Copyright and licensing guidance concerning the use of Harvard Business Review (HBR) at BCIT

For further details please visit BCIT Library’s Copyright and Fair Dealing guidelines site. Feel free to email our copyright office.

At BCIT Library you can access Harvard Business Review (HBR) in two ways:

  1. Print copies, dating from 1998 through to the most current issue, are located at Burnaby Campus Library 3rd floor stacks HF 5001 H3.
  2. As an electronic resource, issues dating from 1922 until the most current issue in the Business Source Complete database.

Print copies of HBR

  • Use of the HBR content in the paper copies of the periodical is covered by the provisions of the Canadian Copyright Act. Under the Fair Dealing section, use of a copyright protected work is permitted, without permission, for research, private study, education, parody, satire, criticism, review, and news reporting.
  • Under Fair Dealing, copying a single article of a journal per issue or up to 10% of an issue is accepted practice. The limit of 10% should be interpreted in favour of the user -- if 10% works out to more than one article, then that would be the limit that applies.
  • If you would like to include two or more articles from a single issue in one course then you need to obtain copyright clearance from HBR. Please contact:
  • Material posted to the Learning Hub under the Fair Dealing Policy can remain in the course shell after the course is completed. For material for which copyright permission was required, you must abide by the terms under which the permission was granted.

Electronic copies of HBR in Business Source Complete

  • The online access to HBR in Business Source Complete is governed by the license the BCIT Library signed with EBSCO, the provider of Business Source Complete, and by any further publisher stipulations specific to HBR. These licenses and stipulations trump the Copyright Act.
  • The HBR stipulation in Business Source Complete is very clear and states that: Harvard Business Review and Harvard Publishing Newsletter content on EBSCOhost is licensed for private individual use of authorized EBSCOhost users. It is not intended for use as assigned course material in academic institutions.  Therefore, you cannot direct students to Business Source Complete to find required/recommended class readings in HBR. For example, you cannot have a citation to an HBR article in the Learning Hub as a course reading and then follow it with the phrase “go to Business Source Complete and search for this article”.
  • The HBR stipulation goes on to state:  Academic licensees may not use this content in electronic reserves, electronic course packs, persistent linking from syllabi or by any other means of incorporating the content into course resources. This clearly forbids the following with respect to HBR in Business Source Complete:
    • linking to HBR articles in Business Source Complete;
    • using articles from HBR in Business Source Complete for course packs;
    • posting in the Learning Hub, or in any other online forum, copies of HBR articles from Business Source Complete.
