Requesting Permission from LWW Books
Permission to use most LWW book content can now be obtained via RightsLink®, the Copyright Clearance Center’s online permissions service. Please search for the book that contains the material that you wish to use on www.lww.com, then click on the “Request Permissions” link. Follow the online instructions and select from the drop down options to get a quick price, create a RightsLink® account if you do not have one, complete and pay for your order, and download and print your license. For additional information, please view the RightsLink® Slideshow.
If the book from which you want to borrow content is not on our web site, please check our Copyright Reversions List to see if the title from which you want to use material is contained in that list. If the title is included in the Copyright Reversions List, you will need to contact directly the person or organization that currently holds the copyright to obtain permission; you can find the name of the current copyright holder next to the book title in the Copyright Reversions List. If the title is not included in the Copyright Reversions List, please send your request to email@example.com
with the details outlined in our Email Request Instructions
Before Requesting Permission, Please Note the Following:
· Figures must be original to the LWW text and not credited to any other source.
· Completely following the instructions for requesting permission will enable us to maximize our turnaround time. We cannot guarantee that incomplete requests will be processed in a timely manner. It may be necessary to return incomplete requests for additional information. We appreciate your efforts to get all necessary information to us regarding your request.
Request for Files to Create Alternate Format Text for Student(s)
We will provide files in .pdf format for a student with a disability. Requests for these files must come from the institution’s Assistive Services department or from someone else on the staff who is responsible for the task. Please note that files are sent to that person, who is then responsible for delivering the files to the student.
Please click on the link below to be taken to the form for such requests, complete all the required fields, and provide the 13-digit ISBN. We will contact you if additional information is required.
Due to extremely high demand for these files, we ask that you order as far in advance as possible.
