FIZ Karlsruhe has discontinued its document delivery service AutoDoc on December 30, 2022. Customers still have the option of a seamless transition to Reprints Desk, a professional full-text provider in the academic environment. Reprints Desk is a U.S. company wholly owned by Research Solutions, Inc.
FIZ Karlsruhe has reached an agreement with Reprints Desk in advance that allows AutoDoc customers to transfer their existing contracts and contract terms to Reprints Desk if they wish. They will not have to negotiate new contracts with Reprints Desk. All previous contract terms and conditions will remain in place. Once they have switched to Reprints Desk, AutoDoc customers will be able to use the Article Galaxy platform for their full-text orders. This platform offers identical ordering options and functionality as AutoDoc; 80% of full-texts are delivered within seconds. Overall, like AutoDoc, Reprints Desk with its platform Article Galaxy has a fulfillment rate of well over 90%. Customers can pay their invoices either in USD or in euros. Please find more information on the benefits of Article Galaxy here: PDF
The AutoDoc helpdesk is still available to advise existing AutoDoc customers on the transition to Reprints Desk and will be happy to answer any questions. If you are interested you simply can send us the signed Consent Declaration which we have sent to all customers and we will immediately start the transition process.
