ADA Journal Subscriptions

Institutional Subscriptions and Site Licenses

ADA offers institutional subscribers access to the journal(s) online at a localized site. "Sites" are considered an organizational unit, and may be academic or nonacademic. For institutions located in more than one city, each city office is considered a different site. For institutions within the same city that are administered independently, each office is considered a different site.

An institutional subscription entitles the subscriber to one print subscription plus online access from five IP addresses at one site.

An institutional site license allows unlimited access from all IP addresses at a given site.

If your issues are shipped directly from ADA, please use the 9-digit customer number on the mailing label to Activate Your Institutional Online Subscription. When activating your online subscription, you will need to provide the IP addresses for the access license.

NOTE: A regular institutional subscription is limited to five IP addresses; no wildcards or ranges can be used. A site license includes access from all IP addresses at a given location; wildcards (indicated by an asterisk) are acceptable in both the third and fourth segments of the IP address; a range (indicated by a dash) may be used in either the third or fourth segment but not in both. >>Help with IP addresses
