A 30-minute consultation session to talk through your particular permissions issue, in which we will:

  • get to know your particular permissions issues related to your work
  • help you identify content that is free to use without permission
  • help you navigate fair use guidelines so that you are able to make informed decisions about what to use and whether (or not) to seek permissions
  • determine if further research on the content you want to use is necessary and when it is necessary to hire a copyright attorney

Evaluation of Citations & Securing Permissions Work:

Fill out the inquiry form below and we will send you a cost estimate of your project. Often, before carrying out this type of work, we recommend purchasing a $49 consultation (in the left-hand column). This consultation will provide you guidelines that will help to reduce the cost of any additional evaluation of individual citations and securing permissions services you might need.

Evaluation of Individual Citations (flat rate) includes:

  • research to find and/or confirm the source and publication date of the material you are using
  • evaluation of the risk of using individual citations based on fair use criteria
  • permissions recommendation that includes work around ideas so that you can avoid seeking permissions and any information I come across to help you seek permissions for the content if you decide to go that route

Securing Permissions (hourly work) includes:

  • research to determine who owns the copyright over the content you would like to use
  • determining what information they require to consider granting you permission to use their content
  • reaching out to the copyright owners to request permissions

    If you think the first five pages are not representative of your proof/copyediting needs, then send us 5 pages that do represent the needs of your work. If after agreeing to a rate, GSF staff discovers that the editing required is heavier than the sample suggested, then the rate will need to be renegotiated, or the order will be canceled and the client's payment will be fully refunded. If you do not have a Word document that you can upload, please email us.
