Accessing ePress publications

Access to online versions of Monash University ePress publications is by:

  • Subscription (individual or institutional) to the online version of the publication. Note that if the publication is a book rather than a journal, purchasing an online 'subscription' will give you online access to the book.
  • Pay-per article/chapter: purchase access to the online version of journal article or book chapter.

Some ePress publications are also available in print.

Abstracts are free for all users.

You can sign up for free email Table-of-Contents Alerts via our homepage.

Subscriptions

Individual online subscriptions

What do you get access to and for how long?

  • Unless otherwise advertised, access to journals is provided on a calendar year basis, terminating on 31 December each year.
    Earlybird Offers: If the subscription taken out is an Earlybird offer, the early access applies only to the online version of the publication; for example, if a subscription is for the year 2009 but the Earlybird offer has access to the journal starting in September 2008, this early access is to the online version only and does not entitle the subscriber to the print issues of the publication for 2008.
  • Access to journals includes access to back issues where those issues were published by the ePress.
  • It is currently ePress policy to make all journal content older than two years (i.e. over two years since first publication by the ePress) open access (free to all users, whether subscribers or not). Users should note that when the ePress makes content open access two years after first publication, open access to this content may be provided through a different interface.
  • Access to journals includes full-text HTML and PDF versions of papers.
  • Access to books is provided for two years from date of purchase. During that time, you may download the book for your personal access and use according to the terms and conditions of the ePress individual licence, including access and use in the period following two years from date of purchase.
  • Access to books includes access to the full-text HTML, and, as of May 2008, access to the PDF.

How do you access your subscribed content?

Access to both books and journals is by user name and password, created when you subscribe.

Downloading and storing papers

Individuals who have purchased access may download and store papers for personal use only as described in our Terms and conditions for individual users.

How do you purchase a subscription?

Click the 'purchase an online subscription' link on the homepage of the publication. Payment for individual online access must be made online with a credit card. Credit card purchases made online are processed through a secure server. When the padlock at the bottom of the screen is in the locked position, the site is using SSL RC4, 128 bit encryption.

Important note: If you are taking advantage of a special offer (for example a discount offer or a conference offer), do not use the purchase method described above. Instead, you will need to follow the payment instructions in the offer. Purchase instructions for special-offers are also often published on the homepage of the publication in the box at right labelled 'Special offers/news'.

HTML printing tips

The following information is intended to help you print HTML versions of ePress journal articles and book chapters.

  • When printing, it may be helpful to change the page orientation in your print settings to 'Landscape'.
  • If your browser is Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE), change the text size to smaller/smallest. In most versions of IE, this is done via 'View' on the browser toolbar.
  • Highlight the section that you want to print and click on 'Print Selection' from your print menu, where that is an option. This may still require the page orientation to be changed to 'Landscape' and/or the text size to be reduced.
