Sample letters requesting deposit rights are available below.
If you do not already have permission to deposit your work in a digital repository, you may need to write directly to the publisher to request this permission. To make this process easier, we have provided templates you may use when contacting publishers. You can modify these templates as needed or just fill in the blanks with the required information (name and address of publisher, citations of published articles, etc.). Some publishers can be contacted about permissions via an online form on their web site, so you may be able to cut and paste the text there.
