If you are submitting a manuscript to ISSME, then you need to clear permission for anything that you have not created. This is a legal requirement.
When you have cleared permission with the copyright holder, ensure that you include written or e-mailed confirmation (e.g. the permissions request form) when you submit your manuscript. Please note that the copyright holder may be someone other than the author/publisher. If copyright is not held by the author or publisher either party may be able to direct you otherwise.
If you are republishing anything within your ISSME article or chapter that you or your co-authors have not created then permission to reuse this content needs to be cleared. This is a legal requirement. If permission is not cleared then both ISSME and authors expose themselves to potential legal risks.
Please note that if permission has not been cleared then ISSME will not be able to reproduce that specific content.
Where you are unsure whether to clear permission or not, always seek to obtain permission from the copyright holder. Generally they will be pleased to grant permission and appreciate the courtesy of being asked.
The Manuscript Permissions Request Form (.PDF Format or MS Word format) is available to help you clear permissions (although permission by e-mail/letter/fax is also acceptable). The Manuscript Permissions checklist (.PDF format) is to help you ensure that you have included all relevant permissions documents before submission.
