Access Full Text Articles via Proxy Server

To Find Proxy Settings Information from Within F1000Workspace:

  • Sign in to F1000 and go to your Workspace
  • Click HELP button top right
  • Select “Working with References” category on the left
  • Scroll down and select “Accessing full text articles via a proxy server”

A proxy server allows you to access articles as if you were inside your institution. If you are from a subscribing institution then your proxy URL might already have been set automatically.

Alternatively, you can insert your institution’s proxy server information manually:  

  • Sign in to F1000 and go to your Workspace
  • click your initials in the top right corner of the main F1000Workspace site (you will need to be signed in),
  • click My Account in the menu that appears, then  
  • navigate to the Proxy settings section. You can insert the Proxy URL for your institute here.
    • UNC Chapel Hill: http://libproxy.lib.unc.edu/login?url=$@
      • ‚ÄčNote that you do not click on or navigate to this URL--you enter it as the proxy URL setting as described above. 
    • You can check for UNC’s and many others here:  http://ezproxy-db.appspot.com/.
