- My institution has a subscription to an ASPET journal, but I am not able to see the full text of articles. I am prompted for a username and password. Why is this happening?
When this happens, the IP address for your machine is not being recognized by our computer. This failure is caused by one of three things:
- Your institutional subscription has not yet been activated
- The person who activated the online subscription did not enter all of the needed IP addresses for your institution
- The person who activated the online subscription does not realize that some subnets of your institution are routed through a proxy server
What should I do?
- Send us Feedback so we can begin to diagnose the problem
- Tell your librarian that you are having trouble accessing your ASPET journal
- My institution subscribes to more than one ASPET journal. As the administrator, do I need to activate each journal online subscription separately?
You must activate each electronic journal subscription individually, but because the computer recognizes your customer number, you do not need to re-enter all the IP addresses.
- Who from my institution can access ASPET journals?
The subscription fee allows for unrestricted Internet access at one location. Any user connecting from an authorized computer on your institutional network will be allowed access to the ASPET title(s) to which you subscribe.
- What is an Institution?
For the most part, an Institutional Subscription authorizes use at a localized site. A "site" is an organizational unit and may be academic or nonacademic. For organizations located in more than one city, each city office is considered a different site. For organizations within the same city that are administered independently, each office is considered a different site.
For example, each campus in the State University of New York system is considered a different site, and each branch or office of UpJohn Laboratories is considered a different site.
If these scenarios do not fit your organization and other factors must be considered, please contact the ASPET Content Licensing and Sales Manager, Chris Keene, for assistance.
- How does this work?
When someone attempts to use an ASPET journal, our server checks to see if the requesting computer is within the list of internet IP addresses provided by a subscribing institution. If it is, the reader will be able to use all those services enabled for institutional readers. For institutional subscribers, there are no usernames or passwords to remember, and there is no limit on the number of readers from your institution who may access an ASPET journal simultaneously.
If readers want to access an ASPET journal from computers that are not part of your institutional network, they can do so through an through a user-authenticated proxy server.
- What subscription packages are available?
ASPET Member Subscribers have access to the following for all four ASPET journals:
Tables of contents, abstracts, full text searching, full text display, PDFs for all issues back to volume 1, number 1, links to Medline and GenBank, current contents awareness with links to the journal articles e-mailed to them for each issue, use of CiteTrack, and the advantage of having password access to ASPET's journals from any computer connected to the Internet.

- How can I tell if my institution subscribes to an ASPET journal?
If your institution has a subscription, you will automatically have access to the tables of contents, abstracts, full-text searching, full text display, PDFs going back to volume 1, issue 1, and Medline and GenBank links. You will also see a button at the top of the page confirming that you are signed in as part of an institution.
If your institution has not subscribed, you can choose to access ASPET's journals with an ASPET Member subscription.
- Can my institution subscribe only to the electronic version?
ASPET's journals are available only online. Print publication ceased at the end of 2011.
- If our ASPET journal subscription expires and at some later date we reinstate our subscription, will we have access to all years of the electronic version?
When you buy a subscription to an ASPET journal, you have access to all years of the database going back to volume 1, issue 1. ASPET makes available to nonsubscribers the full text of all articles in the database from 1997 onward that were published more than a 12 months ago. "Fast Forward" publish-ahead-of-an issue author manuscripts in The Journal of Pharmacoogy and Experimental Therapeutics, Molecular Pharmacology, and Drug Metabolism and Disposition are also freely available without a subscription.
- How can I access an ASPET journal if I am not an ASPET member and I do not have access through an institutional subscription?
For articles published before 1997 or within the past 12 months, you may purchase access to individual articles using our pay-per-view system, or you may wish to apply for ASPET membership. Without a subscription you have access to tables of contents, abstracts, and full-text searching (but not full text viewing) at no cost and without having to register. All articles from 1997 onward are freely accessible 12 months after publication. All "Fast Forward" publish-ahead-of-print author manuscripts in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, Molecular Pharmacology, and Drug Metabolism and Disposition are freely accessible immediately upon publication.
