Citation

You must give complete credit to the original source in connection with any reproduction or adaptation of the licensed material:

 

“Reprinted from Publication title, Vol / edition number, Author(s), Title of article / title of chapter, Pages No., Copyright (Year), with permission from Elsevier [OR APPLICABLE SOCIETY COPYRIGHT OWNER].”

 

Also Lancet special credit - “Reprinted from The Lancet, Vol. number, Author(s), Title of article, Pages No., Copyright (Year), with permission from Elsevier.”

Format

Format reflects the means of reproduction of Elsevier content.

 

Unless specifically granted in the license, the license does not allow the use of the material in any other edition or by any additional means of reproduction including (by way of example) motion pictures, sound tapes, and phonograph records; nor does the license cover book clubs, abridgements, journal cover image, or selections which may be made of the publication except as specified in the license.

Portion

Portion describes which element of Elsevier content you wish to reuse. Portions offered in the drop-down menu include:

 

Back to top

Quantity (Number of Copies)

Quantity reflects the number of recipients, regardless of material format (print or electronic). A publication delivered as a package in both print and electronic format to the same recipient reflects a print run of one; the same publication delivered in print format to one recipient and electronic format to a second recipient, however, reflects a quantity of two.

 

For example, If you wish to use the requested material for a newsletter which will be distributed to the same 100 people both in print and on CD-ROM, you should enter a quantity of 100. If, however, the print newsletter will go to 100 recipients and the CD-ROM version of the newsletter to a different 100 recipients, you should enter a quantity of 200.

Requestor Type

Requestor type identifies the type of organization you represent and your intended reuse of the content. Your response will determine licensing rights and associated Elsevier pricing. Please select the requestor type offered in the drop-down menu which best reflects for whom the license is being procured:

Translations

Elsevier provides the option of translation for reuse or reproduction of articles.  Please see below for specific details concerning your type of request.

 

Reprints

 

Reuse Requests

 

Enter your Translation order request through RightsLink and an Elsevier representative will contact you within two business days with a grant or deny notice.

 

 

Back to top

Reprints

Reprints are customized reproductions of articles printed on high-quality paper. Reprints can be used to share articles with your prospects at trade shows and conferences, or mailed to your customers.

 

Enter your reprint order through RightsLink. All orders are reviewed by Elsevier for approval. The process takes up to two business days. You will receive an e-mail confirmation after placing your request through RightsLink, listing a temporary job ticket number. You will receive a second e-mail upon approval of the request, listing an order license number and referencing the amount charged to your account.

 

RightsLink processes reprints using the following Elsevier business rules:

Note: Reprint customizations increase processing time.

Reprint Customizations

All Elsevier reprints are printed on high-quality 60 lb. glossy stock in their original format (black & white or color) unless otherwise selected during the order process. The standard dimensions are 8 1/2" x 11" or A4. An article can be reprinted with customizations such as disclaimers, inventory codes, product inserts, and other customizations as described below. If the customization causes an increase in the number of pages in the reprint, the price will increase accordingly.

E-Prints

E-Prints are electronic copies of an article, in PDF form, for posting on a website, disseminating by e-mail, or simply hosting locally for repeated viewings.

 

Enter your E-Print order request through RightsLink and an Elsevier representative will contact you within two business days with a grant or deny notice. You will be provided with a proof of the E-Print prior to order placement for approved order requests.

 

Elsevier has enabled three E-Prints offerings for purchase through RightsLink:

 

E-Prints are delivered to you in the form of an electronic file. Double-click the link that is embedded in the e-mail and save it to your computer desktop for later viewing. You must be connected to the Internet the first time you open the E-Print. This allows your E-Print to validate itself. Though it is possible to repeatedly view the E-Print from the link embedded in the e-mail, this technique requires an Internet connection and involves a setup process. Saving the file to your desktop is generally more efficient.
