Creative Commons licensing terms

AIP Advances uses a Creative Commons licensing model.

Authors will retain copyright to their AIP Advances articles but must agree to apply the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License to their work. Under the terms of this license, no permission is required from the author(s) or publisher for members of the community to copy, distribute, transmit, or adapt the article content, provided that a proper, prominent and unambiguous attribution is given to the authors in a manner that makes clear that the materials are being re-used under permission of a Creative Commons license. AIP’s preferred format for attribution is as follows: Author names, AIP Advances, Vol. #, CID # (or Page #), (Year of publication); used in accordance with the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License.


It is imperative that any material used from other sources, including but not limited to figures, tables, and images, and which has been previously copyrighted, be cleared for reuse under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license. Express permission must be obtained from the copyright holder for inclusion of any such materials in an AIP Advances article. Please use the Reuse of Previously Published Material form.

Reuse of AIP material

Single copies of individual articles may be made for private use or research. Authorization is given to copy articles beyond the free use permitted under Sections 107 and 108 of the U.S. Copyright Law, provided that the copying fee of $30.00 per copy per article is paid to the Copyright Clearance Center, 222 Rosewood Drive, Danvers, MA 01923, USA, http://www.copyright.com. For classroom use fees, contact CCC’s Academic Permission Service. (Note: You will need to refer to the publication by its ISSN as listed above.)

Authorization does not extend to systematic or multiple reproduction, to copying for promotional purposes, to electronic storage or distribution, or to republication in any form. In all such cases, specific written permission from AIP must be obtained.

Permission is granted to quote from an AIP publication with the customary acknowledgment of the source. Republication of an article or portions thereof (e.g., excerpts of greater than 400 words, figures, tables, etc.) in original form or in translation, as well as other types of reuse (such as use in course packs or electronic reserves) require formal permission from AIP and may be subject to fees. Although it is not a legal requirement for permission, as a courtesy, an author of the original article should be informed of any request for republication/reuse.

For additional help, please see the Permission to Reuse AIP Material FAQ.

Obtaining permissions and payments of fees

Using RightsLink®: AIP has partnered with the Copyright Clearance Center to offer RightsLink®, a convenient online service that streamlines the permissions process. RightsLink® allows users to instantly obtain permissions and pay any related fees for reuse of copyrighted material directly from AIP's website. Once licensed, the material may be reused legally, according to the terms and conditions set forth in each unique license agreement.

To use the service, access the article you wish to license on Scitation and simply click on the Permissions/Reprints link in the abstract. If you have questions about RightsLink®, click on the link as described, and then click the "Help" button located in the top right-hand corner of the RightsLink® page.

Without using RightsLink®: It is preferable to send requests for permission for republication or other reuse of AIP journal or conference proceedings material to rights@aip.org. Response time can vary but usually runs between three and five working days.

If you must send your request by mail, please address it to:
