IP Address registration form

This form should only be completed by the librarian or duly authorised member of staff qualified to provide all relevant IP addresses for the site, and able to accept the online licensing terms in the RSC Electronic Access Licence Agreement on behalf of all Authorised Users at the subscribing institution or company site.

The form should be used to register the IP addresses of a site that has valid, free on-line access to RSC periodicals and databases, i.e. a site at which a full-rate institutional print/on-line subscription is received.

A site is defined as one institution or company in one city, or within a five mile (eight km) radius of the subscriber's address. (A fuller definition is available in the RSC Electronic Access Licence Agreement.) IP addresses that cover only this definition should be given. 

Please do not use this form:

  • If you require access at more than one site. Instead contact your Regional Account Manager.
  • If you have already registered in previous years. There is no need to register again. 
  • If you wish to notify us of changes to your IP address(es). Instead, send the changes to the Ejournals contact below quoting your customer number and full address of your organisation. 
  • If you are having problems accessing one of your subscriptions. Instead, fill in a Technical Query Submission Form. Please check that you do in fact subscribe to the journal and year that you are trying to access.
