About continuation of the full text download function.

April 10, 2017

In relation to the termination of NII-ELS(National Institute of Informatics Electronic Library Service), we will deeply apologize for causing trouble to all users.
Once again sorry that our less information made all users concerned although we announced this matter to the academic societies and the institutions.

The service including the download function has been resumed on April 10, 2017 except for contents which an adjustment with an academic society is necessary.

As a result of the conference with Japan Science and Technology Agency, as for the contents which transfer to J-STAGE in after fiscal year 2017 and was open-accessd by NII-ELS (181 journals ・ about 220,000 articles), CiNii provides the download function until the completion of migration work as transitional measure.

CiNii was planning to continue the download function as substitution measure, as for the contents which doesn't migrate due to an issue end or dismissal of a publisher (309 journals ・ about 880,000 articles).
However, these contents weren't offered temporarily because of a system renewal delay.
The download function for these contents was also resumed.

About the following contents, the offer of the download function has ended on March 28, 2017 based on contract of National Institute of Informatics with an academic society.

With considering the user's advantage convenience, under the conference with an academic society and Japan Science and Technology Agency, CiNii is doing the preparations of offering the download function for open-accessed contents as transitional measure from now on.

  • The content which has been offered as "paid" or "subscription" in NII-ELS which is planning to migrate to J-STAGE after fiscal year 2017
  • Due to the end of NII-ELS, contents to which an academic society has expressed releasing them in its own website or other service.
  • Contents of an academic society whose correspondence policy after NII-ELS is pending.

CiNii Articles links to the web page which can download contents of J-STAGE and an institutional repository (about 4,460,000 articles) except for contents migrating from NII-ELS. It's possible to access about 6,450,000 contents including the resumed contents this time.

We will announce the latest migration situation in sequence.
