Duplicate Order Check

As soon as you want to place an order for the same document twice or several times using the same loginID, this order is identified as a duplicate order on personal level* and you are notified on the “Order Details” screen that you have already ordered the same document before:

  • by a special headline message which includes the number of your previous order and a link to the details of this previous order.
  • by a new, separate “Duplicate Order Check” section at the bottom of the page which indicates “Personal Level: YES” and the number of the previous order including a link to the details of this previous order.

By clicking the linked order number, you are automatically directed to the “Order History Details” screen of your previous order. There are no costs involved with this linking procedure.

Alternatively, you can of course place a new order for the same document (by clicking “Submit Order” or “Purchase Now”). In this case, the document order is processed as usual and all regular document delivery fees incur.

Please note:

  • The duplicate order check matches your current document order against all your previous orders with status “shipped” or “billed” placed during the last 24 months with the same loginID.
  • It only applies to orders for journal articles (independent of the order form used), which are processed automatically by the FIZ AutoDoc system.
  • It is not applied to any eJournal**, inhouse** or manual orders.


You are notified on the “Order Details” screen that you have already ordered the same document before.

* Special information for corporate users of a customized FIZ AutoDoc PREMIUM solution:

  • There may be two different levels of duplicate order checks available for your company:
    • Personal Level (i.e., the optional re-routing to the “Order History Details” screen of your previous order, see above)
      and/or
    • Account Level (i.e., an internal document procurement workflow from a colleague via your internal FIZ AutoDoc administrator.
    • For more information about your corporate workflow, please contact your FIZ AutoDoc administrator.

** available only to customers of FIZ AutoDoc PREMIUM customized solution.
