Reprint and Copy Policy

American Philosophical Quarterly

Reprinting and Copying for Class Use: The American Philosophical Quarterly regrets that it cannot make reprints available to authors. However, authors have the journal's permission to reproduce limited numbers of their contributions for the use of colleagues and students. (Two copies of the relevant issue will be provided gratis for this purpose.)

While the journal holds copyright on materials published in its pages, it routinely accords contributors permission to reprint in books or anthologies authored or co-authored by themselves. All other requests to reprint should be addressed to the business office.

The journal gives teachers and their institutions blanket permission for reproducing individual articles for class use at a fee of $1 per copy, payable in advance to the American Philosophical Quarterly.

PDFs are permitted and issued for the following:

  • Tenure dossier.
  • Special workshops the author is moderating.
  • Other requests to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
  • All PDFs will include a statement of copyright and a provision that the articles will not be photocopied, distributed, or used for purposes other than the terms agreed to by UIP.

Postprints are permitted for:

  • Non-profit archives and repositories; Articles must be at least one year old. UIP requires a publication statement to be posted along with the postprint and a link back to the UIP Journals page.
  • Personal Web sites; Articles must be at least one year old; commercial web sites: articles must be at least three years old. UIP requires a publication statement to be posted along with the postprint and a link back to the UIP Journals page.

Please contact the Rights and Permissions Manager for requests for APQ issues published beginning in 2009. For issues prior to 2009, please contact APQ Executive Editor Nicholas Rescher (
