Finding AMHP Articles Online

So you’re looking online for a particular article from Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance (AMHP). How do you find it?

There’s always Google or PubMed, but did you know you can access articles via the Aerospace Medical Association’s (AsMA’s) website? If you’re a member, you have access free of charge through the Members Only section.
Log in at the top right-hand side of AsMA’s homepage (www.asma.org)—just enter the email you provided to Membership and your password in the boxes. Once on the Members Only page, in the left-hand column, about one-third of the way down [see image to the left], is a section called ‘Member Services.’ The first link under that, ‘AsMA Journal Online,’ is for the current journals published from 2003 onwards and the second link, ‘AsMA Journal Archives,’ is for articles published before 2003.
   If you aren’t a member, then you can access articles by visiting the Read the Journal page (https://www.asma.org/journal/read-the-journal) {see image below]. For articles published from 2003 onwards, click on the logo for IngentaConnect. For earlier articles, click on the logo for Mira. For non-members there is generally a pay-per-view charge for articles within 2 years of publication or older than 7 years. Paying this fee allows an article to be viewed, downloaded, and printed out. In the future there will also be Open Access articles available, which will be free of charge.
   Once you are on either Ingenta or Mira, how do you find the article you are looking for? For Ingenta, if the article was published between 2015 and the present, you will click on the link for Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance. If the article was published between 2003 to 2015, click on the link for Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine. If you know the issue the article is in, you can then scroll through the list of issues available and click on the relevant issue. This will take you to the table of contents for that issue and you can then click on the link for the article. For Mira, you will need to search for either author name, article title, or issue.
   If, however, you don’t know which issue the article you are seeking is in, you can search Ingenta or Mira for that article.
On Ingenta, follow these steps to search:
   • On any Ingenta page, in the dark grey bar along the top, click on ‘Advanced Search’ [see the image to the left].
   • Enter search terms in the relevant boxes (e.g., Author, Issue, Publication, etc.). If you want to restrict the search to a particular publication such as AMHP, enter the journal’s title in the publication box. Otherwise, all Ingenta journals will be searched.
   • Click ‘Search’ at the bottom of the page.
   For Mira, if you are not a member and have not accessed Mira before, you will need to create an account using the link at the bottom of the page. If you are a member, access Mira through the Members Only page and you will already be signed in. Once you are signed in, follow these steps to search:
   • Below the ‘Word Search’ section in the top right-hand corner, there is a link for ‘Advanced Search’ [see image below and to the right]. Click on that.
   • Put in relevant information in the boxes on the next page (‘Collection’ is the year of publication) and click ‘Search.’
   • If desired, you can then use ‘Word Search’ in the top right and check the box for ‘Search in Current Results’ to get more specific results [see image below].
   We hope this article will make it easier for our members and for non-members to find articles in AsMA’s journal. Please contact the Journal Department with any questions.
