How do I obtain a copy of the full text of the article I have found in Inspec?

Full text links

Many journals and conference articles are now available in electronic format. To access these documents, Inspec includes DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) which are full-text links that lead you directly to the relevant article on the publisher's website. If you already subscribe to the journal, you will gain immediate access to the article, otherwise you may purchase the article for a small fee. Over 70% of current journal articles indexed by Inspec have full text links. Inspec now contains over 2 million links across the whole database and will add more links when they become available both to the current and back years.

If an article does not have a weblink, how do I obtain a copy?

Ordering articles

Contact your library who will order a photocopy via a document delivery service.

If your organisation does not have a library service, then the IET Library and Information Service can help you.  Inspec Direct subscribers may order article photocopies or PDFs for a special discounted price using the Inspec Direct Document Delivery Service. This allows you to prepay for 10 copies of articles that may be requested individually throughout the year as you need them, via the Library’s online order form.

For subscribers in the UK and Rest of World the price is £150

For subscribers in the Americas the price is $300
