There are three (3) important requirements that must be met before you can pair your mobile device to an institutional subscription:
1. You must be viewing this page from a different computer/device than the one you are pairing. Device pairing requires that the device you wish to pair is clear of any history of having visited www.liebertpub.com. If you are viewing this page from the device you wish to pair close out of your mobile browser, clear the browser cache, and access this page from a different computer/device. This should be done even if it’s not the same device.

This is usually achieved by accessing the Mary Ann Liebert website on a computer or device located within your institution, either directly or via your institution’s WiFi network. Institutional device pairing cannot be achieved any other way. You can verify this after clicking “GET PAIRING CODE” by checking at the top of your screen for a small banner displaying the name of your institution.

My Liebert Connect is a free service that provides helpful tools that allow you to customize your personal experience with your institution’s subscription such as selecting and tracking favorite journals and articles, managing citation alerts, saving content searches, signing up for email alerts, and device pairing.
