Higher Education Copyright Clearance Service

We are now offering a manual copyright clearance service to provide additional support for our Higher Education customers. This service can be used to request quotes and invoices for the following:

  • Copyright fees to purchase digitised extracts from books and journals sourced from the Digital Content Store or elsewhere
  • Permission to make multiple copies of books and journals where not covered by the CLA HE Licence or the Second Extract Permissions Service

We have set up a dedicated online service through our website that connects you to our team which will be able to handle your HEIs requests by filling in a simple online form. We will not charge for providing this service, which will be in place until 1 January 2021.

Copyright fees and permissions fees will be invoiced monthly.

The service allows you to just pay the copyright fee without having to order a scan, and also to seek permissions to make multiple copies, get permission to copy material not covered by the licence or material not covered by SEPS (or above SEPS limits).

To make a request, simply email hepermissions@cla.co.uk or make a request via the link below.
