Dear Journal Contributor,

Please find below important information and guidelines for Berghahn Journal article authors.

Copyright Transfer Agreement

Once your article has been accepted for publication, the journal's editor will ask you to sign an author agreement. This agreement transfers your copyright to Berghahn or its publishing partner for the journal, as stated on the form you receive. This form will also outline the rights you are entitled to regarding dissemination and use of the article in its post-print or published form.

As the administrator of your article's copyright on behalf of the Journal, Berghahn will take on the full responsibility of managing any licensing and permissions requests to enable the widest possible distribution of your scholarship across the fields relevant to your article. We understand that this stipulation means that you do not have total control over the circulation of your article; however, as the copyright transfer agreement details, the rights we grant our authors in the republication and dissemination of their own work are extensive. Ultimately, our agreements are designed to ensure that priority is given to the best interests of the overall academic community that Berghahn, as a long-time scholarly publisher, serves.
