Following a successful first year of a subscription to Times Higher Education Online, we have now renewed it for a further year. Existing subscribers should have received an alert from the publisher that the THE app will be discontinued following the publication of the 6th June issue. For readers who still want to page through the digital version of the weekly THE magazine, the digital editions section of the THE web site allows you to do this, and to download the full weekly magazine for offline reading.
New users, please see our webpage for set up instructions.
University of Edinburgh current staff and students now have access to the Times Higher Education via a library subscription.
With our institutional subscription, you will be able to read online articles and digital editions using the THE website, and you will also be able to download the THE app to your device.
This service provides access to the latest weekly edition, and you can also access full text dating back to January 2013. An archive of earlier articles can be searched, and you have the option to set up a weekly email alerting you when the new edition is available.
Access is enabled via a personal account which is associated with the University using your official University e-mail address (ending .ed.ac.uk)
