Browser, Email, and PDF Reader Requirements

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 JavaScript. You will not be able to venture past the initial page without JavaScript enabled.

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
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.
