You can choose to view one or two pages at a time. You can hide the table of contents (and expand it again). Page view shows the layout of the page.

Reading View


“Reading View” is designed for easy reading of articles. Click the “Reading View” button at the top right to go to “Reading View”. (To go back to Page View, click the button again.)

You can read completely through an article without needing to go back up the page for the next column (as you would have to in “Page View”). This is very convenient on devices with smaller screens. Use the scroll wheel on the mouse (or just scroll with your finger on a touch screen device) to scroll through the article. Use the left and right arrows at the edge of the article to go to the previous and next articles. To search the article, use the search box above the Table of Contents.

You can also use the Table of Contents to go to different articles. You can hide the TOC for a larger reading view. The button to access the TOC again stays visible. You can change the text size.

The footnotes are hyperlinked. Click the number to show the footnote. Click the screen to return to the article or press <escape>.

Click an image to display the caption. Click the screen to return to the article or press <escape>.

You can share an article using the share button; a selection of platforms is available for sharing.

To print or download an article click “Open TOC” where you can access the “Print” and “Download” buttons.

To access past issues of the Journal, click the “Issue Library” button. Alternatively, you can click on “Open TOC” and click on the link “Search All Issues”. Click on the past issue you wish to read, and it will open in the reading platform. If you do not select another issue use your browser’s “back” arrow to return to the reading platform.
