* What does "Premium" mean?
When the UCI Libraries (or the UC System) sponsors a premium subscription, we negotiate and sign a license directly with the publisher, and we pay a subscription fee.  This enables our users to access news from the publisher's website directly (e.g., WSJ.com) without hitting paywalls.  

 

 

Access: UCI-  Authorized Affiliates
The UCI Libraries and The Wall Street Journal entered a partnership which provides sponsored WSJ memberships.  Each activated membership comes with personalized access to WSJ.com, the WSJ mobile app, industry-specific newsletters and podcasts, and exclusive experiences with access to special events and discounts through WSJ+.
 

How do current UCI affiliates (i.e. students, faculty, and staff with an active UCInetID and password) activate their complimentary membership?

 
  • Visit WSJ.com/UCILibraries 
  • Enter your UCInetID and password to access the Create Account page. 
     
  • Use your @uci.edu email address to create your membership account.
     
  • Students need to enter their graduation date when they register for membership; students do not need to renew their membership annually.  
     
  • After your membership account is created:
    --use WSJ.com to access content.
    --download the WSJ mobile app.  When you launch the app, go to Sign In.
     
  • Access / sign-in problems?
    Clear your browser's cache and cookies, or try a different browser.  
   

Is any content from Dow Jones NOT included in our subscription?

WSJ Pro LogoWSJ Pro articles are not part of the UCI Libraries' subscription to WSJ.com.  WSJ Pro is a completely separate premium product.  Unfortunately, Dow Jones does not mark its Pro article links (e.g. with a padlock icon), so you may not realize it's a Pro article unless you see the Pro logo in the header, as well as another box prompting you to sign in or subscribe.  

 

What personal info might Dow Jones collect, and how might they use it?

When you create a WSJ.com account, your personal information is subject to use by publisher Dow Jones as described below:

  • How/when personal data is collected: Information required when you sign up for an account or create a profile; use an interactive feature (such as chat, chat bot or article sharing options); participate in a community forum. 
     
  • Data collected through third parties: If you access through a social media service, information collected may include your social media user ID and/or user name, profile picture, email address, demographic data, your interests, and your activities on other websites.
     
  • Other data collected through third party analytics providers, ad networks, and advertisers: Dow Jones can track your online activities over time and across third party websites, apps and devices. Data may include your name, contact information, your transactions, purchase history, or relationships with various product and service providers, and use of certain applications. 
     
  • Other data that may be collected: Password, birthday, education or graduation year, occupation, financial information (i.e. income, investments, portfolio transactions and value), live event accommodations, and interests.
     
  • Here's the full Dow Jones Privacy Notice.

 

How do current UCI faculty and staff renew their membership?

Faculty and staff need to renew their membership annually. 

  • You will receive an automated email from Dow Jones with a "Refresh Membership" link.  
     
  • Alternatively, try these steps:
    • Make sure you're on UCI's network by either being on campus or by using the VPN, configured to UCIFull, from off campus.
    • Clear cookies by entering www.wsj.com/delete_cookies on your browser's address bar.
    • Log out from your account by entering www.wsj.com/logout on your browser's address bar.
    • Visit WSJ.com/UCILibraries.  That link should successfully redirect you to your WSJ.com account (it may take several seconds).

 

Do students receive additional benefits from Wall Street Journal after they graduate? 

Students with activated memberships qualify for significantly reduced promotional rates that continue for two years after graduating.  Students will receive an automated email upon graduation from WSJ inviting them to subscribe at those exclusive rates. 

 

Can current UCI affiliates who already have personal subscriptions cancel their membership?

If you currently pay for a personal WSJ membership, you will not automatically be switched to the UCI Libraries sponsored membership. To cancel a personal membership and switch to the university-sponsored membership, you have can email or call WSJ support (contact info at the end of this page). 

Please tell WSJ that you want to switch to the subscription provided by the University of California, Irvine.  Partial refunds will be dispersed.  After your personal account is closed, you will be able to activate your complimentary membership sponsored by the UCI Libraries.

What's a trade publication?

Trade publications are generally written by people within an industry for people within an industry.  For example, JCK is for people working in the jewelry industry, and the Chronicle of Higher Education is for people working at colleges and universities.  Trade publications give great insight into the culture, vocabulary, and inner workings of an industry.
