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
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, an e-mail to
email@example.com, or fax. (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
firstname.lastname@example.org . Note: It is the institution's
responsibility to monitor Web site usage. The Publisher is not responsible for
online user's transactions, correspondence, orders, and general usage if the
user accesses the Publisher's Web site (or other site) based on the
institutional subscriber's access information for The Journal of Clinical
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
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?
IP addresses always include 4
groups of numbers, separated by a period ( . ). Each group may include up to 3
digits, and can range from 0 to 255. For example, 188.8.131.52. The placement
of the period is important to the integrity of the IP address.
Please use a dash ( - ) to
indicate ranges. Example: 184.108.40.206-6.
To indicate that you are using all
available numbers for a particular group, you may use an asterisk ( * ).
Example: 192.192.192.* would indicate an IP address of 220.127.116.11-255.
If you use an asterisk in the
third octet, you must use an asterisk in the fourth octet as well. An example of
a valid address would be 192.192.*.*; however, 192.192.*.4 would not be valid.
Our system does not accept ranges in more than one octet.
Example: 192.192.1-2.94-108. Instead, in this case, you should submit two
ranges: 18.104.22.168-108 and 22.214.171.124-108.
Q: Can an institution order an online only subscription?
A: Yes, an institution may order an online only subscription.

requirements. In order to receive a quote for your institution, an inquiry
