Authors need to obtain written permission to use any artwork that is copyrighted, has been obtained from an archival source, or has been scanned or photographed from an existing copyrighted publication. Parties granting permission will normally indicate the exact wording of the required credit line, and this should be included with the artwork’s caption. If you are an author with questions about the rights to images in your forthcoming journal article, please consult this page for journal authors.
