About the Journal of Rheology Online
The only way for an institution to access Journal of Rheology Online is through a domain license. These are included, at no extra charge, with every institutional subscription. If your library or institution has such a subscription, tell your librarian to submit the Online Journal Institutional User Agreement.
If you believe you have lost access to Journal of Rheology Online, your library may not have renewed its subscription. Bring this to your librarian's attention.
If you are able to access full-text articles and perform searches without being prompted for a password and username, you are doing so via a subscription paid for by your library or institution.
The Tables of Contents (PDF and HTML) are not password protected. Password/username will be requested in order to view abstracts, for searching, and for viewing/downloading full text (PDF). Password/username login will be requested for all non-IP address authenticated access, and is requested only once per "session." A "session" is defined as the period between entrance/login authentication and exit; or 15 minutes of idle time. NOTE: Password/username is not requested, at any point, for access via an institutional subscription.
- This online journal enables users to:
- Browse an HTML version of the current issue Table of Contents (TOC), which contains hyperlinks from each article to its abstract as well as options to either download full text as a PDF. From the abstract view, users can also download the full-text of the article as either a PDF or GZipped PostScript file, including all figures, tables, and references. In addition, users can select from a list of all available prior issues, and browse any HTML TOC, read abstracts, and view PDF (and PostScript) articles (or place a document delivery order).
- Browse a PDF version of the TOC of the current issue (and of all available prior issues), which contains weblinks to the full-text PDF article.
- Search a "Current Issue" database, featuring the option to view full-text PDF and/or PostScript articles from the abstract view.
- Search an "All Issues" database, featuring the option to view full-text PDF and/or PostScript articles from the abstract view.
- Inline image representations of mathematical entities that cannot be displayed as HTML characters are now available in article titles. However, "wordmath" equivalents (i.e., the word "alpha" or the string [alpha sup 2]) are retained in the "alt tags" (alternate text) associated with each image for users that have their browsers configured to suppress display of images.
- In addition to the PDF full-text option, a PostScript (Level 2) viewing option is available.
- Some cosmetic features are worth noting:
- The HTML TOCs feature an option to view the full text of the article as either a PDF file.
- The abstract displays feature multiple view article links throughout the page.
- The PACS numbers are displayed after the PII on the bottom of each abstract since the tabular array of bibliographic information has been relocated to another page. The "Additional Information" page can be accessed by following the "Additional Information" link appearing after the PACS numbers.
Here's a recommended checklist for first-time users:
- The Tables of Contents (PDF and HTML) are not password protected. Password/username will be requested in order to view abstracts, for searching, and for viewing/downloading full text (PDF).
- Password/username login will be requested for all non-IP address authenticated access, and is requested only once per session. A session is defined as the period between entrance/login authentication and exit; or 15 minutes of idle time.
