Publishers' Thesis Policies: Publishers' Thesis Policies

Selected lists of publishers

These are selected lists of publishers.  Proper attribution is required by all publishers.  If your article was published by another publisher, please contact thesis AT library.caltech.edu.  Please report any broken links.

Publisher permission automatic

For these publishers if you want to use content from your own articles in your thesis, you don’t need to ask permission.  Links lead to the relevant documentation at the publishers' websites.  Please note that some publishers, most notably AAAS, ACS, National Academy of Sciences, and Nature, have a policy of reserving the right to first publication.  Links are provided below each of these publishers' standard thesis permission pages, to their policies on embargoing/right of first publication.  The upshot is that chapters based on articles in their journals should not be released for distribution prior to publication at the journal's website, but are not subject to any further delay beyond the official posting date.

We're not currently aware of any major publishers, in which Caltech researchers publish, that do not have a blanket policy in place with respect to re-use of material in theses.
