OFFERCOD3 Banner, v.2


This offer has now expired, but free content is made available on a regular basis. 

To keep up to date with the latest activity, follow us on Twitter @CambridgeJnls or find us on Facebook.


From 22nd January – 5th March, all Cambridge Journals content published in 2012 will be available for free on CJO.  All you have to do is register.

There’s a lot you can do in 6 weeks; it’s long enough to watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy 88 times, and for Usain Bolt to win 37,878 100m sprints. You could train to be a ski instructor, or take 117 trips to the moon on a NASA probe. Or, you could read the 100,000 articles that were published in Cambridge Journals in 2012…



To gain access to all this free content, you simply need to fill in
the online registration form, using the following offer code:




To access your free  content once you’ve registered for the offer, you can browse all Cambridge Journals by Title or by Subject. All 2012 content can be found under the Back Volumes tab on each journal’s homepage. Alternatively, you can view the Subscribed to list to see all the journals with 2012 volumes listed.


And that’s it! Once you’ve registered, you’re free to use your 6 weeks to browse over 300 journals, peruse over 1000 issues and save innumerable searches and bookmarks. Once you’ve experienced what we have to offer from 2012, we hope you’ll come back and read the additional c.6 million pages of content on CJO. Although that might take a bit longer than 6 weeks …

    Hello, I am only able to access abstracts of certain books. Does the free access not allow full access? I have acquired a username and password and I keep receiving an error saying that the input is not correct.

    1. eleanordrage 19 February 2013 10:44

      Hello Evrim,
      The CJO offer is for all 2012 Cambridge Journals content, but unfortunately does not include books content. However, you should be able to browse any journal title and access 2012 content for free. I hope this helps.
      Best wishes, Eleanor.

    Unfortunately the offercode I got, does not work... The login form says 'offer already activated'.
    Could you help me with this?

    Re your free offer:
    I've already regfistered. I log in. The website announces "Offer already activated". Then nothing at all is freely available.

    1. eleanordrage 19 February 2013 10:49

      I can confirm that you have successfully registered for the offer, which is why you are receiving the 'offer already activated' message. Now you have registered, you simply need to login to CJO using the login details you created (via the gold login box in the top right hand corner of the homepage) Once you have logged in, you can browse our journals by Subject or by Title, where you will find all 2012 content freely available until 5th March.
