Sign Up Now for Journal Access

We’re excited to announce that our open-access journal site is complete and ready for you to register.

Access to all 32 journals is available to full- and part-time veterinarians within the NVA Compassion-First network of hospitals. Our goal is to eventually provide full access for all interested technicians. If you have a technician that would benefit from access at this time, contact

How to Sign Up

  • Follow the registration link and complete the online form.
  • You must register with an NVA, NVA Compassion-First, Compassion-First or hospital If you don’t have access to any of these, you can register with a personal email.
  • Once you’ve registered and activated your account, you’ll be able to log in and access all 32 journals. (You’ll also have access to tokens, allowing you to purchase articles from Wiley journals to which we don’t subscribe.)
  • OpenAthens is the home portal where you can access all journals. We recommend you bookmark this page.

Can’t find a journal you want? Tell us what’s missing in a brief survey launching on Feb. 7. The survey will be sent to all registered site users.

Personal journal access will expire each year. You’ll receive an email before expiration with instructions to renew the service. Upon completing their programs, interns and residents will lose access as will doctors who leave the company.

If you have any questions about journal access, please contact
