STN
 Information Keep and Share Program

The STN Keep and Share Program provides you with an easy way to:

Store (archive) STN search results for future access by you or others within your worldwide organization, and

Distribute (redistribute) electronic or paper copies of STN search results to others within your organization.

 

Introduction to the STN Information Keep and Share Program

The STN Information Keep and Share Program allows you to purchase the right to archive and redistribute search results from STN databases. Each STN database has a use policy that states what you may do with database records without further payment. The STN Keep and Share Program allows you to purchase the right to keep and/or share the STN records in excess of this use policy. Royalties are paid to database producers by STN service centers, who in turn pay copyright holders, as necessary.

Your organization is defined as the worldwide company or legal entity by which you are employed, including divisions, branches, subsidiaries, and affiliates, whether partially or wholly owned.

The STN Information Keep and Share Program offers you the ability to purchase archival and redistribution rights as you display or print your search results. This is called On-Demand archiving or redistribution. You also have the ability to purchase archival and redistribution rights if you have already displayed or printed the search results. This is called After-the-Fact archiving or redistribution.

The STN Keep and Share Program does not prevent you from working directly with database producers to secure archive and redistribution permissions.
