Browser, Email, and PDF Reader
This system will operate more effectively with
the most up-to-date versions of Firefox, Edge, or Safari, plus
Acrobat Reader installed. We test and support these browsers on the PC, Mac, and Linux/Unix computing
platforms. Though we make every effort to support earlier versions of the above web
browsers, please take the time to update your software.
When you run the
setup program for your browser, check the defaults to insure common
utilities are available. Most importantly, make sure your browser allows
Your browser must also be set to allow Cookies. Our program writes a cookie to your
system that is active until you log out. This lets the system know you
are a registered user and the cookie is a security feature for the data contained in the
system. The cookie is deactivated once you log out and you will receive a new
one the next time you log in.
We test the software using Microsoft Outlook. The system sends
text-based messages with embedded html links. Some email programs wrap text,
possibly introducing a line break in the middle of a link. If the link is
broken, you will be sent to the login page, instead of to the manuscript.
This is because security keys are built into those links. Make sure the entire link
appears in your browser's address line. If it does not, copy and paste
the complete link into the address line to continue.
Acrobat Reader is a free software program available from Adobe. Please update your copy of Acrobat Reader to the most current version before attempting to view PDF files on this site.
