Accessing JCMS


Some links on and in our quarterly emails will take you to paywalled content on Project Muse’s website. SCMS members and other JCMS subscribers have digital access to JCMS (from 1999 to the current issue). To access JCMS using the SCMS proxy, click here. You will be asked to log in using your credentials. Once you log in, simply click on the link that reads “Click Here for Access.” Once you do that, you’ll be taken to the JCMS homepage on Project Muse. And, more to the point, you’ll be logged into a proxy which will give you access to JCMS on Project Muse: all the links on our website and in our email should work as normal.

If you have access to JCMS on Project Muse through an institutional proxy (e.g., through your college or university library), then you can use that instead if you prefer. Simply log in through your library (or other institutional portal) as you normally would. (You may well be asked to log in through your institution when you first click on a link on our website or in our emails.)If your browser is set up to use your institution’s proxy automatically, and your institution does not have access to JCMS, you may need to use a different browser, reconfigure your proxy settings, or use “private” browsing to access JCMS through the SCMS proxy.

Note for users of Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge: Recent updates to Chrome and Edge have made it necessary to change your default settings for the SCMS proxy to work. You may wish to use Safari or Firefox to avoid having to make changes. Alternately, you can change the relevant setting by entering chrome://flags/#reduced-referrer-granularity into your browser’s address bar, hitting enter, and changing the “Reduce default 'referer' header granularity” setting from “Default” to “Disabled.” You will need to restart your browser.

We are not in a position to offer comprehensive technical support, unfortunately. If you have difficulty accessing JCMS through the SCMS proxy, we suggest that you first seek help from Project Muse. If they are not able to help you, you may email and we will do your best to answer questions as quickly as we can. (That said, “we” are a single professor, and it may take us some time to get back to you if we receive many queries.)
