The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Activating Access to the Journal Online-Versions

'Activation' is the process whereby you identify yourself to the online-journals system. The process is slightly different if you are a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, an Individual (non-member) Subscriber or an Institutional Subscriber. Please choose from the following for appropriate activation instructions:


RCPsych members Activation Instructions

You will need your membership number for the activation process.
 
  1. Go to http://www.rcpsych.org/cgi/activate/basic?ORIGJOURNAL=bjp
  2. Enter your College membership number in the box asking for your 'customer number' and click the ‘Submit’ button.
  3. Complete the online form giving your email address and setting a username and password for future access.
After you have completed this process you will receive an email confirmation. You will then be able to access the full text content of the BJPsych and Advances using your username and password (set during activation) to 'sign-in'.
 
Once RCPsych members have activated their online access to BJPsych, they will automatically also be able to access and Advances online.
 
The Psychiatric Bulletin is now Open Access so no activation is needed to read the full text online.
 
RCPsych member enquiries email: onlinejournals@rcpsych.ac.uk

Individual Subscriber Activation Instructions

You will need to know your customer number (a six digit number prefixed by the letter "C"). This should be shown on the address sheet of paper accompanying your journal(s).
 
  1. Go to http://www.rcpsych.org/cgi/activate/basic?ORIGJOURNAL=bjp
  2. Enter your Customer number in the box and click the ‘Submit’ button.
  3. Complete the online form giving your email address and setting a username and password for future access.
After you have completed this process you will receive an email confirmation. You will then be able to access the full text content of the journal to which you have subscribed, using your username and password (set during activation) to 'sign-in'.
 
To get your customer number or for any other enquiry Individual (non-RCPsych member) subscribers should email: subscriptions@maneypublishing.com

Institutional Subscriber Activation Instructions

Institutional subscriptions should only be activated by the Institution's account administrator. Before activating your subscription please make sure you know your customer number (6-digit number prefixed by 'C') and the IP addresses for your institution. (An IP address is the unique numeric address of a computer connected to the internet.)
 
  1. To activate your institutional subscription go to: http://www.rcpsych.org/cgi/activate/ibasic?ORIGJOURNAL=bjp and enter your customer number.
  2. As account administrator you will need to provide your contact information (name, title, institution name, email address and telephone contact).
  3. The second phase requires that you enter the IP number(s) of all the institution's workstations that should have access to the journals. (Institutional subscriptions provide on-line access via IP address validation, not user name/password.)
You will receive an email confirmation of your on-line subscription activation. If you have made a mistake when entering your details, the system will prompt you to re-enter your details.
 
If the IP address form is not filled in by the administrator, workstations at the institution will NOT have online access.
 
You only need to activate your subscription once. If you have subscriptions to both BJPsych and Advances, you will activate both your subscriptions together.
 
For help with entering your institution's IP address, visit the 'About IP Addresses' page on BJPsych online's help section.
