   How to submit an article request

You submit an article request by clicking on Article under the New Requests tab in the red toolbar at the top of the page.

Please be as detailed as possible in your request and then click the Submit Request button at the bottom of the form.

Most articles and book chapters will be posted as PDF files to your ILLiad account. An article may take 1-3 days to arrive. You will receive an email alert that the article is available for you to download.

To access them, login to ILLiad and click the Electronically Received Articles link to view or download the article. Please note that the PDF file is only accessible for 30 days; if you want to keep it, you must save it to your own computer or flash drive (see  where's my journal article?).
