Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • What does Single User Access or IP Access mean?
    • Single User Access: This grants exclusive access to a specific username and password for one individual. Sharing login credentials or multiple logins using the same username will result in the user being blocked.
    • IP Access: IP-based access is provided within the geographical range of an institute. It does not require passwords, and each institute is allotted a single username for access.
  • Why is subscribing to a Subject Collection advantageous?
    • Subject-specific publications are bundled together, often at discounted prices.
    • Access to any publication uploaded to the same subject category within the subscription period is available without additional charges.
  • How can I sample the content before subscribing?
    • Sample copies can be requested by emailing subscription@acspublisher.com.
    • For institutes, a month-long Trial Access facility is available, offering a single session per institute to demonstrate how IP-based access works. This facility can be accessed on the journal home page.
  • My online access was blocked despite subscribing to the Print & Online versions. Why did this happen?
  • Print and online versions operate on different timelines. Print versions are dispatched by the publisher and are volume-based, while online versions are available from January to December (Content Publication) of the corresponding year. To maintain constant access, subscribers need to renew their online subscriptions with us.

  • Can I access back issues if I subscribe to the current year’s journal?
  • Yes, subscribing to the current issue of a journal allows access to older backups or archives, provided they are available with ACS Publisher.
