Reprint Requests

If you are requesting permission to reprint or otherwise reproduce material from a University of Virginia Press book, please submit your request directly to our Permissions Manager using the contact information below. All requests must be in writing.

Before submitting a permission request, please be sure that the material you are requesting belongs to the University of Virginia Press and is not credited to another source. Credit lines can be found in the footnotes, endnotes, acknowledgments, captions, or on the copyright page. If the material is credited to another source, direct your request to that other party and not to the Press.

Please be aware that other departments at the University publish their own material. For permission, contact those departments directly; this applies to The Hedgehog Review, Meridian, and The Virginia Quarterly Review, among other publications.

Image or Figure Permissions

Check the book to make sure the image or figure you wish to reproduce has not been credited to another source; this information may be found in the caption below each illustration, on the copyright page, or in a credit section of the publication. University of Virginia Press can only authorize material for which it holds copyright. For material owned by another person or organization, you will need to secure permission directly from the cited source.

Occasionally, maps or other drawings are controlled by the University of Virginia Press. Please submit permission requests for these images according to the “Reprint Request” guidelines above.
