When To Request Permission to Use HK Materials

Information for HK Authors

You need permission to use material you have authored for Human Kinetics. We require that you inform us of your plans to use your material elsewhere. There is usually no problem in granting the request and the fee is generally waived. However, we may deny a request to use substantial portions of your HK work in a competing work from another publisher. Refer to your contract for details or contact HK's Permissions Editor at

Response Time for Permissions Requests

Normal turnaround time to process permissions requests is approximately two weeks.
