Licensing Agreement - Terms of Use

Authorized users are permitted online access to those issues for which the subscribing institution or individual holds or held valid subscriptions with PNG Publications, the publisher. These authorized users may download, save, or print text, or other information solely for private use or research.

Authorized users are employees, faculty, staff and students who are officially affiliated with the subscribing institution, individual users who have the appropriate subscriptions to the American Journal of Health Behavior, and users who have paid access through the pay per view facility. Public access may also be provided from designated terminals within the subscribing institutions IP range. Authorized users may include persons affiliated with remote sites or campuses of the subscribing institution that are administered from the subscribing institution's site or campus, but not persons affiliated with remote sites or campuses that have a separate administrative staff.

Regarding distance education, students would need to use their university identification numbers in order to go through the university's proxy server. Should students not enroll or graduate, they should be removed from having access. At no time should alumni be allowed to access via a proxy server.

The subscribing institution is responsible for notifying and updating its IP address and proxy server details within that IP address in order that its authorized users may have access to the American Journal of Health Behavior and will use its best endeavors to prevent unauthorized use, including making all reasonable efforts to inform authorized users of these guidelines.

Authorized users may not alter, recompile, copy, resell, redistribute, publish or re-publish, place at a Web site, systematically download, operate a bureau service or print for fee service for distribution to unauthorized users the journal content or any part thereof without explicit permission of PNG Publications, the copyright holder.

Unless otherwise specified, PNG Publications holds all rights, including copyright of the American Journal of Health Behavior, and maintains these rights under all circumstances. PNG Publications reserves the right to withdraw any of the American Journal of Health Behavior or any part of the journal in order to comply with any legal rule or court order, or if PNG Publications is at risk of liability from the continued availability of the journal or part of it. Atypon will use all reasonable endeavors to ensure that the journals are available to the subscribing institution at all times, and to restore access as soon as possible in the event of an interruption. If and when a subscription lapses, perpetual access will be allowed for the issues that have been purchased by the institution. Upon the lapse, the access will be determined by PNG Publications who will notify Atypon.

Note. Online access is included in the subscription price of the journal; therefore, the subscription price for print only, electronic only or both is identical. Subscribers outside the United States will be charged additional postal fees for print delivery.

PNG Publications reserves the right to make changes to the licensing agreement should it need to do so. Subscribers will be notified 30 days prior to the change.
