Online access to full-text

Subscribers to journals published by the Hogrefe group (Hogrefe Verlag, Hogrefe Publishing, Hogrefe AG) are provided with access to the corresponding full-text online. The precise conditions differ between individual and institutional subscribers.

Online subscriptions always include access to the complete archive of back issues (usually starting with the 1999 volume) during the term of the subscription.

Individual subscribers

Individual subscribers will be provided with personal access to full-text articles via email address and password. A user account for the electronic access can be easily registered at our eJournals platform Our support team at will activate the access for our subscribers.

Journals package for psychology journals:
For an additional fee of Euro 298.00 / CHF 402.00, individual subscribers can also obtain online access to the full-text (in general, including back issues from 1999 onwards) of all 30 active psychology journals as well as the 11 archive journals published by the Hogrefe group.

Institutional subscribers

Fees for access to the online journals for institutions depend on the size of the institution. For academic institutions and schools the size is determined on the basis of the number of «full-time equivalents» (FTEs; students, teaching staff, research staff) and for public libraries on the basis of the number of registered users. Hospitals will be invoiced on the basis of their total number of beds (throughout the institution, not single departments). For all other institutions (counselling services, public authorities, commercial organizations, etc.), the size is determined on the basis of the number of potential qualified users, e. g. psychologists, therapists, counsellors, social workers et al. («Relevant Professionals» or RPs).

The basis for calculating the fees is the published institutional subscription price for the respective journal including VAT (if applicable). All fees for online access exclude any applicable VAT.

The online access is usually granted via IP-authentication or Shibboleth. As an alternative we also offer access via URL-referrer.
