2. Permissions

Crediting the source of copyrighted material is not an acceptable substitute for obtaining formal written permission. It is the author’s responsibility to secure and cover rights and reproduction costs for copyright material, both written and visual. For illustrations, in a separate file, authors should specify format for captions, which acknowledge source and copyright, and provide a copy of the illustrations they wish to include in their article.

3. Copyright

Synthesis invites original papers and does not generally consider previously published work. In exceptional cases, the journal considers the publication of work that has appeared elsewhere, in their original form or in a revised version, provided that the author has secured copyright for this purpose.

Submissions must not be under review for any journal, edited collection, or conference proceedings. If the article, or a part of it, or any other version of it, has appeared or is scheduled to appear in another publication, the details of this publication must be made known to the editors at the time of submission. Before publication, the authors must complete and return to the editors the Synthesis copyright form. Contributors retain their right to republish their article or part of it in works written or edited by themselves under the condition that they acknowledge the original source of publication.
