About the Journal of Rheology Online
The only way for an institution to access Journal of Rheology Online is through a domain license for access to the electronic version at no cost; for details, please see http://www.rheology.org/sor/publications/j_rheology. These are included, at no extra charge, with every institutional subscription. If your library or institution has such a subscription, tell your librarian to submit the Online Journal Institutional User Agreement.
If you believe you have lost access to Journal of Rheology Online, your library may not have renewed its subscription. Bring this to your librarian's attention.
If you are able to access full-text articles and perform searches without being prompted for a password and username, you are doing so via a subscription paid for by your library or institution.
The Tables of Contents (PDF and HTML) are not password protected. Password/username will be requested in order to view abstracts, for searching, and for viewing/downloading full text (PDF).
Password/username login will be requested for all non-IP address authenticated access, and is requested only once per "session." A "session"
is defined as the period between entrance/login authentication and exit; or 15 minutes of idle time.
NOTE: Password/username is not requested, at any point, for access via an institutional subscription.
This online journal enables users to:
- Browse an HTML version of the current issue Table of Contents (TOC), which contains hyperlinks from each article to its abstract as well as options to either download full text as a PDF. From the abstract view, users can also download the full-text of the article as either a PDF or GZipped PostScript file, including all figures, tables, and references. In addition, users can select from a list of all available prior issues, and browse any HTML TOC, read abstracts, and view PDF (and PostScript) articles (or place a document delivery order).
- Browse a PDF version of the TOC of the current issue (and of all available prior issues), which contains weblinks to the full-text PDF article.
- Search a "Current Issue" database, featuring the option to view full-text PDF and/or PostScript articles from the abstract view.
- Search an "All Issues" database, featuring the option to view full-text PDF and/or PostScript articles from the abstract view.
- Inline image representations of mathematical entities that cannot be displayed as HTML characters are now available in article titles. However, "wordmath" equivalents (i.e., the word "alpha" or the string [alpha sup 2]) are retained in the "alt tags" (alternate text) associated with each image for users that have their browsers configured to suppress display of images.
- In addition to the PDF full-text option, a PostScript (Level 2) viewing option is available.
Publication History of the Journal of Rheology
JOR has had three distinct lifetimes: (a) 1929-1932, as the Journal of Rheology; (b) 1933-1939, when the journal was subsumed as a section in Vols. 4-10 of the journal Physics (as discrete sections called "Rheology Numbers") and then the Journal of Applied Physics; and (c) 1957-present, initially named Transactions of The Society of Rheology and beginning with Vol. I, numbered with Roman numerals through Vol. VIII, then with Arabic numerals from Vol. 9 forward, and then renamed Journal of Rheology from Vol. 22 forward. As part of restoring this seminal content to JOR Online, JOR subscribers have access to the full text of older articles appearing in Vols. 4-10 of JAP (listed below). Simply log in with your JOR username and password when prompted. While the JOR search engine binds 1930-32 and 1957-present content together, the articles of interest to rheology researchers appearing in JAP between 1933 and 1939 must be searched from JAP using pertinent query terms (searching of JAP is free to all users).
Note to users:This volume listing provides an aggregation of all Journal of Rheology (JOR) content since the journal's inception in 1929. JOR has had three distinct lifetimes:
1929-1932: As the Journal of Rheology
Volume 1 - 1929
Volume 2 - 1931
Volume 3 - 1932
1933-1939: When the journal was subsumed as a section in Vols. 4-10 of the journal Physics (as discrete sections called "Rheology Numbers") and then the Journal of Applied Physics
1957-1977, initially named Transactions of The Society of Rheology and beginning with Vol. I, numbered with Roman numerals through Vol. VIII and 9-21
1978-present, the Journal of Rheology (previously Transactions of The Society of Rheology) switched to Arabic numerals starting at Volume 9 and forward.
