Read by QxMD

The Read by QxMD app allows you to find and access journal articles quickly and easily on your mobile device. The institutional edition provides “one tap” access to full text articles, even when off campus. Please follow these instructions to install the Read by QxMD app and associate it with your OSU account:

  • Download the Read by QxMD app (available for Apple and Android devices)
  • Open the app and click on the “Start reading” button (or click “log-in if you have an existing account)

After you have created or signed-in to your account, you will need to set-up institutional access:

  • Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen
  • Select “Account details” and click on the “Institution” field.
  • On the next screen scroll through the alphabetic list and select “Ohio State University (OSU)”
  • Click “done” in the upper right corner to save the new settings. Exit the account details box.
  • Click on the gear icon again and select “Institutional Access”
  • On this screen select “Automatic Login using Library Login” (if you would like the app to log-in to the OSU Libraries proxy server automatically)
  • Enter your OSU internet username and password. It may take a moment for your information to save. An error message will pop up if you entered your information incorrectly.

You should now be ready to use the Read by QxMD app to access full-text content.

 

A web-based version of Read by QxMD is also available at https://read.qxmd.com.
