What should I do?
There are two possible reasons. First, if your institution subscribes to the Print Plus Online journal(s), your institution has not yet activated its institutional subscription to the online version(s). Second, your institution may subscribe to the print version only. Full text online access is available only to institutional Print Plus Online subscribers. Notify your library that you would like access to the Journals of Gerontology Series A, the Journals of Gerontology Series B, and The Gerontologist Online, and encourage your librarian to activate the online subscription or upgrade to Print Plus Online.
The Print Plus Online subscription fee allows for unrestricted Internet access at one location for the journal(s) to which your institution subscribes. Any user connecting from an authorized computer on your institutional network will be allowed access to the online journal(s).
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. (Please see our Guidelines for Institutional Access.)
When someone attempts to use one of GSA's online journals, our server checks to see if the requesting computer is within the list of internet IP address 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 currently no limit on the number of readers from your institution who may access GSA's online journals simultaneously.
If readers want to access GSA's online journals from computers that are not part of your institutional network (e.g., through dial-in or telnet through a commercial Internet service provider) they can do so only through a member subscription.
If your institution has a print plus online subscription to one of these journals, you'll automatically have access to the tables of contents, abstracts, full-text searching, full text display, PDFs, Medline and GenBank links, and future tables of contents. You'll also see a button at the top of the page confirming you're signed in as part of an institution.
If your institution does not have a print plus online subscription, or if you wish to take advantage of the additional services available to member subscribers, you can choose to access GSA's online journals with a member subscription.
No, at the present time, the electronic version is provided to Print Plus Online subscribers as an added benefit.
Yes, institutions and individuals will be able to receive the paper version for the foreseeable future. At some time, the Society might decide to allow separate subscriptions for the electronic and paper versions.
Yes, when you buy a Print Plus Online subscription to one of GSA's journals, you have access to all years of the database.
Without a subscription you have access to the Table of Contents, abstracts, and full text searching (but not full text viewing) at no cost and without having to register.
