Electronic Subscription Conditions 2002
As we move into the new world of electronic publishing, there are a
number of matters that need clarifying as to what the purchaser of a
subscription is entitled to, and what they may, or may not, do with the
information that they access. Below are the Terms and
Conditions that we intend applying to electronic subscriptions to our
- If any of these conditions are unacceptable to a current
subscriber, they should contact AMPAI immediately. We will make every
effort to resolve any concerns to allow continued access to the
journals, but may, in exceptional circumstances, allow the subscription
to be cancelled and refunded.
- We would appreciate feedback from subscribers concerning these
terms and conditions.
Terms and Conditions of Electronic Subscriptions
- 1. Rights of the subscriber
- The subscription includes authorization by means of
the institution's IP address to allow site-wide
online access by authorized users via multiple
connections. If a proxy server is being
registered for access, the subscriber agrees to maintain the
security of the access by authenticating
authorized users before allowing use of the proxy to any
remote or on-site user.
- The yearly subscription allows perpetual access to that year's
volumes (rather than a year's access to all the volumes of that
- Authorized users must be employees, faculty,
staff, or students officially affiliated with the
subscriber, or on-site patrons of
the subscriber's library facilities.
- Sites may be
academic or nonacademic. For academic
institutions, different campuses are considered different
sites even if they are within the same city.
Departments or libraries of the same campus are
considered part of the same site. For
nonacademic institutions, sites are defined as geographically
separate units, even if they are within the
same city. Each branch, office, or laboratory is a
- Pricing for additional sites may be available at a substantial
AMPAI may, at its sole discretion, allow additional sites
to be covered under a single subscription. Applications for such
extensions of a subscription should be made to the AMPAI office, and
include details of the populations and locations of all the sites to be
covered under the subscription.
- Any problems with accessing the electronic versions of the
journals should be reported to email@example.com, or the AMPAI
- 2. Restrictions on subscribers
- Paper or electronic transmission of
articles for interlibrary loan
purposes is allowed unless, as a purpose or effect of such, the library
receiving such copies does so in such quantities as to substitute for a
subscription. Interlibrary loans are restricted to academic libraries
for educational purposes. The subscriber agrees to track such
interlibrary loans and report to AMPAI any library that requests more
than 6 articles per year from any one journal. (Any report should
include the requesting library; journal title; number of articles
requested; and be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org)
- The downloading of an entire journal issue or complete
journal volume in a systematic fashion is strictly
- Any attempt to use the electronic journals beyond the rights
granted in section 1 above may lead to the suspension or termination
of access rights. Any network activities that emanate from the
subscriber's site and which threaten the security or performance of
AMPAI's web server may also result in a cessation of access.
- The journals published by AMPAI are subject to copyright and
any copying must be made under the appropriate
section of the Copyright
Act 1968. (See
- 3. Disclaimers
- Although every effort will be made to ensure that the AMPAI
journals are accurate versions of the printed publications, AMPAI does
not warrant that the two versions will be identical.
- AMPAI will not be liable for any downtime or other performance
failure in its servers. Operational requirements may require that
access is temporarily interrupted from time to time. AMPAI will
however make all reasonable efforts to correct any performance or
access problems which are brought to its attention.
Any suggestions, complaints etc about this site should be
sent to the editor email@example.com
