[2023-09-06 Add]
If the publisher of the journal to which you are submitting changes from Wiley to another company (transfer), articles that have not yet been published (published in Early View) at the time of transfer are not eligible for the transformative agreements with Wiley (i.e., are not eligible for discounted APCs). Please note that in such cases, authors are required to pay the full amount of the APC to the transferring publisher (if you publish as a non-OA in a hybrid journal, you do not need to pay the APC). Please refer to the following file for details.

[Library Network] [Important] KULINE (KU Libraries Catalog) will be renewed in August 21, 2023

 On 2023-08-22 (11089 reads)

In August 21, 2023, we plan to renew KULINE, the Kyoto University library search system, in conjunction with the complete system update of the library system.

KULINE will stop updating data from August 11, so the lending status and other information will no longer be up to date, but you can still search the library.
It will be temporarily unavailable around 9:00 on August 21 due to switching to the new system.

Renewal Information

For specific details, please refer to the following announcements for each change:

Future Plans

We will strive to make our search system more user-friendly than ever, for example by supporting responsive design.
The screen structure is expected to be easier to read on a smartphone.
We hope you will continue to use KULINE.

[Library Network] Conditions of Use and Licensing Restrictions for E-Resources

 On 2023-08-04 (1572 reads)

Use of electronic resources including databases, e-journals and e-books subscribed by Kyoto University is subject to copyright laws and licence agreements.
The licences generally prohibit the following uses:

  • Systematic and programmatic download
  • Usage beyond the private purpose
  • Reproducing and distributing

Violation of the licence agreements may result in the suspension of access to e-resources for the whole University.

There have been frequent recent occurrences of users unintentionally downloading or accessing large volumes of data using pre-read browser functions. Pre-read browser functions continually access links within pages in the background while pages are being viewed. As a result of this, large volume data downloads or large volume access of which the user is unaware may occur, even if the user intends to use electronic journals in the standard way. We request your cooperation in disabling these functions by making the below changes to your browser settings.
