Archival Access

Summary: yes
Relevant License Text:

See Schedule A.

APA’s annual data fees entitle a subscribing institution to access to the full range of content included in the subscribed-to database during their subscription period.

 If, at a later date, the customer does not renew the site license, then without paying additional data fees they will own and retain rights to access all newly published content, but not historical content, added to the subscribed-to database each calendar year that matches the year in which the start date of the customer’s subscription year falls. Such ownership and access rights are granted to the customer only for each full-year (12-month) subscription for which they paid data fees, not for a subscription of less than a full year.

 For example, if a customer had a start date for a database on 7/1/14 but had not renewed at the end of the annual subscription period on 6/30/15, the institution would be entitled to perpetual access to all newly published content, but not historical content, added to the database in 2014.
