Uploading copies of individual images, graphs or tables from a journal article

To ensure copyright compliance you must obtain copies via the Library's Scanning Service: http://www.bath.ac.uk/library/services/scanning.html

Copyright restrictions limit scanning to at most one article or 5% (whichever is greater) of any journal issue.

To place a request, please fill in the webform: http://library.bath.ac.uk/uhtbin/bath/UNIV-BATH/openill

 

Uploading copies of journal articles written by University of Bath staff

This depends on the copyright agreement that they signed with the publisher. There is a list of current publisher copyright agreements at: http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.phpFor items not covered by this list you would need to contact the publisher for permission.

You can link to University of Bath articles in the Online Publications Store (OPUS): http://opus.bath.ac.uk/. For further details contact Opus staff opus-support@bath.ac.uk or your Subject Librarian.


Uploading copies of your own journal articles

This depends on the copyright agreement that you signed with the publisher. There is a list of current publisher copyright agreements at: http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.php.  For items not covered by this list you would need to contact the publisher for permission.

You can link to University of Bath articles in the Online Publications Store (OPUS): https://www.bath.ac.uk/opus/. All members of staff can submit their published work to OPUS. For further details contact Opus staff opus-support@bath.ac.uk or your Subject Librarian.


Uploading PDF copies of electronic journal articles from the web

While technically possible, the Library does not recommend doing this for the following reasons:

  1. The licence agreement may or may not permit this.  The library does not have an exhaustive list of publishers who allow copies to be hosted on Moodle, and would have to consider each article individually;
  2. Articles hosted on Moodle will not register hits on the publisher’s website.  By not counting this usage, there is a risk the title will be considered for cancellation, causing unnecessary work and worry.

However, we realise that some journal websites do not provide useful links, and there are some occasions where hosting the PDF on Moodle is the best option – if you would like further advice on this, please contact library-ts@rt.bath.ac.uk with details.


Uploading scanned copies of printed journal articles

Yes, but to ensure copyright compliance you must obtain copies via the Library's Scanning Service: http://www.bath.ac.uk/library/services/scanning.html 

Copyright restrictions limit scanning to at most one article or 5% (whichever is greater) of any journal issue. 

To place a request, please fill in the webform: http://library.bath.ac.uk/uhtbin/bath/UNIV-BATH/openill


Linking to electronic journal articles

There are several ways to link to electronic journal articles.

Many electronic documents, such as journal articles, are assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) by the publisher, for example 10.1111/0272-4332.211099. This is a permanent identifier for locating details, and usually an electronic copy, of the document. The DOI is more stable and persistent than a URL, often shorter, and therefore frequently the best link to use. To make a link to a DOI, add the prefix: http://libproxy.bath.ac.uk/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/ 

Hence the link for the article with the DOI given above would be: http://libproxy.bath.ac.uk/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/0272-4332.211099 

However, if your article is not at the publisher’s website, or doesn’t have a DOI (for example, it may be in Business Source Premier or another database) you should look for a permalink. This will create a link which enables use on- and off-campus.

If you are unable to find a suitable link, please contact the Library for further advice: library-ts@rt.bath.ac.uk


Inclusion of journal material in PowerPoint presentations

For e-journals, this depends on the licence agreement signed by the publisher and the Library. Please contact the Library at library-ts@rt.bath.ac.uk to check.

For print journals, this is usually allowed under the terms of the CLA HE Photocopying and Scanning licence.  To ensure copyright compliance you must obtain the material via the Library's Scanning Service:http://www.bath.ac.uk/library/services/scanning.html 

Copyright restrictions limit scanning to at most one article or 5% (whichever is greater) of any journal issue.
