• Which information can I access?

    I only have a subscription to a Journal which offers its subscribers the access to its content on Jurisquare:
    With the Journal subscription and the login that you obtained from us, you have access to the Jurisquare search engine and the full electronic content of your Journal. This not only includes the most recent issue, but also the complete digital archive.

    I have a subscription to the Jurisquare services:
    Een abonnement op Jurisquare geeft u toegang tot de zoekmotor en tot alle referenties (zowel van boeken als van tijdschriften) in de databank.

    A Jurisquare subscription enables you to access the search engine and all references included in the database (journals and books). In order to gain access to the content of the journals, a subscription to the journal concerned is necessary. The online access conditions are determined by the publisher. Access to online books can be purchased online and are available immediately after purchase. Book prices depend on the type of Jurisquare license purchased by the customer.

    You only need to have access to one specific article from a journal? Or maybe just one chapter from a book? No problem - many articles and chapters can be purchased separately, by means of online payment or using pre-purchased credits.
