Climates and Cultures in History is an Open Access publication. All articles published in the journal are freely available on this website, and there is no restriction on who may access or share the articles.
Authors of articles published in the journal retain the copyright to their article, making the version of record available under a CC BY 4.0 (Creative Commons) license.
Please take note of the following important information regarding copyright and originality:
- Articles must be original and must not have been published elsewhere, in part or in full.
- Authors, when quoting from someone else's work or when considering reproducing an illustration or table from a book or journal article, should make sure that they are not infringing a copyright.
- Although in general authors may quote from other published works, they should obtain permission from the holder of the copyright if they wish to quote substantial extracts or reproduce tables, plates or other illustrations. If the copyright-holder is not the author of the quoted or reproduced material, it is recommended that the permission of the author also be sought.
- Since CCH is an Open Access publication, all copyright clearances and other permission requests should clearly specify that the work will be re-printed on an Open Access basis under CC BY 4.0. If the person or company whose material you wish to reproduce cannot or will not authorise this type of usage, then you may need to select some other material to support your article, instead.
- Material in unpublished letters and manuscripts is also protected and must not be published unless permission has been obtained.
- The team at The White Horse Press can advise about copyright clearance and permission issues, but it is generally the author's responsibility to seek and secure appropriate permnissions, and any costs for copyright clearance generally fall to the author.
- A suitable acknowledgment of any borrowed material must always be made.
- All articles published in CCH are Open Access. They may therefore be reproduced, distributed and shared without limitation and without permission from the publisher, author, or editorial team.
- On publication, contributors will be sent a a .pdf file of their article, from which they are free to print as many further copies as they require, and to share as widely as they like under the terms of the CC BY 4.0 license.
