If our school has a site license, can I put articles from PsycARTICLES on electronic reserve for courses?
Yes, this is allowed. Section 3.7 of the APA license:
3.7 The Licensee may incorporate parts of the Licensed Materials in electronic course packs and electronic reserve collection for the use by Authorized Users in a particular course of instruction at the Licensee’s institution, but not for printed (hard copy) or CD-ROM versions of Course Packs, Commercial Use, or Re-sale. Each such item shall carry appropriate acknowledgment of the source, listing title and author of the extract, title and author of the work, and the publisher. Access to stated materials are to be controlled by security measures, such as IP authentication or the use of authorized passwords. Access shall be made available only to Authorized Users. The Licensee shall delete copies when they are no longer used for a particular course. Course packs in non-electronic non-print perceptible form, such as audio or Braille, may also be offered to Authorized Users who are visually impaired. Permission for other reproduction should be sought from the Publisher, via the APA Permissions Office. This clause pertains only to databases containing full text. It does not apply for PsycINFO.
