Submitting requests to ArticleExpress:>

Please submit only 1 article or book chapter per request. This helps our staff effectively track and manage requests.

Accurate and complete citation information will enable us to process requests in the shortest possible time.

You will receive email notification when your requested material is available. Documents will be available for your use for 21 days. These items are for personal research use only, and should not be shared or distributed. 

Check on the status of your requests by logging into your ArticleExpress account and navigating down to "Reviewing requests."

There is no limit on the number of requests you can submit via the service, however we suggest that you submit no more than 5 per day. Our goal is to fill requests as quickly as possible. If a large number of requests are submitted in a day, delivery time may increase.

Keep requests for an article or chapter to 50 scanned pages or fewer. Please limit requests to no more than 3 chapters from the same book or 3 articles from the same journal issue. Our document suppliers may not fulfill requests for more than these amounts.

With monographs, if more than 50 pages or 3 chapters are needed, we urge you to check out the book or request it via BorrowDirect.
