This Overview is designed to provide a general summary of the Agreement. Before committing to buy a Licence, potential subscribers must always read the licence terms, paying particular attention to any special licence conditions.
Site licence with Eduserv Standard Chest Licence Terms and Conditions. In addition to the Core Licence there are additional, optional extensions available;
Option for Extended Educational Use – this extension is required if the licensee wants to extend secure access to students and the staff instructing them who are not members of the licensed institution. For example, users in partner colleges in UK or overseas or students on franchised or validated courses.
Emerald has agreed to allow students who are registered at the licensed institution but who are also registered at another UK or Irish institution to access under the core licence without the need to purchase an extended educational option, whether or not the other UK or Irish Institution also holds a licence from Emerald.
Emerald requires that the licensed institution must purchase an Extended Educational Use Licence for those students who are registered to another institution, but receive qualification accredited or validated by the licensed institution. This applies to both UK/Irish and overseas students.
Licence Extension for Commercial Projects – this can be purchased in addition to the Option for Extended Educational Use and means that a licensee can use the resource in projects that are deemed ‘commercial’, for example; where they receive payment from third parties, for non-academic research, consultancy services or where they have the majority or controlling interest in a trading company, partnership, joint venture or other collaborations.
Emerald has agreed that use of their resources by research students funded by commercial organisations does not constitute commercial use. These researchers are welcome to use the results of their research in their workplace, but having left the university must no longer be allowed access to Emerald resources under the university’s licence unless the university purchases an alumni extension.
Optional Extension for Alumni - this extension can be purchased separately and allows the licensee to extend secure access to Alumni for “Educational Purposes”.
