Does JHU have free or discounted access to "dot com" newspaper/ magazine sites?
In general, use the Find It Journal Linker to check if JH subscribes to a newspaper or journal. Most of these are available to JH users through platforms like ProQuest, etc., rather than the ".com" sites you access when subscribing as an individual.
These sites require JHED login from JHU links:
- Economist.com (note: After clicking on the above link, you may still see a "Sign In" option. You don't need to use that - you should be able to access all full text)
- The Diplomat.com
Free access to current JH affiliates via account set-up:
New York Times.com: JH affiliates can register for free NYT content via the New York Times Digital Edition. For full instructions on access, click here. This version works with desktop computers, tablets, mobile devices and the NYT app, but does not work with Kindle.
Financial Times.com: JH affiliates can register for free ft.com content via the Financial Times Digital Edition. The first time you click on the link, you'll need to create an account using your JH email. After you set that up, you can login to FT.com like a regular subscriber.
Wall Street Journal.com: JH affiliates can register for free wsj.com content via wsj.com/JohnsHopkins The first time you click on the link, you'll need to create an account using your JH email. After you set that up, you can login to wsj.com like a regular subscriber.

JH supplies free access via Find It links, but we do not have the .com version:
