Copying books and journals
Swedish copyright law permits individuals to copy single pages from published works. This means that it is permitted to copy a small portion of a book or a journal.
You are allowed to print and download individual articles from our electronic journals if you intend to use them for research or for non-commercial purposes.
Conditions for printing and downloading vary depending on e-book supplier.
It is often permissible to print or download a reasonable part of a book for research or personal non-commercial use. In some cases, however, it is only permitted to print or download a few pages. Other publishers allow entire books to be downloaded permanently or for time-limited offline reading. A collective agreement for all publishers is that e-books should never be passed on to other users.
