In a few exceptional cases, such as authors wishing to re-use their own text in their own forthcoming monograph, no written permission is required. Please read about those exceptions under Permission to Re-Use for Brill Authors and Editors.

Occasionally Brill does not hold copyright to published works, for instance with collections of previously published articles or with illustrations. Please consult the copyright pages in the Brill publications and/or the relevant credit lines provided first, and then contact the appropriate copyright holder for permission to re-publish.

It is strongly advised to start early with permission applications. As we receive a high volume of emails, we might not be able to respond in detail instantly.
