Along with your manuscript submission, Plural requires that authors submit approved permission requests for all copyrighted material that they wish to reprint in their publication. We suggest that authors complete all permission requests at least eight weeks prior to completing their manuscript, since many requests can take this long to be processed.

To help keep you organized in your permissions quest, please use a copy of our Illustrations and permissions log. You can download the Excel spreadsheet here.

If you have questions about how to submit a particular request, whom to contact, or need help with any aspect of your permission requests, please contact our editorial department at 858-492-1555.
