For Our Institutional Customers

Q: What is considered an Institution?

A: An institution is, for the most part, an organizational unit at a localized site. An institutional subscriber may be a library, university or other training facility, a medical facility such as a hospital, and others as defined by the Publisher. For print subscriptions, each campus, satellite office, branch, or division is considered to be a separate unit and each must have its own subscription. For information about online subscriptions for institutions, please contact subscriptions@psychiatrist.com.

Q: Why can't an institution place an order online?

A: Because institutional subscriptions require different processing methods than individual subscriptions, we are unable to offer online ordering for our institutional subscribers. They may submit orders by postal mail, e-mail to subscriptions@psychiatrist.com, or fax. 901-273-2747. (Publisher may need to contact the institution for additional information before the order can be fully processed.)

Q: How does an institution gain online access?

A: Institutions gain access by IP authentication. Username/password authentication is also available; however, it is not recommended. IP addresses should be submitted with your subscription order. We will also need the name and e-mail address of the person who will act as your account administrator. This person will have the authority to make changes to IP addresses by contacting our circulation department at subscriptions@psychiatrist.com. Note: It is the institution's responsibility to monitor website usage. The Publisher is not responsible for online user's transactions, correspondence, orders, and general usage if the user accesses the Publisher's website (or other site) based on the institutional subscriber's access information for The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.

Q: What if my institution's issues are mailed to a U.S. address for forwarding to my end location outside the U.S.? Can my institution still gain online access?

A: We will gladly set up online access for these types of subscribers. However, we must have the end-user's information, including full street address, IP addresses, and a contact name and e-mail address so that our records will be complete and we may better serve you.

Q: How can I submit my IP addresses to you?

A: You may submit them by mail, e-mail, fax, or phone (see Contact Information below).

Q: What form does an acceptable IP address or range come in?

A: IP addresses always include 4 groups of numbers called octets, separated by a period ( . ). Each group may include up to 3 digits, and can range from 0 to 255. For example, 192.192.192.192. The placement of the period is important to the integrity of the IP address.

Use a hyphen ( - ) to indicate ranges.

  • Example: 192.192.192.4-6.

To indicate that you are using all available numbers for a particular group, you may use an asterisk ( * )

  • Example: 192.192.192.* is equivalent to 192.192.192.0-255.

If you use an asterisk in the third octet, you must use an asterisk in the fourth octet as well:

  • 192.192.*.* (valid)
  • 192.192.*.4 (not valid).

Our system does not accept ranges in more than one octet.

  • Example: 192.192.1-2.94-108 (not valid)
  • Instead, in this case, you should submit two ranges:
    • 192.192.1.94-108
      192.192.2.94-108

Q: Can an institution order an online-only subscription?

A: Yes, an institution may order an online-only subscription. We offer access based on the institution type (tiers). Please contact the circulation department at subscriptions@psychiatrist.com for more information.

Q: Does JCP offer usage statistics to institutions?

A: Yes, we offer monthly usage reports for all institutions that access by IP address authentication. Email alerts are sent to the institutional contact notifying them of the availability of the reports

Q: How can I obtain usage statistics for my institution?

A: Usage data is available at The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry Library Service Center at http://psychiatristreports.com. To retrieve reports for your institution, you will require your username and password to log in to the service. They will be provided to you when you order your subscription.
