Please note that while permission is sufficient for brief quotations, it is not sufficient for images. Please also keep in mind that the copyright is generally held by the publisher of the image rather than the author of the image.
After you obtain permission, you are then responsible to indicate in the caption of the image the original source of the image and that it is being used in your chapter with permission. Your caption should appear as:
Figure 1. [insert caption here]. (© [insert copyright year here], [insert copyright holder’s name here]. Used with permission.).
Please note that, should you create an image that is loosely based on another copyrighted image, you must indicate in the image caption that your image is adapted from another copyrighted image and then provide the original source:
Figure 1. [insert caption here]. (Adapted from [insert source of copyrighted image here]).
As some publishers require that you obtain permission for use of even an image that you may have adapted from one of their images, it is your responsibility to investigate as to whether or not permission is needed for your adapted image.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since acquiring permission may take a significant amount of time, it is very important that you begin the process as soon as possible. Should you not obtain permission by the time the manuscript is ready to be sent to production, you will have the option of removing, replacing, or redrawing the image in question.
Additionally, it is extremely important that all symbols and letters are consistent in their formatting (i.e., if you italicize “x” in equation number one, please be sure to italicize “x” throughout the rest of your chapter if it is used to represent the same item). Please note that the unnecessary use of metafiles and the inconsistent formatting of symbols and letters will have an adverse effect on the quality of your chapter, as well as slow down the production of the entire book.
NOTE: We recommended that you use Mathtype (http://www.dessci.com/en/products/mathtype/) to create complex equations. Do not use the Equation Editor that accompanies Word 2007 because there is a problem in the program that corrupts equations when outputting the final typeset version of the article to postscript for printing. If you are using Word 2007 for your submission and do not have Mathtype, please use the Equation Editor for Word 2003 when creating equations. Microsoft has been alerted to the problem and it will be fixed in future versions of Word. Instructions for accessing the 2003 editor are available on the Microsoft website.
Please see the document below for instructions regarding the content and styling of your chapter. Thank you.
