New order form for copyright permissions purchase

26. March 2014

The option to purchase copyright permissions, introduced in August 2013, is now available as a separate order form [“for Documents”], accessible via the new main menu item “Order Copyright Permissions”. It allows you to purchase individual copyright permissions, i.e., the right to make copies (paper or electronic) of a document already owned by you/your company on a pay-as-you-go basis.

According to the standard FIZ AutoDoc Terms&Conditions, the FIZ AutoDoc default usage rights are restricted as described here (e.g. restriction to the customer's own internal purposes, interdiction of scanning and electronic use, no transmission of any copies to third parties etc.). Thus, our new FIZ AutoDoc offer helps you to comply with copyright agreements and law, if additional permissions / usage rights are needed in order to make document copies. This service is provided in close cooperation with our partner Infotrieve.

The following intended uses of copies are available for copyright permissions purchase*:

  • Internal Digital General Business Use
    • to make a scanned copy or a publisher original digital copy for internal use by company employees on a single computer
  • Internal Photocopy General Business Use
    • to make a photocopy for internal use by company employees
  • External Digital General Business Use
    • to make a scanned copy or a publisher original digital copy for external use
  • External Photocopy General Business Use
    • to make a photocopy for external use
  • Regulatory Submission
    • to submit a scanned copy or a publisher original digital copy to a government regulatory authority
  • Reactive Use
    • to distribute a scanned copy or a publisher original digital copy in response to an external request (no passive distribution - must be actively requested by recipient)

* Please note: The option to store documents on a shared network drive or on the intranet are almost impossible to obtain from a publisher. They are not offered as an option in FIZ AutoDoc.

To request an offer for copyright permissions of a document already owned by you/your company:

  1. Click the main menu item “Order Copyright Permissions” and call up the new form “for Documents”.
  2. Enter either the DOI or bibliographic data of the document or the order number of its previous FIZ AutoDoc order.
  3. Or, as alternative, click the new “Order Permission” button on the history details screen of any previous FIZ AutoDoc document order to easily call up the pre-filled order form for Copyright Permissions.
  4. Select the intended use of copies, define the number of copies and click “Process”.
  5. An Order Details page is displayed. Please review it and press “Request Offer”.
  6. The FIZ AutoDoc Service Team will then process your request and contact you by e-mail with the pricing information for your copyright permission request.
  7. Finally, order your copyright permission by responding to our Service Team's e-mail.
  8. Once processed, your copyright permissions purchase will be included in your order history.

Price information: A cost estimate is mandatory. The total price for copyright permissions orders consists of the copyright fee (depending on the intended use of copies, the number of copies and the publication/publisher) PLUS a manual processing fee. The costs will be included in your monthly FIZ AutoDoc invoice. See price list.

The new order form “Order Copyright Permission > for Documents” allows you to purchase individual copyright permissions on a pay-as-you-go basis.
