Review Copy Policy
If you are a publisher, editor, or author of a professional publication that reviews books and media on art education, you may request a free review copy of an NAEA title. E-mail: email@example.com. Be sure to provide title, author, and ISBN number of the book; the name of your publication; and your complete mailing address.
NAEA will send your complimentary review copy if you agree to send us a copy of the review when it is published.
Reprint Permission & Policy
ALL requests for permission to photocopy, reprint, digitize, or re-use copyrighted content from NAEA publications (including books, NAEA News, Art Education, Studies in Art Education, NAEA Advisory, Translations, and text of material on the NAEA website) are processed through the Copyright Clearance Center (http://www.copyright.com). You may direct inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Copyright Clearance Center's customer service department at 978-646-2600.
The Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), rather than NAEA, will now directly process your request for reproducing material for academic course packets; digital/electronic uses, such as posting on other websites or internal use by faculty and students; and reprinting of material (such as an article) for inclusion in a book.
CCC is designed to process requests for reprinting multiple copies and/or reaching multiple users. CCC will charge a fee for reproduction of NAEA copyrighted materials, and your payment will go to the CCC on behalf of NAEA.
If you have a question or need help in navigating Copyright Clearance Center's online services, call their Customer Service line at 978-646-2600, or e-mail email@example.com.
Please note: The permissions granted apply to textual material only; NAEA does not own rights to the images (photos and artworks) in NAEA publications. For permission to reprint a specific image, you will need to contact the copyright holder or licensor (see caption for information).
Updated Fees. The fees charged by NAEA for the past decade, have now been updated in order to keep pace with the rapidly changing print/digital environment, and to remain comparable to fees charged by other education nonprofits.
For commercial book publishers seeking permission to reprint material, NAEA will charge a fee based on circulation/distribution, rather than a per-page fee.
Permission to Reprint Without a Fee. As before, NAEA will not charge members for the following uses:
A teacher may make multiple handouts for one-time use at a school-related function, or professional conference, free of charge.
Libraries may put the material on electronic reserve for use of faculty and students, generally without charge.
Individuals may make single copies for their own use, free of charge.
NAEA-published authors may reprint/distribute their own articles, free of charge. When you reprint any materials from NAEA, please be sure to include the following acknowledgment on all printed copies or digitized formats: Reprinted with permission from The National Art Education Association, Reston, VA USA, [insert copyright date of article or book].
The reprint permissions process described here pertains to those who already have access to actual material they wish to reprint. If you need a single copy of an article published by NAEA, contact us and we will send you a PDF or a fax of the article. And if you should have further questions, please e-mail us your request to NAEA Reprint Permissions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All claims must be submitted in writing to email@example.com:
• For subscribers within the U.S., claims for missing issues must be made within three months of the delivery date.
• For international subscribers (outside of the U.S.), claims for missing issues must be made within six months of the delivery date.
NAEA is unable to honor claims made outside of these timeframes. However, issues claimed after this time period may be purchased at the single copy rate, if available.

Replacements based on an item received in damaged condition may obtain one hard copy replacement per year. Digital replacements will be supplied to subscribers when no confirmation from the United States Postal Service (USPS) confirming the returned mailing exists.
Refunds for overpayments are only granted upon written request to email@example.com.
Subscriptions cannot be back-dated or post-dated, and are not transferrable.
NAEA does not offer agency discounts.
Should you or your client wish to print multiple copies, post a pdf, or use the information in a publication that will be offered for sale, please send a written request to NAEA Publications, firstname.lastname@example.org, for permission to use the material(s).
