Terms & conditions
The IMF offers its users the ability to obtain certain articles from various publishers. Particular articles are displayed in the manner in which they appear in the journals in which they are originally published and are made available through iFactory's service in conjunction with the entirety of the journals in which they were published. Such articles are made available to iFactory's users under arrangements between IMF and the publishers of such journals, and also, in some instances, under arrangements between the users and such publishers.
To the extent that iFactory offers users the ability to order articles that are not contained within the IMF's system, iFactory's system offers users the ability to search databases containing the table of contents of those journals, and the table of contents of the entire journal will be available to the user, if the user desires. Where articles not contained within iFactory's system are ordered, those articles are reproduced from the original journal in which they appear under arrangements with the publishers of such journals.
The articles made available through iFactory's service are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws. To the best of iFactory's knowledge, the publishers that use iFactory's service to make documents available have secured all necessary rights to make these documents available to be copies by the users. Use of these documents by iFactory's users may be restricted by the user's agreement with the publisher. In addition, any user's unauthorized copying, distribution, public display, public performance, and preparation of derivative works from such documents is prohibited by copyright law.
By using this service, the user represents and warrants that he or she will not use the service in any manner that would violate any third party's copyright, intellectual property, or other rights. Any violations or potential violations should promptly be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Fair use” of IMF published content is considered the excerption or quoting of IMF content by individuals (e.g., academics, journalists, students, IMF country authorities, etc.) for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research, in which the individual’s use is for non-commercial purposes. Such “fair use” is freely authorized for up to 2,500 words from any one source. The IMF requests in such cases that individuals provide a complete citation to clearly identify the source(s) of the excerpted/quoted IMF material to their readers.
