    The American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) retains ownership of all material printed in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research (JBMR).

    The ASBMR may approve or refuse permission to reproduce JBMR material, or may request modifications to the method of presentation or citation. (See #6 below for specific restrictions and some reasons permission may be withheld.)

    The American Society for Bone and Mineral Research may charge a fee for use of copyrighted material. In cases in which a fee is applicable, the client will receive an invoice from the JBMR office.

    Permission requests should be sent to the Managing Editor of the JBMR well in advance of print (or use) date; all requestors will receive a response within two business days (this response may be a request for additional information). The requests must include the following:

    1. Exact citation (example: J Bone Miner Res 2001;16:823-831, Berger et al.)
    2. Specific reference to figure(s), table(s) or other information to be reproduced from an article if the permission request does not relate to an entire article.
    3. The request must note that the information is to be reproduced without modification, or, if the requestor wants to modify the material, the modified version must be appended to the request. Modification may delay the response to permission requests since in many cases the modification must be approved by the editor and/or the authors of the original work.
    4. Information regarding how the material will be presented:
      • If in book form, provide title, edition number, date of publication.
      • If a periodical, name of journal or magazine and circulation.
      • If part of a non-print presentation, provide nature of presentation (educational, other) and audience number.
      • If part of a website, provide mock-up of exactly how information will be presented on the web site and for what period of time the material will appear on the website.
      • Other (dissertation etc.), please detail in your letter to the JBMR.

     Annual Meeting Abstracts: The Society does not provide permission for other entities to reproduce and/or distribute selected abstract(s) prior to their presentation at the meeting. (The Abstracts book is mailed to pre-registered Annual Meeting attendees who purchase it, and provided to other Annual Meeting attendees on-site at the meeting. ASBMR members receive their copies after the Annual Meeting. Contents are embargoed until one hour after the time of their presentation. The CD-ROM and Abstracts On-line may be made available prior to presentation by written permission of the ASBMR, but contents remain embargoed until one hour after the time of their presentation.

    All permission requests for reproduction of meeting abstracts must be directed to the Managing Editor of the JBMR. The request should include: 

    • The full text of the abstracts to be reproduced, with abstract authors and title, abstract number and page number as it appears in the JBMR supplement
    • An accompanying reference list that provides the references of all abstracts on the same topic (This list will be reviewed and approved/modified by the JBMR editorial office; this reference list must be printed/distributed with the full text reproduction of the selected abstracts.)
    • The number of copies to be distributed
    • The method of distribution
    • The intended audience.

    Should ASBMR grant permission for abstract reproduction, the following must occur: 

    • A disclaimer must be prominently displayed/printed (oftentimes this appears on the inside front cover), indicating that the decision to reproduce the full text of the abstracts was not made by the ASBMR. Example: Selection of abstracts was made by {company name} and does not necessarily include all abstracts presented on this subject as the {27th} Annual Meeting of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research {Nashville , Tennessee, USA, 9/23-27/2005}. The compilation does not constitute an endorsement by ASBMR of the product, assay or information contained herein. No responsibility is assumed, and responsibility is hereby disclaimed, by the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research for any injury and/or damage to persons or property as a matter of products liability, negligence or otherwise, or from any use or operation of methods, products, instructions or ideas presented in the abstracts. Independent verification of diagnosis and drug dosages should be made. Discussions, views and recommendations as to medical procedures, choice of drugs and drug dosages are the responsibilities of the authors.
    • Translations: Note: the translated version of JBMR material must also carry a disclaimer in English and in the language of the translation: The American Society for Bone and Mineral Research takes no responsibility for the accuracy of the translation from the published English original and is not liable for any errors which may occur. No responsibility is assumed, and responsibility is hereby disclaimed, by the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research for any injury and/or damage to persons or property as a matter of products liability, negligence or otherwise, or from any use or operation of methods, products, instructions or ideas presented in the Journal . Independent verification of diagnosis and drug dosages should be made. Discussions, views, and recommendations as to medical procedures, choice of drugs and drug dosages are the responsibility of the authors. The two versions (English and other language) of the disclaimer must appear on the inside front cover or at the beginning of the translated material.

    Because the ASBMR must protect itself from the appearance of prejudice toward or against any diagnostic test, therapeutic product, company or editorial position, all permission requests are carefully reviewed and in some cases permission may be withheld. The ASBMR may in particular refuse permission for reproduction of images or material closely associated with the ASBMR/JBMR (example: J Bone Miner Res 1986; 15-21, Dempster et al., Figure 5), if such reproduction is deemed inappropriate, non-scientific, or too closely associated with another organization or entity. In addition, the ASBMR may request that such images be reproduced with the ASBMR logo embedded in the image or material or directly beside the image, text or other material.
