Permissions (to use extracts, digitization etc.)
Accessible Format Requests
OUP is committed to making our publications available to as many of our readers as possible.
OUP is able to provide an electronic file, or grant permission for the creation of an alternate format for students with disabilities. This is limited to use of our titles by disability departments of educational institutions and representative organisations. These files are to be provided solely for the purposes of students with disabilities and are usually distributed in low-resolution, PDF format.
Copyright Clearance Center (CCC)
If your organization has an Annual Academic Copyright License or an Annual Copyright License (ACL) from the CCC, you may reuse content published by OUP within the limits of the particular licence. If your business or institution has not signed up for an annual licence, you may request individual permissions (such as for coursepacks, e-reserves or marketing uses) on a pay-per-use basis, or request an annual license by contacting the CCC directly.
Copyright Licensing Agency
OUP works with the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) in the UK, to grant photocopying and coursepack reuses for a variety of markets and purposes. For further information on the range of available licences and their terms and conditions, please visit www.cla.co.uk or contact them at email@example.com
If having contacted the CCC or the CLA you are unable to obtain the rights you require, please request permission from us directly by contacting the Permissions team via the link below:
