Requesting Permission from Cornell University Press

To facilitate your request, you may download our standard permission request form here.

You must include the following information, as appropriate:

A. For Anthology and Quotation/Print Excerpt Requests (our standard permission covers nonexclusive, English-language rights for inclusion in a single edition only)—
• your publisher (with full address)
• title of your publication
• territory required for distribution
• format(s) required (i.e., hardcover, paperback, and/or electronic)
• estimated number of copies of each format of this edition
• estimated list price of each format
• publication date of each format
• word count of the Cornell University Press text to be reprinted *
• copy of the material you wish to reprint showing all edits you will make (including those made only for length)

*If your request includes figures/illustrations, check the credit line and our book's Acknowledgments or copyright page. If a third-party rightsholder is given, you must request permission from that rightsholder rather than from Cornell.

B. For Photocopy, Course Packets, and Electronic Reserve Requests—
• full contact details of the institution/organization making the request
• class name, professor name, semester
• number of pages to be copied
• number of copies required


Readers with Disabilities

The Americans with Disabilities Act mandates that higher education institutions provide individuals with print-related disabilities access to educational materials in a format that facilitates learning. To support these institutions, Cornell University Press has partnered with Bookshare to create and distribute alternative formats of our books. Please note that we ourselves do not create or maintain these alternative format versions; any requests to download or use these files should be directed to Bookshare.

If the book you require is not currently in the Bookshare library, Cornell University Press has no objection to your producing a suitable version of one of our works, provided that (1) all copyright information, as it appears in the front pages of our book, is included in your alternative format version, and (2) the use of said version is restricted to individuals registered with your institution as having a print-related disability. In the event your institution decides to create its own file, please know that the Permissions Department is unable to furnish print copies for this purpose.



*Several Cornell University departments have their own publishing programs. You must write them directly for all rights and permission inquiries. These departments include:

• Cornell Southeast Asia Program (
• Cornell East Asia Program (
• Administrative Science Quarterly (
• ILR Review (
• Cornell Law Review (
