If our library cancels an online subscription, what access rights do we retain?

Libraries retain post-cancellation access (or perpetual) rights to current issues published during the subscription period.

Post-cancellation access can be provided by Portico. Alternatively, we can provide PDFs for a modest charge to cover the preparation and delivery cost.

Please note that post-cancellation access does NOT include journal content published PRIOR to the subscription period. A library loses access to this material when a subscription is cancelled, unless it makes a separate purchase of this material.

If your library previously subscribed to the print version of a journal published by the Philosophy Documentation Center, we will account for this in the purchase arrangement for the backfile.
