Yes, but all requests are subject to the provisions of the Copyright Act 1968. It is also a legal requirement that all copies include a Copyright Notice as their first page.

In the case of fair dealing for the purposes of "research or study", the Copyright Act specifically provides that it is "fair dealing" to copy:

  • one article contained in a single journal issue;
  • two or more articles contained in a single journal issue, if the articles relate to the same area of research or to the same course of study;
  • from a book of at least 10 pages
  • 10% of the total number of pages; or
  • where the work is divided into chapters, the whole or part of a single chapter, even if that one chapter exceeds 10% of the pages
  • 10% of the number of words in a work which is in an electronic format.
