Order form for Copyright Permissions Purchase for documents

This order form 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.

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 on a pay-as-you-go basis. 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 click "Order Copyright Permissions" => "for Documents".

  • Enter either the DOI or bibliographic data of the document or the order number of its previous FIZ AutoDoc order. 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.
  • Select the intended use of copies, define the number of copies and click "Proceed". A page with details of your request will be displayed. Please review it and press "Request Offer".
  • 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.
  • Finally, order your copyright permission by responding to our Service Team's e-mail.
  • Once processed, your copyright permissions purchase will be included in your order history.
