Permissions Requests

If you would like to reproduce or translate a chapter, journal article, text extract, figures or audio extract from a Cambridge publication, you will need to submit a 'Permissions Request Form'.

Cambridge University Press grants permission freely for the reproduction in another work of a short prose extract (less than 400 words), a single figure or a single table in which it holds rights (see the important caveat in the Notes below). In such cases a request for permission need not be submitted, but the reproduced material must be accompanied by a full citation of the original source.

Keep in mind that Cambridge University Press may not be able to grant permission for the use of all the material it publishes. In particular, illustrations, tables, poetry or other extensive quotations included in Cambridge publications, may have been reproduced by Cambridge with the permission of another rights holder. Always check the caption or citation to ensure that Cambridge is the rights holder before proceeding.

IMPORTANT: from the 18th January 2017, we will be making changes to our permission-granting process due to the introduction of a new, company-wide sales order management system.

We will be asking all customers whether they are an individuala representative of a business, or a freelancer working on behalf of an individual or a business, in order to establish who will be paying permissions fees, if applicable. All new business customers must be set up with a credit account and pay for permissions on invoice; all individuals must be set up with a pre-pay account and pay for permissions on quotation. The Permissions Sales team will assist customers in this new process. 

Our Permission Request Form is below. When submitting your form, please select the appropriate office:
