Request-a-copy in 2021

25 January 2022

Request-a-copy enables users of the UG research portal to request publications that are not yet full text available (because of an embargo or restriction). The University Library (UB) acts as an intermediary and forwards the request to the author of the publication. He or she will decide whether or not to share the publication. Publications will not be shared without the consent of the author. Depending on the author's reply, the UB will handle the request by either sending the publication or sending a notification that the author has decided not to share.

Request-a-copy is an online service and because of that completely corona-proof. In 2021 a total of 1,174 request-a-copy requests were received, an average of 98 per month. In 76% of these cases the authors agreed to share the full text.

Most requested publications in 2021:

  1. No place like home: Residential mobility and housing preferences of older adults in the Netherlands – Petra de Jong
    45 requests, the author agreed to share in all cases
  2. De taal van het beeld: Lucebert tekenaar - dichter - Marleen Slooff
    42 requests
  3. Wild and willful: Shifting perspective and approach towards ADHD - Maruschka Sluiter
    41 requests
