Q: I tried the login help function and did not receive my information. How can I get access to the content I subscribe to?
A: It is possible the e-mail address we have on file for you is out of date. Provide your current e-mail address using the Contact Us form or call +1 224/521-9800 or 1 800/343-2227. Our team will update your contact information and send you temporary login details.

Q: How can I get the CHEST app?
A: The CHEST app is free to download through iTunes or by searching “CHEST Journal” in the App store on your device. Full articles are available only to current CHEST subscribers. Nonsubscribers will have access to tables of contents, search results, and abstracts. If you are subscriber, enter your username and password into the settings area to enjoy uninterrupted access to CHEST.

Q: Is there an app available for Android, Blackberry, and other non-iOS smartphones?
A: At present, the CHEST app is available only for Apple devices. Other device users are encouraged to use the CHEST mobile site (users accessing publications.chestnet.org from a mobile device should be automatically redirected; automatic redirect will not work on all tablets).

Q: Are CHEST Books available as an app?
A: CHEST Books are not available for download as an app, but can be accessed from through the CHEST Books mobile site (users accessing publications.chestnet.org from a mobile device should be automatically redirected; automatic redirect will not work on all tablets).

Q: I purchased electronic access to one or more books. Can I receive a print copy also?
A: The print books and e-books are sold as separate products, and no discount is available for purchasing both formats.

Q: I purchased electronic access to a book that has a publication date prior to this year. How can I access the newest edition?
A: New editions of the CHEST Books are not published annually in most cases, but content is updated online as changes in the field demand. Only the most recent edition is available online, and subscribers in good standing can access all new content published during their subscription period.

Q: Can I put the e-book on my e-reader device?
A: CHEST Books are not available for sale directly on e-reader devices (ie, Kindle, Nook, etc ). It may be possible to import a PDF of the e-book onto your e-reader device. Because each device functions differently, we recommend you consult your device manual for specific instructions. Note: there may be a charge for importing personal PDFs onto your device.

Q: Can I put the e-book on my tablet?
A: Subscribers can enjoy the complete functionality of the e-books through the online browser on a tablet. Each device works differently, but often it is not possible to download a PDF to the device. In some instances, you may be able to use an app that serves as a container for PDFs and other documents. Some of these apps also include annotation and note-taking abilities (eg, iAnnotate for iPad®). We recommend that you consult your device manual for further details and prior to purchasing additional apps.
