Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to propose an alternative method for individuals to obtain documents using credits supplied by their institution to purchase at article level. Design/methodology/approach – The paper draws on the experience and knowledge gained from the extensive work that CIBER has done in analyzing the usage of large‐scale journal databases. Findings – It was found that such an approach has many advantages over the current librarian‐driven process. Originality/value – Digital content is variously neglected, abused, free, and expensive. This paper is as much about stimulating some new thinking in this important area as about setting out a new scholarly communication market model.
