Using 3rd Party Materials:
Please familiarize yourself with the Springer Nature Guide to Copyright and Permissions (, which contains advice on including third-party content or material that you have created yourself and published elsewhere in your manuscript.
Third-party content is defined as any material within the manuscript that is not your original work. Third-party content may consist of text passages, figures, photos, poems, song lyrics, screenshots, etc. and be found in many places such as, but not limited to, the Internet, print and online books and articles, theses, annual reports, conference material, photocopies, course packages, and translations. In particular, you should pay close attention to sensitive images containing identifiable persons, logos, brands/trademarks, images from agencies, or from the Internet as well as text content such as song lyrics, poems, interviews, social media content, and references to commercial entities.
Every author is responsible for clearing the rights for any third-party content. It is recommended to keep all quotations and inclusion of copyrighted material to a minimum wherever possible, as gaining permissions can be time-consuming and expensive for the author.
To obtain permission to use third-party material in the manuscript visit the Rights Holder website or the Copyright Clearance Center ( If the material is not found, please exert your best efforts to use our Permissions Request Form and/or Release Request Form (to obtain permission from interviewees or other identifiable individuals or the owners of identifiable property in the source material) for your request. If the rights-holder issues their own form, please ensure that the document they provide includes all Required Rights listed in the ‘Guide to Obtaining Permissions’ section in our Springer Nature Third Party Permissions Guidelines (
Suggestion. It’s a good idea to begin the permissions-clearing process as early as possible, to avoid delays to the publishing process. The author may need to negotiate with copyright holders if they do not meet the publisher's requirements. It is crucial that the rights author obtain are sufficient to cover the rights author has granted to the publisher under the publishing agreement.
Attached please find the „Contributor Agreement“ form. All authors submitting papers to a contributed volume must grant specific permission to publish the work. This is a legal requirement that arises from provisions of copyright law and acts as additional protection for the author. Each corresponding author should print the form, enter the title of the chapter as well as the names of the authors at the top of the form and sign it. Important: details of the chapter authors (sequence, names, name, and affiliation of the corresponding author) given in the Contributor Agreement should be complete, final, and correspond to the details given in the manuscript. As this is a legal document, any changes cannot be accepted at a later stage.
All chapter authors (corresponding authors, co-authors, contributing authors) include their affiliation and email address in their manuscript. Their email addresses (also published in the chapters) will be used by Springer to provide authors with a personal MySpringer account where they can download a free copy of the eBook.
