New regulations for readers

28 February 2018

In using copyright protected material for education purposes, universities must comply with new regulations. This 'Easy Access Regulation' differentiates between short and long extracts.

The former are paid for by the UvA on a yearly basis and need not be registered. The latter require permission be obtained beforehand. Short extracts are a maximum of fifty pages provided it is less than ¼ of the books or journal issue. Permission for long extracts can be sought via Stichting PRO’s web portal using the client number and one’s faculty login codes. Please contact your reader coordinator.

Exceptions to the easy access regulation are: copyright free material, publications with a Creative Commons license, and e-books or journals which have been either partly or completely paid off (see the license list).
