The institutional rate for academic libraries includes university-wide online access via IP recognition. For all other institutions the institutional rate includes free online access via a single username and password. Human Genomics can be licensed for distribution either via institutional intranets or via the Internet. The licence is flexible and can be tailored according to your requirements. It is available to corporate and government/public libraries.
The benefits of global or site licences are:
- Accessibility – as many users as required can access the journal, instantly, from their screen
- Searchability – authorised users are able to find relevant material easily and quickly
- Cost-efficiency – the more users authorised to access the journal, the lower the cost per person
- Productivity – throughout the organisation, knowledge is accessed, accumulated, disseminated and applied simply and quickly, leaving your users with more time and more energy for the things they do best.
Licence conditions and options
Licence agreements vary according to access type (i.e. via institutional intranets or the Internet) and by institution type. There are three principal conditions that apply to all licence agreements:
- Appropriate access controls by the licensee to guarantee usage by only authorised users
- Acceptance of Henry Stewart Publications’ copyright and replication rights
- Fixed annual fee based pro-rata on the number of users who will have access to the current and back volumes required
For intranet licences, journal papers are supplied as individual PDF files. Depending on the platform and applications of the host intranet, PDF documents can be stored and retrieved using typical navigation menus and resident search engines.
For internet licences, access is through the online aggregator, http://www.metapress.com/home/main.mpx
