Open Access Policy
This is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or their institution. The journal allows readers to read, download, print, search, or link to the full texts of its articles, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. Any other use, including distributing non-commercially, must be approved by the copyright holder. Requests for permission to reuse the articles should be sent to the State Historical Society of Iowa. The oldest content in the magazine is now public domain. Please include a complete citation when using public domain/out of copyright content from Annals of Iowa. We would prefer that you link to the content rather than reposting it elsewhere.
Copyright and Reprint Policy
The editor of the Annals of Iowa asks all authors to assign copyright for their article to the publisher of the journal, the State Historical Society of Iowa. The Society is an ongoing institution capable of protecting copyright over a long period. We also receive occasional requests from noncommercial publishers (such as local historical societies or community history groups) to reprint articles from the Annals. In the interest of long-term protection and making historical material (originally published with the support of public funds) readily available to the public, we think it desirable for the Society to hold copyright on Annals articles.
The Society will grant authors permission for subsequent use of their own material in their own work without restriction. The Society will also undertake to protect authors' interests against unfair use of their articles. Working through the Copyright Clearance Center in New York, we are able to control photocopying of authors' articles. Free copying is allowed for personal use, scholarly research or reference, and limited classroom teaching. There is a fee imposed for photocopying beyond the provisions of "fair use." For copies made for other purposes, the user must pay one dollar for each copy of the article. Part of the fee goes to the Copyright Clearance Center to defray processing, the balance to the Society.
The author may include the officially published version of the article (version of record) in an institutional or disciplinary repository, provided the posting includes a prominent statement of the full bibliographical details, and a link to the online edition of the journal.
There are no article submission charges nor article processing charges (APC) to publish.
