Next Step in the Evolution of Scientific Information Access: DeepDyve and FIZ Karlsruhe Partner to Offer Document Rental Services to FIZ AutoDoc Clients

Our Service for Information Providers

FIZ AutoDoc links from your information service / portal to the corresponding full text of the original document, thus perfectly meeting your customers' information needs.

This is how it works:

  • Include a "Full Text" button into your online references. This button is the connection from your information service / portal to FIZ AutoDoc.
  • As soon as your customers click this "Full Text" button, bibliographic data is taken over from your information service / portal to the FIZ AutoDoc ordering mask using OpenURL 1.0 technology.

What are the advantages for your customers?

  • FIZ AutoDoc offers automatic full-text delivery of all kinds of documents: journal articles, patent literature, research reports, conference proceedings, grey literature etc. 
  • FIZ Karlsruhe cooperates closely with important scientific libraries and sci-tech publishers, assuring fast and reliable full-text delivery.
  • FIZ AutoDoc automatically searches for a suitable document supplier and forwards your customer's orders to this supplier.
  • The document supplier delivers the documents in the chosen format (e-mail, SED (secure electronic delivery), fax, mail) and speed (standard, rush, super rush) directly to your customers.
  • At the end of each accounting period, your customers receive a collective bill from FIZ Karlsruhe covering all documents delivered during this period.*
  • The number of FIZ Karlsruhe's partners and document suppliers is continuously growing, ensuring excellent subject coverage.
  • FIZ AutoDoc has been designed with high priority to user-friendliness, providing context-sensitive aids and assistance whenever needed.

What are your advantages?

  • FIZ AutoDoc's full-text delivery adds value to your information service / portal.
  • FIZ AutoDoc's offering is the answer to your customers' demands for an integrated full-text delivery solution.
  • With the integration of FIZ AutoDoc, your own offering will cover all relevant steps from information research up to full-text delivery. It will become a true one-stop-shop!
