A new Pay Per Article service offered by NRC-CISTI, the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information, allows any researcher to search a database of more than 11 million articles and pay by credit card to view and print those selected without requiring registration.
The new service provides access to a selection of scientific, technical and medical articles held locally in NRC-CISTI's electronic and print journal collections. Articles that are not available through the Pay Per Article service remain accessible through CISTI's catalogue.
Once NRC-CISTI verifies payment, users receive confirmation of their purchases and an email with a link to the items purchased. Articles from NRC-CISTI's electronic collection are available for viewing immediately. Articles in the print collection must first be scanned, and users receive a link by e-mail when the article is ready to be viewed and printed.
