Revisions to AIP*s Online Journal License

Please excuse cross-posting

Dear Colleagues,

AIP recognizes that needs change as libraries increasingly move towards
e-only collections. Toward that end, we have modified our online license
to allow the electronic version of journals covered by our license to be
used to fulfill interlibrary loan requests. Please note that the following
paragraph has been added to the "Permitted Use" section of our online

"Interlibrary loan: AIP-prepared electronic article files may not be
transmitted in their original digital form to any other institution or to
a non-Authorized user. A hard copy printed from the electronic files of
the journal(s) may be supplied to another institution by mail or fax or
secure transmission using Ariel or its equivalent, whereby the electronic
file is deleted immediately after printing, provided the institution is
not-for-profit and within the same country as the Subscriber. The supply
of such copies must conform to CONTU guidelines or similar restrictions to
'fair use' provisions under copyright law."
There have been other changes to this license:

* As AIP has renamed its Web hosting service, the license is now titled
Scitation Institutional Single-Site User License. It was formerly the
Online Journal Publishing Service (OJPS) Institutional Single-Site User

* The journal Geochemical Transactions has been added to the list of
titles covered by the Scitation license. Now published by AIP for the
Geochemistry Division of the American Chemical Society, this title was
formerly published by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Further information
about this title will shortly be posted to this list. Annals of Biomedical
Engineering has been deleted from the list of titles. Formerly produced by
AIP for the Biomedical Engineering Society, this title is now published by
Kluwer Academic.

Formal notice of these changes has been sent by email to all institutional
subscribers, with additional details. Please contact me if you are a
subscriber and have not received formal notification.

Sincerely yours,
Christine Orr
