My access code doesn’t work. What do I do?
If you’ve entered your code correctly, and it doesn’t work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. It would help us if you include the name of your institution, how you were given your code, and the access number in your email.
I've had my access code for a while but haven't redeemed it yet, is there a time limit?
Yes, you must activate your code before 30 June 2021, after that it will expire.
I'm getting an error message telling me "The simultaneous user limit associated with your subscription has been exceeded" what do I do?
All users have a single concurrency (i.e there can't be more than one person using the same login to access Politics Trove) so if you've failed to log out correctly, or if your browser closes unexpectedly, or if you try to open a further session within a different browser, the system thinks you are still logged in and you'll be denied access. This can generally be avoided by:
- Always logging out at the end of the session
- Always log out when you've used a shared computer
- Only using one browser to access the site
- Waiting approximately 25-30 minutes for the session to ‘expire’
- Clearing saved cookies and cache from your browser
