How to calculate the total number of pages
You may copy 20 percent max. 50 pages per student per half year. The number of pages depends on the total number of pages in the material in question.

Total number of pages in material
You may make copies of various types of material from different media. It may sometimes be difficult to determine the total number of pages. Below we have enclosed a couple of examples of how to find the total number of pages.
A book: The total number of pages in the book. This is the number of pages you use to calculate the 20 percent max. 50 pages.
A journal: 20 percent max. 50 pages of the total volume for the year in question, i.e. your calculation is based on all issues of the journal published in the calendar year in question, not only on the individual issue of the journal.
A website: If the file is a separate file, e.g. a PDF file uploaded to a website, the 20 percent max. 50 pages is based on the total number of pages in the file.
If the pages are ordinary contents pages on a website, it may be difficult todetermine the number of pages on which to base the 20 percent max. 50 pages. The general rule is that you may use what corresponds to 50 printedpages.
An anthology: An anthology, i.e. a collection of works, e.g. a collection of poems, a song book or a collection of scientific articles, is considered to be one work. This means that you may copy 20 percent max. 50 pages based on the total number of pages in the anthology. In this connection the poem is not considered to be an individual work. Therefore, the number of pages to be used in the calculation is the number of pages in the anthology as a whole.
Pictures: Pictures used in connection with text in the material may be copied. In this connection, pictures are regarded as ordinary pages of text.
However, you may not “cut away” the text so that the pictures are isolated in the copies. In other words, pictures must be copied in the connection in which they appear.
