We no longer require faxes or other hardcopies of the Copyright Transfer Agreement. Instead we have introduced a convenient new process for signing your copyright transfer agreement electronically (eCTA) that will save you considerable time and effort. If your paper is accepted, the Author whom you flag as being the formal Corresponding Author for the paper will receive an e-mail with a link to an online eCTA form. This will enable the Corresponding Author to complete the copyright form electronically within ScholarOne Manuscripts on behalf of all authors on the manuscript. You may preview the copyright terms and conditions here.

Permission grants — if the manuscript contains extracts, including illustrations, from other copyright works (including material from on-line or intranet sources) it is the author's responsibility to obtain written permission from the owners of the publishing rights to reproduce such extracts using the Wiley permission request form (Permission Request Form). The author is also responsible for identifying and acknowledging any trademarks or service marks used in the manuscript.

The Copyright Transfer Agreement and the Permissions Request Form should be uploaded as ‘supplementary files not for review’ with the online submission of your article.
