Understanding copyright transfer
When your article is accepted for publication into one of the journals we publish, the Press asks you to sign an author agreement, which transfers your copyright to the Regents of the University of California or one of its publishing partners*.

The reason we ask you to transfer the copyright is simple:

As the administrator of your article's copyright, the Press ensures through managing the licensing and permissions process, that your scholarship will receive the widest possible distribution among educational audiences, and consequently, the greatest success of engaging in active scholarly discourse.

By comparison, if you were to retain your copyright, your article would be distributed only to those individuals and institutions subscribing to the journal. You would also be responsible for fielding and handling all subsequent inquiries for reproduction, which could potentially include numerous classroom photocopying requests by universities throughout the world, republication requests from publishers, abstracting and indexing requests, and subsidiary rights/content licensing agreement requests from content aggregators and archives.

The transfer of copyright to the Press is largely designed to allow you to focus on your research rather than on the clerical details associated with copyright ownership. The downside to this, as we understand, is not having complete control over the dissemination of your article. However, please be assured that the Press takes administration of your copyright and management of the associated rights very seriously. As a non-profit, scholarly publisher, University of California Press places the mission of the scholar and the Academy above all; we never will reproduce your article for any other purpose than to educate.

For a detailed map indicating where your article is distributed once published, please see our
Journal Subsidiary Rights and Permissions Overview (PDF).

* Agricultural History Society, American Anthropological Association, American Sociological Association, Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture, Institute of Palestine Studies, National Council on Public History, National Sexuality Resource Center-San Francisco State University, Oral History Association, Pacific Coast Branch of the American Historical Association, Pacific Sociological Association, Society for Music Theory, Society for the Study of Social Problems, Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction, The American Musicological Society, The Cardozo School of Law - Yeshiva University, The Henry Huntington Library and Art Gallery, The International Society for the History of Rhetoric, Vera Institute of Justice

Using images, photos, music and other outside content to enhance your article
Before your article goes to press, you must clear the necessary reproduction rights for any images, photos, figures, music, or content credited to a third party that you wish to use (including content found on the Internet), which fall outside of the fair use provisions described in U.S. copyright law. Because University of California Press distributes and licenses your article widely in both print and electronic formats to libraries, journal subscribers, secondary publishers, and other educational organizations, we request that our authors seek nonexclusive, worldwide rights in all formats and media, for one-time use from the rights holder of the image, photo, musical score, etc. that you wish to reprint. For detailed information, please see our Journal Copyright Guidelines for Authors:

Download the Press's Journal Copyright Guidelines for Authors (PDF). Once you have secured formal permission, please provide your journal's editor with all correspondence and supporting documentation for his/her records.

If you have questions regarding how to obtain permission for such third-party content, please find a brief list of reference websites and resources that will help you not only to license content easily and efficiently, but also to navigate the complex world of fair use, public domain, and copyright law:

Promoting your scholarship
Caliber
http://caliber.ucpress.net

Scholarly communication has changed dramatically over the past several years and electronic access to scholarship is now a necessity for scholars, researchers, and students in any field. In order to meet the needs of our authors in this changing environment, University of California Press has created a new online journals hosting platform-Caliber. Most journals published by the Press are now available on Caliber.

Caliber is a fully integrated information resource designed to meet the needs of students and scholars as they conduct research and access scholarly information in an online environment. Caliber adds functionality to your work, giving readers powerful search capabilities, integrated cross-referencing that automatically updates, and the ability to save articles for offline viewing. As an author, you can let people know how to access your article by providing them with its unique Caliber address (URL). If they aren't subscribers or accessing the service from a subscribing institution, they can read your article's abstract for free, purchase the article, or subscribe to the print edition of the journal.

AnthroSource?BR>
http://www.anthrosource.net

In January 2005, the American Anthropological Association (AAA), in partnership with University of California Press, launched the first phase of AnthroSource, a groundbreaking electronic initiative in anthropological scholarship. If you have published or are publishing content within an AAA journal that will reside within AnthroSource, you will have a wealth of promotional opportunities at your fingertips, including Google indexing, robust full-text searches through your article, auto-updating citation linking through CrossRef, email alerts, "favorites" pages, and the ability to download and save articles for personal use.

Additionally, you will be able to link from any Internet site that you wish to your article on AnthroSource, thereby increasing your scholarship's visibility. If visitors click on the link to your article on AnthroSource and are either members of the AAA or coming from a subscribing institution, they will be able to access its full text exactly as it appears in the print version of the journal. If, however, they are not subscribers, or coming from institutions that do not subscribe to the portal, then they instead will be able to read your abstract for free, or purchase and download the article via pay-per-view.

Handling permissions requests
UC Press Rights and Permissions Home
http://www.ucpressjournals.com/reprintInfo.asp

Once your work is published, you may receive occasional requests from editors and authors wishing to reprint your article in books, journals, newspapers, and other publications, as well as on CD-ROM, secured educational websites, and in email.

If you receive such requests and approve of them, please direct the requestors to
Caliber or AnthroSource, where they may request permission electronically through Rightslink? an automated reprints and permissions service of the Copyright Clearance Center (http://www.copyright.com). [We advise against sending permissions requests to your editorial office for review.]

The Rightslink diamond designates those articles available for permission:

Reprints & Permissions

If your article is not available online through University of California Press, please have the editor or publisher of the new work contact the Press's Subsidiary Rights Manager at
journalspermissions@ucpress.edu.

Keep in mind that your author agreement with the Press gives you license to negotiate permission (and fee, should you choose) with the reprinting publisher. The fee collected through Rightslink is the Press's "publisher fee", which helps to reduce costs associated with your journal's production and editorial overhead, which in turn, allows its editors to solicit future scholarship. [The publisher fee collected on behalf of the American Anthropological Association and the Society for the Study of Social Problems is shared with authors.]

And finally, if you are the author or editor of the publication in which you would like to reprint your article, you may do so freely without formal permission from the Press. We ask only that you reference fully the original article in conjunction with its use (i.e. in a copyright line or footnote). For example:

Article originally published as Lesieur, Henry R. and Joseph F. Sheley, "Illegal Appended Enterprises: Selling the Lines," Social Problems, Vol. 34, No. 3 (June 1987): 249-260. ?1987 by The Society for the Study of Social Problems.
NOTICE: If you have obtained special concessions to retain your copyright, there's no need to inform the Press of the permissions requests that you receive.

Requesting reprints

UC Press Rights and Permissions Home http://www.ucpressjournals.com./reprintInfo.asp

Requesting reprints (offprints, or printer-generated paper copies of your article) is now easier than ever. UC Press's partnership with Rightslink? an automated reprints and permissions service of the Copyright Clearance Center (
http://www.copyright.com), allows you to order reprints of your article directly through Caliber and AnthroSource.

If you would like reprints, click on the Rightslink diamond next to your article in the Table of Contents, or by its abstract:

Reprints & Permissions

The icon will open the Rightslink order entry page, in which you will be prompted to create an account, fill out the online form, and place your order. With Rightslink you can pay by credit card and monitor your account online at any time or any location.

Some of our journals guarantee authors a number of free reprints upon publishing. If your journal gives you "freebies," please contact your journal's editor for the appropriate order form. For any reprints above and beyond freebies, you can order directly through Rightslink on Caliber and AnthroSource.

Posting articles to freely available websites and institutional repositories
In response to the evolving nature of scholarly exchange and collaboration, University of California Press now allows its authors to post preprints and postprints on authors' personal websites, on discipline-specific servers of preprints and/or postprints, and within institutional repositories.

Posting Requirements:

To deter misuse of your article and to ensure citation consistency when posting preprints and postprints, we kindly ask that you adhere to the following requirements:

Preprints: If you deposit an unedited "working paper" or preprint to a website, you must clearly state on the site that your article has been accepted for publication in [your journal's name] and note where (in Caliber or AnthroSource) and when it will be published.

Postprints: Once your article is published, you must remove the preprint from the site and replace it with a postprint. You may use the Publisher-generated PDF, and you must display the following Publisher's Statement in tandem with posting:

"Published as [provide complete bibliographic citation, as appears in the print version of your journal]. ?[Year] by [the Regents of the University of California/Sponsoring Society or Association]. Copying and permissions notice: Authorization to copy this content beyond fair use (as specified in Sections 107 and 108 of the U. S. Copyright Law) for internal or personal use, or the internal or personal use of specific clients, is granted by [the Regents of the University of California/on behalf of the Sponsoring Society] for libraries and other users, provided that they are registered with and pay the specified fee via Rightslink?on [Caliber (
http://caliber.ucpress.net/)/ AnthroSource (http://www.anthrosource.net)] or directly with the Copyright Clearance Center, http://www.copyright.com."

NOTICE: If your article is not available online, you may scan your article from the paper edition of your journal and post a PDF copy online as per the guidelines above.

Downloading a PDF of your article for personal use
If you would like to download a printable PDF of your article for personal use, you may do so by visiting
Caliber or AnthroSource. Downloading is easy: perform a search of your article, click on your article, and then select 'PDF' or 'PDF Plus'. The file will automatically download to your desktop. If your insitution does not subscribe to Caliber or AnthroSource, you will be able to purchase a PDF via pay-per-view.

Finding Journal Submission Guidelines
If you are interested in obtaining any of our journals' submission guidelines, you should consult our
list of journals. Select the title you wish to view by clicking on the journal's name, and then click on 'Submit an Article' from the right-hand menu. This page will list all of the submission guidelines that you need, from manuscript format to editorial contact details.

Discounts on UC Press journal subscriptions
University of California Press offers its authors a one-time, 50% discount on a print or electronic journal subscription for the volume in which their articles appear (For example, if you published an article in Vol. 3, No. 4 of a particular journal, you will receive a 50% discount on all issues in Vol. 3).
