Journal Article Requests

When using the DCS to search for journal article permissions, we would recommend that you use the article title, as opposed to the journal title, in your initial search. Alternatively you can use the ISSN if and search for the article name in the Quick Filter search bar.

If the article is not available you can add it using the Add New Record function.

CLA is also looking into utilising other databases for the search tool (which will hopefully make instances of titles not being in the DCS rarer) and will be in touch with users once any upgrades are made.

Once you have found the record, if not already available or correct, you can then add pagination to the search to look for the extract in question. This should be in the following method: 1-10, 25, 32, 35-37

So consecutive page ranges are separated with a dash and non-consecutive page ranges separated with a comma. 

You can also add Roman Numeral entries, but remember that these have to always be non-consecutive from Arabic numbering (for example you should never add vii-10 even if this is the consecutive page range you used) as we will be unable to work out what the number of pages are as we will not know how many Roman Numeral pages are in the book (for the example before enter vii-xxi, 1-10).

Please be aware that the DCS is currently only able to search the repository for journal articles based on ISSN and page range and therefore, in rare circumstances, you may find articles that are incorrect for your search (these would be articles from another issue of the same journal that happen to have the exact same page-range).

Therefore please preview the scans before selecting them. CLA would advise HEIs to always previews scans anyway, to ensure the information is correct and that the quality is good enough for your use.
