FIZ Karlsruhe and DeepDyve have announced an agreement to offer DeepDyve’s article rental capability to FIZ AutoDoc’s clients.

From the beginning of March 2014, FIZ Karlsruhe will include the option to rent DeepDyve articles directly from its document delivery platform, FIZ AutoDoc. Customers can continue to order full-text PDF documents but they will also have the option to rent the articles from DeepDyve at a more affordable price. The rented articles will be available for a 30-day period and can be viewed through a browser repeatedly until its expiration date. However, to ensure that no copyright is violated, these articles can neither be printed nor processed in any other way. FIZ Karlsruhe customers will have direct access to DeepDyve through their standard FIZ AutoDoc login without any additional setup.

‘FIZ Karlsruhe has always been committed to offering our customers innovative new access models, and we believe the renting of scholarly articles represents the next step in the evolution of this industry,’ said Rainer Stuike-Prill, vice president marketing and sales at FIZ Karlsruhe. ‘With DeepDyve we have found an internationally renowned partner offering a technically advanced platform.’

‘We are excited to work with FIZ Karlsruhe to bring our rental services to their international client base of scientific researchers who need simple and affordable access to this vital information,’ said William Park, CEO of DeepDyve. ‘Just as individuals have become accustomed to renting, or streaming, songs and videos, we believe scientists will come to expect article rental as a standard option among their numerous other choices for accessing scientific content.’
