Consent to Publish and Copyright Agreement
Journals, Proceedings, and Collections
It is required that Authors provide a formal written Consent to Publish.
It is also strongly recommended that Authors provide a Transfer of
Copyright to the Publisher. The signed Consent to Publish gives the
Publisher the Author(s)' permission to publish the Work. The signed
Transfer of Copyright empowers the Publisher on behalf of the Author(s)
to protect the Work and its image against any unauthorized use and to
properly authorize dissemination of the Work by means of printed
publications, offprints, reprints, electronic files, licensed photocopies,
microform editions, translations, document delivery and secondary information
sources such as abstracting, reviewing and indexing services,
including converting the Work into machine readable form and storing
it in electronic databases.
The Publisher hereby requests that the Author(s) complete and return
this form promptly so that the Work may be readied for publication.
Title of Contribution ("Work"):______________________________________________
Name of Publication: Asian Journal of Mathematics
- The Author(s) hereby consents that the Publisher publishes the Work.
- The Author(s) warrants that the Work has not been published before
in any form except as a preprint, that the Work is not concurrently
submitted to another publication, that all Authors are properly
credited, and generally that the Author(s) has the right to make
the grants made to the Publisher complete and unencumbered.
The Author(s) also warrants that the Work does not libel anyone,
infringe anyone's copyright, or otherwise violate anyone's statutory
or common law rights.
- The Author(s) hereby transfers to the Publisher the copyright of
the Work named above whereby the Publisher shall have the exclusive
and unlimited right to publish the said Work and to translate
(or authorize others to translate) it wholly or in part throughout
the World during the full term of copyright including renewals and
extensions and all subsidiary rights as indicated above subject
only to item 4.
- The Work may be reproduced by any means for educational and
scientific purposes by the Author(s) or by others without fee
or permission with the exception of reproduction by services
that collect fees for delivery of documents. The Author(s) may
use part or all of this Work or its image in any future works
of his/her (their) own. In any reproduction, the original publication
by the Publisher must be credited in the following manner:
"First published in [Publication] in [volume and number, or year],
published by the International Press," and the copyright
notice in proper form must be placed on all copies. Any publication
or other form of reproduction not meeting these requirements
will be deemed to be unauthorized.
- In the event of receiving any request to reprint or translate all
or part of the Work, the Publisher shall seek to inform the Author(s).
- If the Author(s) wishes to retain copyright of the content and
image of this Work, in the Author(s)' name(s) or the name of a
third party (e.g., employer)*, the Author(s) may strike out
items 3, 4, and 5 above. In this case the Author(s) nevertheless
gives the Publisher unlimited rights to publish and distribute the
Work in any form and to translate (or allow others to translate)
the Work wholly or in part throughout the World and to accept payment
for this. The copyright holder retains the right to duplicate the
Work by any means and to permit others to do the same with
the exception of reproduction by services that collect fees for
delivery of documents. In each case of authorized duplication of
the Work, the Author(s) must still ensure that the original publication
by the Publisher is properly credited. If the Author(s) does not
choose, or is unable, to assign copyright to the Publisher, the
Author(s) agrees that the International Press is not
responsible for protecting the Work from misuse by others, and
the copyright holder agrees to hold the International Press harmless
in all matters concerning copyright. If copyright is not to be
transferred to the Publisher, please indicate how the copyright
line should read:
- The International Press will provide the Author(s) with 50
offprints of the Work, gratis. If the Publisher
authorizes the publication of the Work or its translation in a book,
or part of a book, in accordance with item 3 or 6 above, the Publisher
will endeavor to secure a copy of said book for the Author(s), gratis;
the Publisher cannot guarantee this performance by the second publisher.
This form is to be signed by the Author(s) or, in the case of
a "work-made-for-hire," by the employer. If there is more than one
Author, then either all must sign the Consent to Publish and Copyright
Agreement, or one Author may sign for all provided the signer appends a
statement signed by all the Authors that attests that each Author has
approved this agreement and has agreed to be bound by it.
*Please note: If the Work was created by U.S. Government employees
in the scope of their official duties, the Work is not copyrightable
and all provisions of this agreement relating to copyright
(other than item 2) are void and of no effect. The Consent to Publish
provisions remain in effect, however, and must be signed.
