Permissions

Permissions for reproducing or adapting material within your article.

As the author, you are the one who is responsible for asking and attaining permissions to use materials owned by others with copy right. The process of seeking permission from many different authors can be time-consuming, so it is an idealmove to request permission as soon and as fast as possible. We will require emails containing copies of letters, forms, and other kinds of proof that you have been granted the permission for the use of copyrighted materials. This is important as this will make it easier for us to see your completion of requirements with regards to the wording and the placement of credits.

All Permissionsare granted free of charge by signatory organizations, to:

Use up to three figures (including tables) from a journal article or book chapter, but: not more than five figures from a whole book or journal issue/edition;
not more than six figures from an annual journal volume; and
not more than three figures from works published by a single publisher for an article, and not more than three figures from works published by a single publisher for a book chapter (and in total not more than thirty figures from a single publisher for re-publication in a book, including a multi-volume book with different authors per chapter). Use single text extracts of less than 400 words from a journal article or book chapter, but not more than a total of 800 words from a whole book or journal issue/edition.

Permission to go beyond such limits may be sought although in such instances the permission grant may require permission fees. Important – although permission may be granted without charge, authors must ensure that appropriate permission has nevertheless been obtained.
