Obtaining Permissions for Reuse

If any figures or other material (including text or tables) in your manuscript have been previously published, it is important that you request permission from the copyright holder, usually the publisher, and add the required permission line to the caption exactly as specified by the copyright owner. Use of images or other material under an open license, including "free" images found on the Internet, often still requires attribution. You should check the source for applicable terms for reuse. Note that images of people or images owned or trademarked by other entities (including well-known logos or cartoon characters, for example) will also require official written permission. Copies of all permission grants should be forwarded to the journal.
