Books Permissions

SAGE Publishing has partnered with the Copyright Clearance Center for the administration of requests for permission to re-use and/or photocopy SAGE content. In most cases, requests made through the Copyright Clearance Center can be processed immediately. To request permission through the Copyright Clearance Center, please visit www.copyright.com. Please see further instructions below.

Tips for a Successful Permissions Request

  • Ensure the content you want to re-use is not credited to another source. SAGE can only grant permission for our own, original content, and any third-party material included within our publications is not included in any permission granted by SAGE.
  • Include as much identifying information as possible for the SAGE content you want to re-use, including the ISBN, title, author(s) and page or chapter numbers.
  • Describe the way you wish to re-use the content and what rights you require, including languages, formats, territories and the expected print run/number of readers.
  • Please allow sufficient time for processing your request. If your request cannot be immediately approved via copyright.com, depending on the nature of your request and content requested, it may take up to four weeks to process your permission request.

If your agreement does not contain any re-use terms, or if your intended use is outside the scope of your author agreement please contact the Permissions team.  Use of your material outside of the scope of your author agreement requires permission and may incur a fee.
