New delivery option: BLDSC - Delivery in plain PDF

05. December 2017

Our longstanding partner, the British Library Document Supply Centre (BLDSC), now offers document deliveries via e-mail in plain PDF (instead of PDF/DRM FileOpen encryption).


  • Document delivery in plain PDF for journal articles of nearly 55,000 ISSNs, many ISBNs and for grey literature
  • No DRM encryption. No plugin or additional software required.
  • Cost aspect: For over 50% of these ISSNs the copyright fee is 15 GBP (~17 EURO or ~20 USD), which is the current CLA* default copyright fee and significantly lower priced than the average international copyright fee.

    *Copyright Licensing Agency. The CLA default copyright fee will raise to 17.50 GBP (~20 EURO or ~23.50 USD) in 2018

To benefit from this enhanced delivery option, we recommend you to set the default delivery format to “PDF” and to permanently activate “View all formats” in the “User Settings -> Order Details” menu. In case a document cannot be delivered in PDF, all alternative order formats will be offered.

Example: Order details page for a document to be delivered via BLDSC in plain PDF.
