JVIB Permissions Forms

When a manuscript is submitted to the Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB), the corresponding author is required to complete a number of forms related to copyright and permissions.

Forms Included in This Section


JVIB Sample Copyright Transfer Agreement

Before the peer review process can begin, every author is required to sign a Copyright Transfer Agreement, which is a standard legal document used in publishing that provides JVIB the exclusive legal right to reproduce, publish, sell, and distribute the content of a manuscript.


JVIB Photo Release Form (Subject)

If a manuscript includes a photograph of an individual, a release form needs to be completed by the subject of the image that provides JVIB permission to publish his or her likeness.


JVIB Photo Release Form (Photographer)

If a manuscript includes a photograph that was not taken by the manuscript's author, a release form needs to be completed by the photographer that provides JVIB permission to publish the photograph.


Permission to Reprint Material in JVIB Form

If a manuscript includes any material that has been published elsewhere—for example, a bar graph, form, table, or chart—a release form giving JVIB permission to reproduce the material needs to be signed by a representative of the original publisher of the information.
