Providing information and support for librarians across the world is very important to us. On this page you’ll find answers to many frequently asked questions, and further details about how to order our products.

COVID-19 important information for librarians
Intellect would like to pass our best wishes to all of you around the world and hope you and your loved ones stay safe.
We are focusing on ensuring that all our institutional subscribers have full access to their journals and we are working with our hosting and distribution partners Ingenta and Turpin to ensure your staff and students can access your journals remotely without disruption. We do not anticipate any disruptions to our online services.
Ingenta Connect is integrated with Shibboleth, OpenAthens and the Google CASA service which let researchers access full text PDFs from journals to which their institution has subscribed, even when they are working at home and not using a university IP address. More information about CASA and Ingenta Connect can be found here
Please check the instructions below on accessing, setting up and activating subscriptions: https://www.intellectbooks.com/info-journal-librarians#subscription
If you have any problems with accessing or setting up subscriptions, please contact us:
We are working with our suppliers to minimise disruption to print journal distribution, however we do anticipate that there will be problems and delays in delivering your journals to you, and we may soon be unable to fulfil deliveries of print journals, and may have to put these on hold temporarily.
With Best Wishes from all at Intellect

What options are there for institutional subscriptions?
We have Print and Online (institutional), Online only (institutional) or Print (personal) subscriptions available. Single issues are available in Print only. For further information, go to our subscriptions page
Do you have subject area collections available?
Yes, we have set journal packages in our main subject areas, as well as a Full Journals Collection, all of which offer considerable discounts compared to buying journals separately. Alternatively, you can design your own Tailored Collection if you are planning to subscribe to seven or more journals. Collections provide complete back-issue access for as long as the current subscription year is maintained. Go to our Collections page
How do I order a subscription?
Links to ordering can be found on each individual journal’s webpage. You can order directly via our distributor Turpin
or your usual subscription agent. If you have a discount code, please ensure your agent has this when they place the order for you.
Is access to subscribed volumes perpetual? What happens to our access if we don’t renew our subscription?
Access to any subscribed volumes is perpetual. You will always retain access to any volumes you have paid for, even if you don’t renew your subscription for following volumes. This also applies if you have purchased an archive collection. If you have been granted free back-volume access as part of a collection, you will retain back-volume access for as long as the current subscription year is maintained. If you decide not to renew the collection, you will retain access to any previously subscribed volumes and back volumes (including the volumes for which you held the collection) but will lose access to unsubscribed back volumes. This also applies if you retain subscriptions to some of the journals in the collection, but don’t renew the collection as a whole.
Example: our institution subscribes to four journals between 2015 and 2017. We then add three new journals and subscribe to these as a Tailored Collection of seven journals in 2018. With the collection, we receive full archive access to all journals in the collection. In 2019, we cancel the collection but continue subscribing to the original four journals.
In this case your institution would retain permanent access to all seven journals for the 2018 volume, as well as access to the 2015–2018 volumes for the four journals. You would lose all other access outside of these volumes. Your ongoing 2019 subscriptions would continue as normal.
How can we get access to past volumes of a journal?
There are several ways you can get access:
1. If you subscribe to a Full Journals, Subject or Tailored Collection of seven or more journals, access to back volumes is included, free of charge, for as long as the current subscription year is maintained. Go to our Collections page
for more information.
2. You can purchase perpetual access to back volumes for a one-off fee. Please contact Turpin
for prices. If you are purchasing the full archive, and there are seven or more back volumes of the journal, you should also be eligible for an archive discount of 20% or more
. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information. Note: Online only subscriptions are available for any volume, but only the most recent three volumes are available as a Print and Online subscription.
3. For print volumes and print issues older than the most recent three volumes, please contact Periodicals Service Company, 351 Fairview Avenue - Ste 300, Hudson, NY 12534, USA. T: 518 822 9300 E: email@example.com

Please note: sites within the subscribing institution will be able to access subscribed material electronically through their institution’s subscription, provided all sites are administered under one central administration and are within one country.
Do you have digital preservation arrangements in place, such as LOCKSS?
Intellect utilizes LOCKSS, which allows libraries to preserve access to subscribed content. Further information is available at https://www.lockss.org/
Do you allow authors to put their articles in a repository?
Yes, authors can upload a copy of the accepted version of their article to an institutional or subject repository. Access must be restricted for a twelve-month embargo period after publication, to agree with our Green Open Access policy. The accepted version can incorporate changes made during peer review, but is not the copyedited or PDF version. Go to our Open Access page
Do you allow photocopying?
Yes, photocopying for internal or personal use is allowed for users registered with the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) in the United Kingdom, or the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) in the United States. The base fee must be paid directly to the relevant organization.

Do you provide free access to institutions in developing countries?
Yes. Intellect works in partnership with Research4Life
to allow institutions in developing countries free online access to our Full Journals Collection. See our Subscribe to Our Journals page
for more information.
Do your journals comply with the REF2021 OA Policy?
Yes. Our standard Green Open Access policy is REF compliant, as authors are able to deposit the accepted version of their work to a repository and set an embargo date of twelve months after the publication date. This restricts access until after the embargo period ends and is allowed under REF policy. Authors may also comply by opting for Gold Open Access with Intellect. To check the compatibility of any Intellect journal, consult the SHERPA/REF tool. Go to our Open Access page
We will be adding resources for librarians in due course. Please watch this space!
