Written Permissions to Include Previously Published Materials in a THI Journal Article
Authors are responsible for obtaining written permissions upon manuscript submission or shortly thereafter if they plan to include any of the following:
- Previously published materials (contact copyright holder)
- Personal observations and personal communications other than those of the authors (include direct quotation with signature of the researcher, along with the month and year of observation or communication)
- Names of contributors other than the authors, as in an acknowledgment (which might imply endorsement of your data and conclusions)
- Photographs of human subjects
When documenting permissions for items 2 and 3 above, a separate Conditions for Publication form can be used: write the manuscript number and “For Acknowledgments Only” on the form and submit it to the Journal.
