Please use PJ Online if you would like to bookmark articles.

Is the App available for Windows devices?
Unfortunately not at present.  We are assessing demand for a Windows version and will take this into account when planning future versions.

Why does using the back button on my Android device take me back to the start rather than the page I was viewing?
We have created to App to allow you to view the articles in text or magazine view and to move seamlessly between the two options. As a result we have chosen to not to use the back button as the main navigation method. Please swipe or double tap to navigate through the App. The back button will take you up a level when used in text view and take you to the list of publications when used in magazine view. To move through the pages in magazine or text view please swipe. To move from text to magazine view & vice versa please double tap on the article

Can I search for a job using the PJ App?
Please use PJ Careers to search for a job. Links to PJ Careers can be found on the job pages at the back of the journals.

My membership number has a letter at the start. I am using an Android device & can only see letters in my keyboard.
