Institutional/Library Subscriptions to JOSPT
Print + online institutional subscriptions to the Journal include:
12 issues of JOSPT, beginning the month following the date your order is placed.
Online access at www.jospt.org to searchable abstracts and full-text articles published from the Journal's launch in 1979 to date.
Please Note: Your subscription must be current to ensure access to articles and other supplemental material less than 3 years old.
An institution may also purchase a print-only or an online-only subscription. A print-only subscription includes 12 hard copy issues; an online-only subscription includes access to everything the Journal has published since 1979 and IP address access.
Internet Protocol (IP) Address Access
Print + online and online-only institutional subscribers are entitled to Internet Protocol (IP) address access to JOSPT. Subscription administrators may enter and manage their institutions' IP addresses, including IP ranges, through My Subscriptions in My JOSPT. An administrator must first login (First-Time Login) using the institution's JOSPT subscriber number and the city to which the print issues of the Journal are mailed. Following the prompts, the administrator enters the email address to be used for the account and completes a profile. The administrator may then go to My Subscriptions, located to the right of the Welcome screen, and enter and edit the institution's IP addresses. From this point forward, the administrator will use the registered email address and either the city or the password the administrator chose and entered on the My Profile screen to login to the Journal website.
| The following definitions apply to these guidelines:|
- Internet Access is defined as viewing and using subscribed JOSPT content online via the World Wide Web.
- An Institution includes all parts of a single organization that report to the same Chief Academic Officer (CAO), Chief Executive Officer (CEO), or Director of a not-for-profit, agency, governmental or non-governmental organization, or independent company. (For multi-campus academic institutions, each organization listed in the Directory of Higher Education, or its equivalent, is considered a separate institution. Academic law and academic medical libraries may be part of a University only if they report to the same CAO or CEO.)
- Authorized Users are individuals with a current, authenticated affiliation to the subscribing Institution. They include full- and part-time students and employees (including faculty, staff, affiliated researchers and independent contractors) plus other individuals who have permission to use the public computers on the subscribing institution's campus.
- Journal: These guidelines apply to the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy (JOSPT).
- SUBSCRIPTION ACCESS: An online subscription permits unlimited simultaneous Internet Access to complete Journal content by authorized users for the entire subscription term. Secure proxy access from off-campus locations is allowed.

TECHNICAL ACCESS: Publishers intend for the JOSPT website to be available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. However, publishers will not be liable for damages or refunds should the site become unavailable temporarily or access to the site become slow or incomplete due to system back-up procedures, Internet traffic volume, upgrades, overload of requests to the server, general network failures or delays, or any other cause which may, from time to time, make Journal content inaccessible to institutional subscribers. Publishers will make reasonable efforts to notify institutional subscribers of any unusually extended interruptions and will attempt to restore access to the site as soon as possible. WARRANTY: JOSPT's publishers affirm they have obtained any and all necessary permissions to license Journal content, and that use of this content by authorized users in accordance with these guidelines shall not infringe the copyright of any third party. While they seek to ensure the accuracy of content posted online, the publishers do not warrant or guarantee its accuracy, completeness, merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose. Neither the Journal's publishers nor institutional subscribers shall be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages, including but not limited to loss of data, business interruption, or loss of profits, arising out of the use of or the inability to use the Journal content. SEVERABILITY: If any portion of these guidelines turn out to be invalid, illegal, under dispute, unenforceable, or in conflict with the law of any jurisdiction, the rest of the provisions shall remain applicable. DISPUTES: In the event of any dispute or controversy arising out of or relating to these guidelines, JOSPT's publishers and the institutional subscriber agree to exercise their best efforts to resolve the dispute as soon as possible. Any dispute that cannot be resolved by mutual agreement shall be subject to mediation or binding arbitration subject to the jurisdiction nearest to the publisher's headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. Both parties shall, without delay, continue to perform their respective obligations that are not affected by the dispute.

If the specific abuser(s) cannot be identified or stopped, JOSPT's publishers have the right to withhold, suspend, or terminate access to any or all Journal content, without liability.
