Being an ISEBTT Member entails many benefits, such as are the reduced participation fees for events organized or endorsed by the ISEBTT. One of them is the online access to the entire Handbook of Electroporation, which is available via a special portal that is being developed for the Society and will form an integral part of our new website.
Access to the Handbook via this portal is already enabled to all Members of ISEBTT, the only things that you need before you are ready to start reading the chapters online are:
1. A web browser – almost any will do.
2. The following link: https://isebtt.electroporation.net/p/handbook. Alternatively, you can get in via https://isebtt.electroporation.net and after signing in (via Actions menu in the top-right corner) choose Handbook from the PAGES submenu that can be found in the left-hand menu (see the figure accompanying instruction number 4 on verso).
3. Your sign in credentials. These are always available via the “Forgot password?“ link on the sign in page in case you don’t know or have forgotten them. Simply enter your email address (the one which you used to subscribe to the ISEBTT membership) and click the Submit button and your credentials will be emailed to you. Please allow for a couple of minutes for the email to arrive.
4. A click on the “Click here to start reading the published chapters!” button. You will be redirected (in a new tab/browser window) to the page hosting the chapters online that is maintained by Springer. Every time you wish to access the Handbook, simply use the ISEBTT portal to get yourself redirected. That is it, you are good to go. Enjoy the good reads!
In case of any difficulties encountered either accessing the Handbook or subscribing to the ISEBTT as a member, please do not hesitate to contact either Damijan Miklavčič, the ISEBTT President (firstname.lastname@example.org), or me (email@example.com).
A Technical Note: The way the portal works is by providing the Springer system with information where the request originated from. This is why bookmarking the Springer site won’t work for you next time you wish to read the chapters, since you need to be redirected to the Handbook homepage with the correct referrer, i.e. from the Society web page. What is a referrer? From Wikipedia: “The HTTP referer (originally a misspelling of referrer) is an HTTP header field that identifies the address of the webpage (i.e. the URI or IRI) that linked to the resource being requested. By checking the referrer, the new webpage can see where the request originated.”
