Reuse a journal, chapter or case study

Our online permissions clearance service is delivered through the Copyright Clearance Center’s Marketplace. This service provides a highly efficient, real time service to clear permission for the reuse, distribution or republication of our copyrighted materials.

The quick way to clear permissions

It is your responsibility to check that the material you want to use is owned by us. If you want to reuse a figure or table, you must check there are no copyright lines which indicate otherwise. 

  1. Locate the abstract of the content you wish to reuse on Emerald Insight
  2. Click on the ‘ Permissions’ link 
  3. Continue through the process at the Copyright Clearance Centre Marketplace website.

If we do not hold the copyright of an article, the link will not appear and you will not be able to clear permission through Marketplace. For permission to reuse this content, you will need to contact the copyright holder directly.
