To access full-text content that is 6 months old or less or PDFs, you need to subscribe to the journal(s). The easiest (and most economical) way to subscribe to an ADA journal(s) is to become a professional member. To learn more, visit the journals' Subscription Page.
Chances are you may still need to activate your online subscription. Visit the Subscription Activation Page and enter your 9-digit customer number, which can be found on the Mailing Label of your journal. Once you've activated your online access, you can select a user name and password and use those credentials to access content on the app. If you've already activated your subscription and you can't recall your user name and password, Request Your Username and Password.
Click on the "Journals" icon on the bottom of the screen to view the latest content from the journal(s) you subscribe to.
Even if you do not have a subscription to ADA's journals, the app is still useful. You can see the latest content published, connect with ADA's Facebook page and Twitter feed, and access abstracts and bookmark them for ordering articles from your computer at a later time. You also have full-text access to articles that are freely available.
If you are using your mobile device at your institution and your institution subscribes to the publication(s), you will be able to view access-controlled content if you are logged on to your institution’s network (via your institution’s IP address). A “voucher IP” will be assigned to your device so that even if you leave your institution’s site (and network), you will still be able to view access-controlled content for up to 15 days.
You need an Internet connection for the initial app installation and to download the latest content. After content is downloaded, you will be able to read full-text articles without an Internet connection. Caching settings allow you to decide how much content will be stored on your device.
In the app, the settings menu includes an option for content retention. You may retain content for 90, 180, 270, 360 days. Bookmarked articles will be retained until you remove them from your bookmarks.
In the app, select "settings," then "retain content," and select a greater number of days to retain content. Issues and articles older than a year can be viewed on the journals' websites via diabetesjournals.org.
