What is a mobile optimized website? How is it different from a regular website?
A mobile website is one that has been designed specifically for the small screen of mobile devices to provide the best possible experience to mobile users.
Depending on your device, the home page of the Radiology or RadioGraphics mobile site will look similar to this:
What's the difference between an app and a mobile site?
The mobile journal websites will run on your mobile device's built-in (or downloaded) browser.
Safari on the iPhone
Chrome (default) or Firefox on Android devices
Blackberry browser on Blackberry handsets
To view the journal websites, you will not need to install anything on your smartphone or tablet.
An app, short for application, is a piece of software that must be installed on a specific device, such as iPhone or iPad. There are currently no apps available for Android devices. The journal apps are only available for iPhones and iPads, and must be downloaded from iTunes.
Is there a mobile version of both Radiology and RadioGraphics?
Yes, both sites are mobile-optimized.
What devices will the Radiology and RadioGraphics mobile websites work on?
Both Radiology and RadioGraphics mobile sites will work well on iPhones, Android OS smartphones and tablets, and the latest BlackBerry devices. CME Tests are not available on the mobile sites at this time.
What content is included in the mobile optimized websites?
- The current issue Table of Contents - Most recent issues - Figures and Tables - Published Ahead of Print articles- Keyword, title, and author search capabilities- Fully linked reference lists
The content is the same as that on the desktop version of the site.
Will the mobile redirects work on my iPad?
No. For the iPad, there is no automatic redirect to a mobile-optimized version.
Will the mobile redirects work on my Android Tablet?
Yes. All Android OS tablet devices will redirect to the mobile sites.
How can I get to the mobile sites?
1. Automatic redirect. If you try to access the Radiology or RadioGraphics website on your mobile device - smartphone (iPhone or Android), Blackberry, or Android Tablet - you will be automatically redirected to the mobile version. Note: on your iPad, you will not be automatically redirected.
2. Manually type in the URLs in your mobile device’s browser. The mobile sites are prefixed with m. To access the mobile sites manually, type in: m.radiology.rsna.org or m.radiographics.org (feel free to bookmark these sites for later reference)
3. m.RSNA.org, the mobile version of RSNA.org, where you will find links to the journal mobile sites.
4. Quck access via QR codes below. For quick access to the mobile sites, scan the following codes with your phone to go directly to the mobile versions of the sites. (QR code reader required). Bookmark the sites for later reference.
I am not a member or subscriber. Will I be able to browse the mobile sites?
You can browse table of contents and abstracts using any WiFi or internet connection. However, Full Text content will require a subscription; you may apply for RSNA membership or purchase a non-member individual subscription.
How does access to the mobile sites work for subscribers?
For individual members and subscribers, authentication is by username and password.
For institutional subscribers, authentication is by IP-range access if a user accesses the site from within a subscribing institution’s IP range.
Can I access the mobile sites if I am an institutional subscriber?
Yes, the mobile sites have the same access control rules as the main sites, so the IP access should work fine on mobile sites just as they work on the regular sites.
Please note: If you are not accessing via your institution's WIFI service, you may not be recognized as coming from that institution. You'll be recognized via IP from your wireless provider such as ATT, Verizon, etc. Make sure you have WIFI set to ON so you can connect via your institution's WIFI.
Can I access content when I step outside of my institution's network?
If you have an institutional subscription, then you will only be able to use it within your institution's IP range.
I am a librarian / library administrator; do I need a username and password to access journal content? Do users at the library need usernames and passwords?
No, individual users at institutions do not need usernames and passwords. Nor do they need new usernames or passwords. Access is arranged via authorized IP addresses.
As a library administrator, you will need your username and password to update your registration account details and access your usage statistics.
I can’t access Full Text content on my phone; I am an existing subscriber
As the content is pulled directly from the web, you will need a live internet connection to view it. Please ensure that you are connected to the internet by trying to connect to another website.
If you are connected, and are trying to access your institution’s WIFI, then make sure you have your WIFI set to ON; otherwise you will be recognized via IP from your wireless provider, such as AT&T, Verizon, etc.;
I can’t access Full Text content on my phone; I am a new subscriber
Once your payment has been processed, you will receive an email with your username and password for online access. It may take up to 24 hours to process, so you may not be able to access content on the very first day you sign up for a subscription.
Will I be able to take CME tests from the mobile sites?
No, not at this time.
Can I read the content off-line?
No, you must have a live connection to the internet to read mobile journal site content.
