Session 8 – Post-acceptance manuscript editing

Session 8.3

Sunday, 26 June 11.15am-12.30pm (Valencia time)

Artistic licence: artwork permission practices at The Lancet group

Online journals and publications are now commonplace and copying and downloading images for reuse has become easy, especially in the era of Open Access, which carries the risk of unknowingly breaching copyright. Permission to reproduce published artwork usually needs to be sought from the original publisher or creator, requiring publishing teams to be informed on this process. At The Lancet we have developed a streamlined workflow to guide our teams on artwork permission processes, which we will be talking through in this presentation, covering initial artwork checks, author queries, and types of permission needed for different scenarios of image reproduction.

This session will be of interest to manuscript and journal editors, production teams, administrative teams and all roles involved in handling artwork before publication.
