Requirements for Inclusion of Order from Source Links

  1. Provide links with each substance that will take a SciFinder user directly to the catalog page where they can order your chemicals.
  2. The linking page needs to include current price, current availability, and the ability to directly place an order.
    • From your page, the SciFinder users should be able to determine how soon the chemical of interest will ship. For instance ships within 1 week or in stock for items that ship within 1 week.
  3. Requiring a login to complete the order is acceptable, but having to log in before seeing price and availability, is not acceptable.

Links that do not meet all requirements may be included as Product Information links.
