Each item should carry an appropriate acknowledgment of the source, copyright, and publisher, and the links to such items shall be deleted by the Subscriber when they are no longer required for such purpose.
Approximately 90 days after the expiration of an annual subscription term for full text content, Philosophy Documentation Center can provide, upon request, an archival (non-searchable) file on DVD-ROM or other appropriate media as determined by Philosophy Documentation Center, containing the content of all current issues of the Licensed Material published online during the 12-month subscription term. The cost of providing this archival file shall be paid by the Subscribing Institution. This archiving provision does not apply to discontinued journals or series provided on this website, or to collections of back issues or volumes of continuing publications.
Philosophy Documentation Center has also arranged for post-cancellation access to current content through PORTICO. This arrangement is subject to permission from the publishers of the Licensed Material on our site. Philosophy Documentation Center is working to secure the necessary permission from each publisher.
