Copyright for articles published in these journals is vested in Inderscience Publishers, to ensure both the widest dissemination and protection of material published in Inderscience's journals. Authors are asked to assign worldwide copyright in both print and other media for their articles, including abstracts, to Inderscience. This enables us to ensure copyright protection against infringement, and to disseminate your article and our journals as widely as possible.

 

As the author, you have the right to use the article within your research collaboration groups for the purposes of your teaching and research activities only. There is no need to ask for Inderscience's permission; the only condition is that acknowledgement is given to the journal in which it is published as the original source of publication.

Please note that:

  • You continue to enjoy patent and trademark rights to any process described in your article; these are unaffected by the transfer of copyright to Inderscience.
  • If the article has been researched and written by you as part of your employment - i.e. as a "work for hire" - your employer may use all or part of the information in the article for intra-company use.
  • You may, of course, present the paper at a seminar or conference and hand copies of the paper to delegates.
  • Uses that you require other than those specified here and via the page link below should be authorised by Inderscience.
