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.
For educational purposes, please find more information at Bonus Copyright Access.
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.
