Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) file Configuration Instructions

If you use a PAC file to manage your remote journal access, then you will need to add certain BrowZine and publisher sub-domains to your whitelist. Depending on your setup, the BrowZine mobile app may not work until this is done.

We have provided a listing of those domains below for your convenience:

BrowZine domains:


Please add the following domains to your PAC whitelist:

Publisher domains:


Please note that BrowZine uses article-level linking, not publisher- or journal-level linking. Many publishers use a variety of subdomains to deliver article content. Therefore, be sure to whitelist your journal publishers using a wildcard if possible, to ensure it covers any related subdomains. Some examples are:
*.wiley.com
*.springer.com
*.elsevier.com
*.ebscohost.com
Elsevier ScienceDirect users:

Elsevier ScienceDirect uses a CDN network to deliver PDF full text. The BrowZine mobile app links to PDFs wherever possible, and you will encounter access issues if the CDN network is not properly whitelisted. Therefore, please whitelist the following domain:
*.els-cdn.com

If you have any questions about these requirements, please send an email to support@thirdiron.com, referencing your institution name for fastest service.
