Authorized users are permitted online access to those issues for which the subscribing institution or individual holds or held valid subscriptions with Tobacco Regulatory Science Group, the publisher. These authorized users may download, save, or print text, or other information for private use or research.

Authorized users are employees, faculty, staff and students who are officially affiliated with the subscribing institution, individual users who have the appropriate subscriptions to Tobacco Regulatory Science, and users who have paid access through the pay per view facility. Public access may also be provided from designated terminals within the subscribing institutions IP range. Authorized users may include persons affiliated with remote sites or campuses of the subscribing institution that are administered from the subscribing institution’s site or campus, but not persons affiliated with remote sites or campuses that have a separate administrative staff.

Regarding distance education, students need to use their university identification numbers in order to go through the university’s proxy server. Should students not enroll or graduate, they should be removed from having access. At no time should alumni be allowed to access via a proxy server.

The subscribing institution is responsible for notifying and updating its IP address and proxy server details within that IP address in order that its authorized users may have access to Tobacco Regulatory Science and will use its best endeavors to prevent unauthorized use, including making all reasonable efforts to inform authorized users of these guidelines.

Concerning consortia and institutions with multiple sites require a multi-site license. Multi-sites include organizations located in more than one city or which have multiple locations in the same city administered independently. We offer multi-site custom pricing for such situations.
