a single site only. Site-wide access is arranged via your institution's secure network, but remote access can also be arranged for valid IP addresses accessing your network with a modem link, or via a proxy service. See the Institutional site licence page for further details.
What is Oxford Journals definition of a single site?
In most cases, Oxford Journals define a site as being within one metropolitan boundary i.e. within a city. So if all of your institution's buildings are within one city, you can apply for our institutional site license.
If not, organisations wishing to obtain multi-site access to subscriptions to the value of $5000 (£3200) or more may contact us for a quote to extend access to their titles across additional sites. For organisations with subscriptions below this value, a subscription must be purchased for each site that requires access. To discuss a multi-site license agreement, please email your enquiry to our Collection Sales Team or telephone +44 (0)1865 354925.
Who is entitled to access the journals online from my institution?
All members (employees, faculty, staff and students) of the subscribing institution site are entitled to online access. This includes visitors or members of the public accessing via terminals located on the site and under the control of the subscribing institution. It also includes members using their home computers, provided such use can be authenticated by the institution via password controlled access to an institutional proxy server, or via Athens.
Does Oxford Journals include alumni of an institution under the definition of Authorised Users?
Do I need a separate licence to access the Oxford Journals Online Archives?
Yes, there is a separate licence for the Archive, the terms of which vary according to whether it is being purchased on an outright or subscription basis. Details of where to obtain the licence will be provided at the point of purchase by the sales representative involved.
If I am a librarian, can I buy as a multi-site or consortium?
Yes. See our pricing options page.
