Things you will need to access our Digital Journals:

This first section is a detailed explanation of what you need and how to get them. If you want a simple description, you can skip to the section below.

1. The same email address you used when purchasing digital issues or requesting a sample.

2. A digital library "access code". Note: This is NOT the same as the password used on our website. If you registered at our website to browse or to purchase items, you may have a website "password" and a library "access code". The "access code" is separate and only used to enter your digital library section.

How to get your access code: When we set up your personal library, we sent you an email with direct links to your library and a temporary access code. Each user has a separate library. Once you enter your library for the first time and confirm everything is working, you can change your default access code to something more personal by using the "reset my code" link in your library's login box.

If you did not receive our email with your temporary access code, check your spam folder. It can take 1 to 2 business days for us to move the appropriate files to our high-speed servers and set up your account. If you still haven't received the email, contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us at 951-699-5343 and request another copy of the email.

3. A computer or tablet with a reasonably large screen. Our digital journals are in a "flipbook" format which complies with most modern internet browsers (HTML5). The pages are displayed in 2 page spreads. Because they are replicas of our print version, they will not re-wrap or reconfigure the design if your screen size changes or rotate a tablet.

4. Why have separate logins?  The website "password" is what you used to register an account on our website to track purchases. The login form with a password for our website appears on every page EXCEPT the digital library page. Your website password stores your name, address, loyalty credit, etc., so you don't have to fill it out every time you make an order. We do not store your payment information on our website. Your "access code" is only used for your digital library and is separate because the large digital files are stored on a different computer system with high speed delivery capabilities. Due to our secure website, we cannot copy or see your store account's password, so therefore we cannot use it to set up your digital library on a different host server.

How to access and view your digital issues:

1. Go to this link: (link is also found in the left column of our website)

The link should take you to a page that looks like this:

2. On the right-hand side, you will see our library Login form. Fill out your email (same email you used to purchase or request a digital journal), and your "access code" that you received from our confirmation email. The access code is case-sensitive, so make sure you enter it correctly. If our system doesn't recognize your email or your access code, nothing will happen other than your login form will be blank and waiting for you to try again. If our system finds your library credentials, it will display your personal library which looks something like the picture below (depending on how many items you have purchased). If you don't know what an "access code" is, see our first section above.

3. Your digital issues should appear as previews with the issue name below each. Digital subscribers may have upcoming issues with a black preview listed. These will become active once the print and digital issues have been released.

4. Clicking or tapping on one of the previews will open the digital issue in a new window which looks like the picture below. Along the bottom are arrows to flip pages and on the right is a "full screen" mode which resizes the window to its maximum size on your computer. On the left is a button to list the "Table of Contents" and a button to display "thumbnail" previews to help you navigate.

With our digital issues, you can view them from any location in an internet browser. You can zoom in to see small type, you can search for terms and use bookmarks to jump to various articles. The URL links are active. The files are large, but we host them on a high speed server at so the viewing speed is most likely limited by your internet connections.
