Guidelines for Sharing Articles for Journal Clubs

                                                         Best Practices for Sharing Articles with your Journal Club Group


1.  It’s ideal to share links to articles instead of sharing a PDF or print copy.
Persistent links, also known as durable, stable, direct, or permalinks, are permanent links to individual articles, eBooks, or journals that can be shared via email or per fair use options noted above.  
2. 
If your journal club has people outside the QHS community, consider using open access articles for your journal club because open access articles are freely available to anyone. Find open access articles in PubMed Central  which is a free digital repository of high quality, open access publications. Also, when searching PubMed in the left sidebar of the results page, there is a link to free full text. 
3.  If the article is coming from a print journal, you can provide photocopies of the article to the QHS journal club members.
4.  Scanning a print article and emailing the PDF it is not allowed under Fair Use copyright law. 

5.  Sharing articles that were obtained through interlibrary loan is not permitted under Fair Use copyright law.

The librarians at Queen’s are here to help you acquire and share the articles
needed for your successful journal clubs. If you have questions about creating
persistent links, or finding open access articles, please contact
library@queens.org
