IP Access

IP Access allows unrestricted access to Philosophy Now’s website for your students and faculty. Access is controlled by IP address range which means that users can log in automatically without a password and can access philosophynow.org from any computer on your campus. They will be able to access every article from the current issue and all 3,500+ articles from past issues. Our IP Access system also supports referrer URLs and EZproxy for off-campus access. (Find out more about IP Access.)

What is IP Access?

IP Access is a widely-used system by which subscribing libraries can connect to the website of a magazine or an academic journal. Access is based on a list of IP addresses that you supply, which means that when a user on your campus visits that website, the site will recognize them as coming from a subscribing institution and will therefore allow them access without requiring a username or password.

IP Access to Philosophy Now

IP Access enables your students and faculty to have unrestricted access to Philosophy Now’s vast website. They will be able to read every article from the current issue and also all of the 3,500+ articles from all of our 150 past issues right back to 1991. Your users can access philosophynow.org from any computer, tablet or smartphone on your campus, and any number of users can access our website simultaneously.

Off-Campus Access

Our system can also be configured to allow your users access even when they are off-campus, using referrer URLs or EZproxy identification. To set up a referrer URL, you put a link to Philosophy Now on a page within a password-protected area of your library website. You then give us the URL of that page and we add it to your account. Then any user coming to Philosophy Now from that page is treated as if they are on-campus – which has been a useful tool for those working from home.
