individual article purchase

The IUCr is pleased to announce that it is now possible for readers to purchase individual articles from the journals of Crystallography Journals Online. Readers who are not subscribed to a particular IUCr journal will still be able to buy individual articles in which they are interested from that journal.

Articles can be purchased as HTML and/or Portable Document Format (PDF) files, which can be viewed for up to seven days on the Crystallography Journals Online web site, as well as downloaded by the purchaser to be stored locally. A downloaded PDF version of a paper may be viewed at any time with Acrobat Reader; a downloaded HTML version will need to be viewed on a computer connected to the Internet, so that the full set of links and images associated with the article can be seen.

Payment for individual articles is handled for the IUCr by WorldPay. Payments are made over a secure server and can be made by credit or debit card in several currencies. The cost of an individual article is currently US $40.00 for either an HTML or a PDF version, and US $50.00 for both HTML and PDF versions.

To buy an article, click on the Buy icon beside its entry in a contents listing. (Alternatively, if you attempt to view the HTML or PDF version of an article, you will be offered the chance to buy the article.) To download an article that you have purchased within the last seven days, please click here.
