Licensing and Permissions

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has partnered with Copyright Clearance Center to process all permission requests for AAP published material. Requests to reproduce material from articles copyrighted in journals and books published by the AAP should be directed to Copyright Clearance Center Marketplace.

We use this service of the Copyright Clearance Center to expedite permission requests. To access CCC Marketplace, go directly to Marketplace and search by title or ISBN. Follow the prompts provided in the system to complete your request.

Additional Information About AAP Permissions & Licensing

Authors requesting permission to reuse their previously published material in a new publication for which they are the author (or editor) must go through the Copyright Clearance Center process outlined above. For “Requestor Type,” the author should select “Author of this AAP article” or “Author of requested content.”

The AAP can only approve permission requests for material that is owned by the AAP. Please ensure that any figure/image/table/graph used in an AAP article is not credited to another source. If the material you want to reproduce is credited to another source, you must contact that source directly.

You must reproduce any figure/image/table/graph exactly as it was originally published by the AAP. No deletions, alterations, or other changes may be made to the information or statistical data without the written consent of the AAP.

For journal content, the AAP will only grant permission for the reuse of an entire article, figure, image, table, or graph. The AAP will not grant permission for the reuse of portions of text from a journal article.

Permission will not be granted for any AAP material that has not been published.  Permission also will not be granted to repost the full text of journal articles on a third-party site (other than author’s institutional Web site or local repository).

The AAP is happy to discuss opportunities to reuse AAP material in electronic health records, collaborate on custom publishing or special sales of AAP materials, or translate complete AAP works. 

For permission to reuse material not covered by Copyright Clearance Center, please contact the AAP directly.
