How long will it take?
This can vary, but using standard delivery services it can take 1-2 days for articles. More difficult requests such as recently published, old, obscure or foreign material might take longer.

Due to copyright issues you will receive a printed copy of the requested article. This will be placed into your pigeon hole, when it arrives.

Electronic journals
During their stay at Max Planck Institute for Mathematics the guests have access to the full text of electronic journals marked with a yellow or yellow/red dot. Access to the electronic journals is provided automatically without a password, provided that you are within the MPIM IP range. The remote access outside MPIM is possible through the VPN-client. To get the client installed into your laptop, contact the IT department.

Different licences
There are different types of licences ranging from parallel editions of individual print journals, to Max Planck Society wide licences and German national licences. There might be several licences for the same journal covering a different time period. Check all the links, in order to access the issue that you are interested in.
