Library Administrator Information Page

24 March 2021

On Tuesday 1 December 2020, AMS Journals Online moved from Silverchair to PubFactory.  Now that the platform migration is complete, we will be providing any further updates on this page. Please contact amsjol@ametsoc.org if you have any questions. 

INFORMATION FOR LIBRARY ADMINISTRATORS

If you have not signed into the new site yet, go to https://ams-journals.ametsoc.org/forgotpassword and enter your username, which is the library administrator email address we have on file for you. Once you log in, an email will be sent to that address asking you to update your password. You should follow the link in the email and update your password, after which you will have access to the Account Management System (AMX), where you can verify and update the IP addresses associated with your account on the Access tab, access COUNTER usage reports on the Reports tab, and enable/create SUSHI credentials by clicking on your account name in the upper right after clicking on the green COUNTER 5 Reports button.

DETAILS

Account Information
AMS will maintain all institutional administrator usernames and passwords. Your username in the system will be the institutional administrator email address we have on record for your account. AMS also maintains the institution’s subscription information---this information is not available in the PubFactory AMX.

IP Addresses
Existing IP addresses will be entered into the new system. You will be able to update those IP addresses as needed. 

IP addresses must be provided in IP v4 format only. We do not accept IP subnet masks or IP v6 at this time.

Class A IP ranges are also not acceptable.

If inputting a range, numerical digits and a hyphen must be used.
    Incorrect: 63.252.*.*
    Correct: 63.252.0.0 - 63.252.255.255

Usage Statistics
Our new site started recording COUNTER statistics starting on 1 December 2020. The latest reports are available to you on the Reports tab by clicking on the green COUNTER 5 Reports button to the right. To enable/create SUSHI credentials, click on your account name in the upper right after you’ve clicked on the green COUNTER 5 Reports button.

Legacy COUNTER reports generated by our previous host providers (Atypon and Silverchair) are available on the PubFactory AMX.  After logging in, click on the Reports tab and look under the Legacy Reports section.
