Permissions Request Guidelines to
use Material from Contact In Context

For permission to use Contact In Context material, requests must be submitted via email to Prof. Robert Lodder.

[Exception: authors are granted certain rights back to them on the Contact In Context Copyright Status Form. For example, authors may use their own tables and figures in other scholarly research papers that they write, without writing to Contact In Context for permission. Permission is not needed if figures/tables from one Contact In Context journal will be reused in a forthcoming Contact In Context journal article. Full credit to the original source should be given, for example: "Reproduced with permission from Prof. Robert Lodder. 2002, 44, 24-87. Copyright 2002 Contact In Context"]

When submitting a request, you must include your name, employer, your or your employer's address, phone, fax number, and the information listed below; we will reply via email.

A fee may be assessed. We do not grant verbal requests. Generally, we do not grant blanket permission; however, a royalty agreement may be negotiated in certain cases.

Requesters should provide the following information:

  1. Title of Contact In Context journal.

  2. Full bibliographic reference information.

  3. What you intend to use, e.g. complete article, figures 2, 5, 6 only, part of the article (send a marked copy of the text you plan to use), etc.

  4. Where it will be reused:

    1. If making individual photocopies, list where will they be distributed, such as at a conference, to customers, in-house to employees only, etc.

    2. If the work will be republished, let us know if the Contact In Context material will be published in a book, journal, or magazine, give us the title of the work, the name of the publisher of the work in which the Contact In Context material will appear, the editor's name of the book, the title and list of chapter authors' names, etc.

  5. The deadline by which you need this permission; we will try to meet your deadline, but keep in mind that our normal turnaround times are 5-6 working days.

  6. For classroom use requests, please send us your name, address, phone number, fax number, the professor's name and class name/no., the university name, the number of students in the class. If permission is granted, the appropriate copyright credit line must be posted along with the Contact In Context material; use of the material should not imply any endorsement by Contact In Context.

The more information you supply to us, the faster we can grant your request. It is helpful if you would supply photocopies of any artwork, photographs, or other materials along with your request. Also, please include your telephone number and your fax number in your letter.

Credit Lines

Should permission be granted to you, we will require that you print the Contact In Context copyright credit line on the first page of the article or book chapter. For figures and tables, the credit may appear with the figure, in a footnote, or in the reference list. For figures, tables, and journal articles, the standard credit line is, "Reprinted with permission from [reference citation]. Copyright [year] Contact In Context."
