transfer of copyright
Authors will generally be asked to transfer copyright to the IUCr electronically during article submission. This form may be used to download a customised Transfer of Copyright Agreement form for a submitted article:
Enter the surname of one author and the reference code for the article.
- Both the surname of one author and the article reference code must be supplied.
- Supply the article reference code as a combination of two letters and four numbers (with leading zeros if necessary), e.g. CQ1045, rt0023.
Authors of open-access articles will not be required to transfer copyright to the IUCr, but will instead be asked to agree to an open-access licence. This licence is identical to the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) Licence. For more information on open access, click here.
