Information

Please always mind the corresponding terms and conditions of use and license.

The general rule applies to publishing house offers subject to licensing:

Employees and students of the University of Cologne are allowed to access the full texts. Library users who are not members of the university can only use the media subject to licensing in the library rooms. Database contents as well as full texts of articles and e-book chapters may only be printed or stored for personal use and research purposes. Articles may not be passed on to third parties either electronically or in printed form. Systematic downloading of journal articles (e. g. all articles from a journal issue) or database contents, in particular also by robots, is contrary to licensing law and is prohibited. In the case of extensive downloads, access may be blocked by the provider not only for its own IP, but also for the entire IP area of the university.
