Permission to Use Non-AAS Material in AAS Journals

When you submit an article for publication in an AAS journal and you choose to use material (including short extracts or diagrams) published previously by other authors in journals other than those of the AAS, then you must first obtain the written permission of the author and the publisher concerned. You must submit evidence that all the necessary permissions have been obtained when you submit your article. We do not perform this task for you. You can use the template below to obtain permission from the author and the publisher.
