Access and Entitlements
Active Subscriber Access
Usage rights of active institutional subscribers are governed by the terms of your current signed and paid subscriber agreement. Distribution to parties beyond those defined in the subscriber agreement may be permitted upon explicit agreement with AIP Publishing. Additional rights may be provided to institutions purchasing extended access methods.
Authorized users are permitted unlimited online access to the material licensed and may download, save, or print text, search results, or other information solely for their private use or research. Authorized users may only use this online access in a way that conforms with all applicable laws and regulations.
The publisher of each AIP Publishing or publishing partner online journal grants authorized users permission to use brief quotations from the content of the online journals with the customary acknowledgment of the source, and to copy and transmit content from individual articles in “person-to- person” and non-systematic scholarly exchanges of information between authorized users and specific individuals.
Faculty at subscribing institutions may include articles from the licensed material in anthologies or coursepacks in print or digital form for their use in connection with classroom instruction or in reserves (print or digital) set up by Consortium libraries for access by authorized users in connection with specific courses. Copies of items in digital form that are included in online coursepacks or reserves will be deleted by the Consortium or its Members after the course is no longer offered.
Altering, recompiling, reselling, publishing, or republishing of any journal text, search result, or other information from the licensed materials, or any portion thereof, in any form or medium, is prohibited.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
AIP Publishing-prepared electronic article files may be transmitted by mail, fax, or secure, prevailing technology to another institution for non-commercial purposes (as may be best determined by the lending library). The supply of such copies must conform to legal guidelines or similar restrictions associated with ILL.
Post Cancellation Access
Customers with subscriptions are entitled to post cancellation rights for the content published during the years they held an active, paid subscription. If you no longer have a paid subscription to any AIP Publishing or publishing partner journal, then an annual maintenance fee (as specified in your institutional license) applies for continued online access to any previously subscribed content.
There is no charge for access if you still hold an active paid subscription to any journal from AIP Publishing or one of our publishing partners.
Post cancellation access applies to content back to 1999 from AIP Publishing owned journals, Physics Today, AIP Conference Proceedings, and journals from our publishing partners:
- American Association of Physics Teachers
- American Vacuum Society (AVS)
- Acoustical Society of America
- Chinese Physical Society
- Laser Institute of America
- Society of Rheology
For the Journal of the Physical Society of Japan (The Physical Society of Japan), post cancellation access is available back to 2014.
