Rights and Permissions

 

Our authors seek a maximum global audience for the published results of their academic work. We therefore encourage, under certain conditions, the re-use of these texts in other publications, translated into other languages, and, occasionally, as reprinted editions as well. However, permission to re-publish these texts must be obtained beforehand from Brill.

To learn more about our partner RightsLink, and their work with Brill, please watch this slide presentation (zip file) as a slideshow.

This would make it available online for everyone to access and download, as well as make possible unlimited sharing of the final published PDF.

We trust that through this policy we allow maximum freedom of use of our publications without endangering their viability. For further information on permitted uses and permissions contact rights@brill.com. For our open access options, please visit our Open Access at Brill page.
