Before you send us a permission request, please check the references or acknowledgements of the content (text, illustration, table, photograph, or figure) that you wish to reproduce, as UCL IOE Press and Trentham Books may not always be the copyright holder.

You do not always need to request permission from us for short extracts that fall within the concept of ‘Fair Dealing’. Fair Dealing includes:

  • single and continuous prose extracts of up to 400 words;
  • a series of quotations from the same source that totals up to 800 words and where no single extracts exceeds 300 words.

However, even when an extract falls within ‘Fair Dealing’, a full acknowledgement to the book, author/editor, and publishing house should always be included.

Permission is always required for any features such as illustrations, tables, photograph, and figures to be reproduced in their entirety. If modifications are required to these features, please submit both the original and modified feature in your permission request.
