Terms & Conditions

East View Subscription Terms and Conditions

Editorial Content: The files for East View’s online publications come directly from the individual publishers. As a matter of policy, East View does not alter the editorial content in any way. Accordingly, the online and print editions may differ slightly. All of East View Information Services’ electronic periodical publications are protected by copyright and may not be systematically redistributed, in whole or in part, without written permission.

Systematic downloading and emailing of articles as well as use of “Web spiders” or any other automated retrieval mechanisms that may burden East View’s servers is prohibited. Any use of East View’s databases beyond the scope of these Terms and Conditions may be grounds for suspension or termination of access without notice and at East View’s sole discretion.

Subscription Categories

Definition: A private individual Redistribution Rights: Limited to “Fair Use” redistribution. No systematic commercial or non-commercial redistribution allowed.

Definition: Subscription for use by students, researchers and faculty at an accredited educational establishment or public library. Redistribution Rights: “Fair Use” by library patrons only. No systematic commercial or non-commercial redistribution allowed.

Definition: Any corporation, foundation, government agency, or other legal entity. Assumes redistribution within the immediate organization to 1-5 users. Site Licenses required for groups of more than 5 users. Redistribution Rights: “Fair Use”; Non-Profit, and Commercial redistribution permitted with written permission.


East View Recognizes Three Types of Redistribution:

  1. That which falls under the “Fair Use” doctrine, and which is by its essence neither systematic nor commercial in nature. For example, this type of redistribution occurs when two scholars are conversing via email and one sends an excerpt of a publication in support of a specific professional discussion. In this case East View makes no pretense for enforcing copyrights.
  2. There is redistribution which is non-commercial but systematic, such as with a free list-serve publication, whereby copyrighted materials are routinely included.
  3. There is redistribution which is both commercial and systematic.

It is these latter two types of redistribution that our copyright policy concerns itself.

Non-Commercial Redistribution
Customers of East View’s electronic publications may redistribute them for non-commercial purposes only under the following conditions:

  • Subscribe to the publication being redistributed at the appropriate Corporate/Institutional rate.
  • Send East View your mailing list on an annual basis or have EVIS’s product/contact information posted in your material on a regular basis.
  • Sample: “Materials republished from products and services originally made available by East View Information Services. Email: [email protected] URL:”
  • Include East View on your subscription list.
  • Leave all copyright notices intact.

Commercial Redistribution
Before a customer redistributes content for commercial purposes, either online or in print, they are required to contact East View directly. Commercial arrangements are made on a case-by-case basis. East View represents various editorial boards with different prices and policies, all of which are subject to change without notice, so universal conditions cannot be specified in advance.

Pricing Categories

Pricing Categories for U.S. Academic Institutions

Annual subscription prices for online databases hosted by East View Information Services are determined by categories derived from the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, a widely recognized basis for pricing JSTOR and other products for academic and research library markets. East View assigns all accredited institutions of higher education in the U.S. (and several other countries) into one of three Categories, as follows:

Category 1.
Research-level colleges/universities widely recognized for intensive doctoral level education and research conducted extensively across a wide variety of disciplines, and belonging to the Association of Research Libraries. Also includes academic institutions and research libraries in Japan.

Category 2.
Doctoral-level colleges/universities that offer a full range of baccalaureate programs and are generally committed to graduate education at the doctoral level in a selective number of disciplines. Also includes academic institutions and research libraries in Europe and Canada.

Category 3.
Master’s, baccalaureate and/or specialized colleges/universities that typically emphasize primarily undergraduate programs with graduate education only through the master’s level, institutions conferring associate-level degrees, and specialized institutions conferring degrees in a single field such as health, law, theology, engineering/technology, business/management or teacher education. Also includes academic institutions and research libraries in Russia and China.

Please inquire for separate prices and terms available to corporations, international organizations, Federal agencies, foreign governments, and nonprofit organizations.
