Special Permissions Arrangements

We excel in creating what we think of as “special brews”: customized permission arrangements that we craft for qualified researchers or clinicians who are precluded from purchasing and using original published material as is. If you would like to request authorization, contact WPS Rights & Permissions at rights@wpspublish.com. We help qualified individuals and organizations arrange for authorized reprinting, adaptation, or use in translation of our copyrighted materials.
