Copyright Permission Request Form

This form is provided for submission of copyright permission requests to use articles, data, and/ or figure(s) from any of the ASLO journals.

It is the policy of the Association for the Sciences of Limnology & Oceanography (ASLO) to require a per figure fee of $50 for reproducing figures from its journals. This fee is only required if the copyrighted figure is to appear in a for-profit publication and is not the original work of the individual who is requesting permission to reprint the figure or work.

If the copyrighted figure is to be used in a publication for a not-for-profit institution or organization such as a college or university, the figures may be reproduced at no charge. ASLO also grants permission, without requiring a fee, to make digital or hard copies of part or all of articles appearing in its journals for personal or educational use.

All copyrighted works, whether displayed electronically or in print, should be properly acknowledged as follows:
