CAN OUP JOURNALS BE ACCESSED FROM A MOBILE DEVICE?

All of our journal websites have been optimized for mobile devices, thereby enhancing the reader experience.

HOW CAN I GET TO THE MOBILE VERSION OF A WEBSITE?

If you access the journal website on a mobile device, you will be automatically redirected to the mobile version.

The mobile site is prefixed with ‘m’. So to access the mobile version manually, simply type this in. For example, http://annonc.oxfordjournals.org is http://m.annonc.oxfordjournals.org.

You can then save this page as a bookmark or favourite, so you can find it again easily.

Coming soon: Support for Symbian OS and Windows Mobile.

WHAT ADVANTAGES DOES ACCESSING THE MOBILE VERSION OF A WEBSITE GIVE ME OVER THE FULL SITE?

The mobile web interface offers the following features:

HOW DOES ACCESS TO A MOBILE SITE WORK?

NEW! MOBILE VOUCHERS

What is a mobile voucher?
Oxford Journals mobile sites mean you can access our quality content on the move from your mobile device. We’ve now made it even easier to access the research you need whenever and wherever you like. By connecting up your mobile device to your institution’s Oxford Journals subscriptions, you’ll continue to have access to this essential content, even after stepping out of your institution’s network.

So, how does it work?
1) Connect your mobile device to your institution’s wifi

2) If you access the journal website on a mobile device, you will be automatically redirected to the mobile version. If for some reason, you aren’t automatically redirected, you can reach the mobile site by adding an ‘m.’ to the beginning of the website address.

Tap the button ‘Authorise this device’ which is available on any journal homepage while connected to your institution’s network

3) Fill out the simple form with your name and email, then submit.

4) The voucher code will appear on-screen or can be sent to your email address.

5) You will then have 48 hours to apply the code emailed to you in the voucher into a page on your device.

Once activated, the voucher will give you access to journal content for 6 months

When does the voucher expire?
The vouchers are intended for a single use and should be requested when you are ready to activate it on your mobile device. The voucher supplied will expire after 48 hours and the device will be vouched for a period of 6 months. If you do not activate the voucher before the expiration date, simply request a new voucher.

The small print
The level of access granted will be exactly the same as the institution’s subscription and each mobile device must be vouched for individually. Users from mobile websites are included in COUNTER statistics reporting.

AS A LIBRARIAN, DO I NEED A USERNAME AND PASSWORD TO ACCESS THE ONLINE JOURNALS?

Individual users at institutions do not need usernames and passwords, as access is generally arranged by authorised IP addresses. As a library administrator you will need your username and password to update your registration account details and access your usage statistics.

HOW LONG DOES ONLINE ACCESS LAST?

When a user leaves the institution's WiFi access will be granted by username and password. Although it can be granted via Athens, Shibboleth logins or VPN connections usually used to get to other parts of your institutional website.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH ONLINE ACCESS?

If you experience any problems with online access, or have any other technical queries, our experienced Journals Customer Services will be pleased to assist you.
