Document delivery is a service for SISSA faculty, staff and students.

How to request an article/book chapter not available in SISSA

1. Check the SISSA Library collections first​ - it's likely we have it!

  • search the SISSA catalog to check our printed holdings ( for printed books and journals, DVD, CD-ROM, printed SISSA theses, and for purchased e-books);
  • search the SISSA Discovery Service (for full-text access to articles, e-books across hundreds of licensed journals subscribed by SISSA, reports, preprints, open access journals and  journal articles not online accessible). If you want to search ONLY  SISSA's digital collection with this tool, Limit the search to SISSA repositories (IRIS-SISSA Digital Library and SISSA Preprint Archive). It's usually FASTER to request these articles using the "SISSA Library DD" inside SISSA Discovery Service selecting  NOT in SISSA collection - ask for articles/books directly from the the list of articles NOT OWNED by SISSA and which you are looking for. It will give you an option to go directly to this service and the system (SISSA Discovery Service) will copy and paste the basic citation information automatically into the form (but please add any additional information you have about the item into the form).
  • search UNITYFVG : the United Universities of Friuli Venezia Giulia database (federated institutional research digital archives of the University of Trieste, University of Udine and SISSA)

2. If isn't available at SISSA, place a request using this online form.

If you are filling out this form manually, be as complete and careful as possible so there aren't unnecessary delays. Please submit only 1 request per form. All requests must be submitted using this online form in order to comply with Italian and European copyright  regulations and with SISSA's license agreements with publishers directly and through the Rector’s Conference (CRUI).
Please enter your request using the following form and the Library will manage it as soon as possible. The rapidity of the service depends on the providing library.
