What’s right in copyright and permissions? A question faced by authors and editorial teams alike. This presentation looks at the basics from a publisher’s perspective, covering topics such as: What is copyright? Who holds copyright? How you can apply for permissions to reuse content? while addressing the most common question: ‘Do I need permission?’. It discusses some examples of when permission is necessary and when permission is not required, with the aim of providing the initial information applicants will need for a permissions query or request. This will aid authors, medical writers and med comms teams to obtain the appropriate licenses for previously published or adapted content when preparing a manuscript for submission and publication.
