Full Text Documents from REHABDATA
NARIC now offers downloadable full text for select documents!
NARIC is pleased to announce full text access to the Original Research portion of our collection. These documents, the result of government funded research, are available electronically through the REHABDATA database. There are currently more than 1,300 electronic documents available through this service. As new documents are added, they will also be made available.
Over time, NARIC will scan and release older documents in the Original Research collection. These documents, going back more than 40 years, are currently only available in paper form. Some of these documents, including theses and annual reports, are the only copies in existence.
Frequently Asked Questions about Electronic Documents
Why are journal articles and reference volumes not available electronically?
Copyright laws restrict us from distributing journal articles and privately published works electronically. Also, some Original Research documents, while federally funded, were produced by private publishers, such as conference proceedings. Where possible, we include links to online versions of these documents. We also provide information on the publisher.
How much does an electronic document cost?
Nothing. NARIC provides electronic copies of the documents in our collection free of charge.
What do I need to view these documents?
You will need a PDF document reader such as Adobe Reader. Download Adobe Reader.
How can I search REHABDATA for electronic documents?
The REHABDATA advanced search page allows you to limit your search to only those documents with electronic versions available.
How can I get documents that are not available electronically?
Many of our documents are available through our document delivery service. Fair Use laws allow us to photocopy articles for research purposes. The charge for our document delivery service is 5¢ per page, with a $5 minimum on all orders. Simply note the accession number and contact an information specialist. If you are affiliated with a medical, university, or large public library, you may be able to access articles and reference volumes through their collection.
