Commercial Publication of STN Search Results in a Bibliography


For example, you are a researcher who has been collecting abstracts on a promising anticancer drug from a number of STN® databases over the past several years. You now wish to publish a bibliography of those abstracts with a commercial publisher, but want to know if this can be done under the STN Information Keep & Share ProgramSM.

This project is not allowed under the STN Information Keep & Share Program for a number of reasons:

  • It is a derivative work.
  • The work is commercial – it would be for sale to others
  • The audience for the work includes people outside of your organization.

You would need to pursue licenses with each of the database producers whose records would be included in your work.
