Online access for personal subscribers
What am I entitled to?
In most cases, online access to content after 1996 (where available) is free of charge to personal subscribers. In order to view content before this time, access to the Oxford Journals Digital Archive through a participating institution is required. Alternatively, you may purchase short-term access on a pay-per-article basis.
Step one - Oxford Academic Account
If you are a new subscriber or you have never accessed your journal online before, you will need to create an Oxford Academic account.
Step two - activating your subscription
After you have registered or signed in you will need to activate your subscriber number. This is the 8-digit number supplied when your subscription was first set up (it may be preceded by '0000' on correspondence), and it tells us which journals you are entitled to view. If you do not know what your subscriber number is, please contact Customer Services. We will need to know your full name and address as well as the name of the journal you are subscribed to. Once you have your subscriber number, please select Activate Subscriptions and Trials from the main menu and enter the number.
Step three - accessing online content
To access journal articles after this process is complete, simply select the journal you are subscribed to from this list and navigate to the article of interest. If you are prompted to sign in at any point, please enter the account details you created in step one.
