    • For questions about translating products into other languages, please contact Barry Johnson at barryj@hkusa.com.
    • If you intend to copy materials for use in a course packet or make multiple copies for another classroom use, contact your local reproduction rights organization. U.S. requesters should contact the Copyright Clearance Center at www.copyright.com.
    • If you intend to use Human Kinetics material for any other purpose, or if a publication is needed in an alternative format for a student with disabilities, you must submit an online permissions request form. Questions about completing the form can be addressed to permissions@hkusa.com.

Information for Authors

You need permission to use material you have written 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 for another publisher. Refer to your contract for details or contact HK’s Proprietary Rights Manager at permissions@hkusa.com.
