Please read this license agreement carefully before subscribing to/using Bulletin of Marine Science (BMS) electronic journal access. By accessing BMS electronic journals, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms of this license.


1. Scope of License

Individual/Institutional Subscriber Use Restrictions: The subscription includes authorization by means of a unique username and password that may only be used by the individual subscriber.

The subscription entitles an individual or institutional subscriber access to the Bulletin of Marine Science electronic journals to:

a. make searches.

b. make one or more copies in printed form of the output of any search; such copies may not be sold or distributed to anyone who is not an authorized user.

c. download search results to hard disk, diskette or any other media, provided that such data are not made available to anyone who is not an authorized user.

Any copies of articles must maintain all copyright and other notices on the printed and electronic articles.

The downloading of an entire journal issue, regular or special issue, or complete journal volume in a systematic fashion is strictly prohibited.

PDF files for use by authors for distribution purposes must be purchased separately.

An individual or institutional subscriber may not make BMS electronic journals available to anyone else by any means, whether telephone link, internet connection, permitting access through his or her terminal or computer, or by other means or arrangements.

The subscriber is solely responsible for all security and use, including unauthorized use, of the subscriber’s username and password.

Institutional Subscriber Use Restrictions: The subscription includes authorization by means of the subscriber’s IP address or range of IP addresses to allow access to authorized users via multiple connections. If a proxy server is being registered for access, the subscriber agrees to maintain the security of the access by authenticating authorized users before allowing use of the proxy to any remote or on-site user.

Authorized users must be employees, faculty, staff or students officially affiliated with the subscriber, or authorized on-site patrons of the subscriber’s library facilities. For academic institutions, different campuses are treated as different subscribers even if they are within the same city. Departments or libraries of the same campus are treated as part of the same subscriber. For nonacademic institutions, subscribers are defined as geographically separate units, even if they are within the same city. Each branch, office or laboratory is considered a different subscriber.

The subscription entitles an authorized user access to the BMS electronic journals to:

a. make searches.

b. make one or more copies in printed form of the output of any search; such copies may not be sold or distributed to anyone who is not an authorized user.

c. download search results to hard disk or diskette, or any other media, provided that such data are not made available to anyone who is not an authorized user.

Any copies of articles must maintain all copyright and other notices on the printed and electronic articles.

The downloading of an entire journal issue, regular or special issue, or complete journal volume in a systematic fashion is strictly prohibited.

PDF files for use by authors for distribution purposes must be purchased separately.

Interlibrary loans are restricted to academic libraries for educational purposes and must be made in compliance with Section 108 of the Copyright Act of the U.S. and within the CONTU guidelines. Electronic transmission of journal articles must not be done so in such quantities that may substitute for a subscription.

2. Term and Fees
Subscriptions last through the end of the calendar year in which they become effective. This agreement will remain in effect thereafter for successive calendar years so long as the annual subscription fees are paid. Either party may terminate this agreement with 30 days written notice to the other party. The annual fee for the subscription may be raised with written notice to the subscriber, prior to the renewal date. A subscription includes online access to the current year’s issues and all available online back issues.
