How to access the Functional Ecology App.


Institutional Access (if you normally access the journal via your institution without needing to sign in to Wiley Online Library)

1. Register for a Wiley Online Library account, if you do not have one already.
2. Access Wiley Online Library from your institution’s network, and log in. If you are off-site and need help getting access to licensed content, contact your librarian.
3. Visit the roaming access section of "My Profile" and click "Activate Roaming Access."
4. Use your Wiley Online Library account to "Log In" to the app (see "Logging In to the App" below for more details).

You will now be able to access licensed content for 3 months, at which time you will need to re-activate roaming access.

BES Member access (even easier!)

If you normally have access via a Wiley Online Library username, simply use your Wiley Online Library account to log in to the app:

Logging In to the App

1. When you first launch the app, you'll see an overlay with a "Current Subscribers" section. From this overlay, tap "Learn how to get access".
    If you don't see the overlay, tap "Settings" (the gear icon), then tap "Get Access".
2. Tap the "Log in" button.
3. Enter your Wiley Online Library account information and tap "Submit".
4. Tap "Confirm".

The app will confirm your details with Wiley Online Library and unlock all your subscribed content.


If you are logged in to the app via Wiley Online Library, but still can't access content

This could happen for two reasons:

1. Your Online Library account isn't correctly associated with your subscription(s). Use one of the methods above to associate your account (see "Institutional Access" or "Society Website Access"), then:
    1. From within the app, tap "Settings" (the gear icon).
    2. Tap "Refresh Account".

2. You are not licensed to view the content.
    o Ask with your Institution or Society to check if they have a subscription to the journal. 
    o If you don't have on already, you may choose to purchase an individual subscription to the journal via Wiley Online Library.
    o Or for the ipad, purchase an iPad-only subscription to the journal from within the app.
