The Agricultural History Review online: guidelines for library and institutional purchasers

Recent editions of the Agricultural History Review (hereafter the Review) are available online through the Ingenta portal, and comply with their rules and guidelines. Earlier editions may be accessed through the Society’s website or through JSTOR. The following outlines the rights of access of institutional purchasers of the Review through Ingenta.

  1. There is no online-only subscription, but all institutional purchasers of the Review have online viewing rights. The Review allows IP access and has no limitations on the numbers of simultaneous online users, or the proxy IPs. VPN access is not permitted.
  2. During their subscription year, Library and Institutional purchasers can view the Review online for the current subscription year and the previous three years. If an institution chooses to cancel their subscription, then access to the online texts of back issues on the Ingenta site, including those years for which a subscription has been paid, will be lost. Access to earlier issues beyond the three-year moving wall will still be available through JSTOR and the Society's own website.
  3. ‘Authorised users’ of institutional and library subscriptions to the Review are defined as full and part-time employees, retired staff and researchers holding honorary (unsalaried) positions, independent contractors, and students officially affiliated at the location of the library or institution. They may also include walk-in users of library facilities. Distance learners must be authenticated, subject to the usual rules of the host library, via proxy by the campus holding the subscription.
  4. Inter-library loan access to the Review in electronic form is not permitted under any circumstances.
  5. An institution or library with satellite and/or franchised campus(es) abroad shall purchase separate subscription for each campus.
  6. The online Review and any information or other material contained in it is made available strictly on an ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ basis.
  7. Any library or institution in a position not covered by these guidelines or in doubt about their applicability, should contact The Treasurer to seek a ruling on how they should proceed.
  8. The Review reserves the right to withdraw or alter these guidelines at any time.
