As a leader in scholarly publishing, the University of Chicago Press has embraced its obligation to disseminate scholarship of the highest standard, to advance scholarly conversation within and across traditional disciplines, and to help define new areas of knowledge and intellectual endeavor. When you publish an article in a journal of the University of Chicago Press or one of its publishing partners, you reap the benefit of a professional publishing house with over a century of commitment to the scholarly enterprise. With our publishing expertise in both traditional and emerging channels of communication, we ensure the widespread distribution of your article throughout the world and to the broadest audience.

The University of Chicago Press supports and encourages our authors’ own efforts to promote and disseminate their works. These Guidelines answer the questions we hear most often from our authors about their rights to reuse their articles. Your rights are governed by your Publication Agreement and by the provisions of these Guidelines, as in effect at the time of your proposed use of your article.
