Copyright and Permissions

Copyright to the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics is held by the Society of Christian Ethics. Permissions are managed on the SCE's behalf by the Philosophy Documentation Center.

  • Authors are free to reuse their own articles in any other publications they write or edit - no further permission is required. SCE only requires acknowledgement of the original publication in the JSCE.
  • Faculty may use JSCE articles in course packs or electronic reserves - no further permission is required. Please include "Used by permission of the SCE, [date]" on the first page of the article, and notify SCE ([email protected]) which article was used and the name and level of the course.
  • Members, subscribers and authorized users may make up to 100 print copies of single articles for any personal, instructional, or non-commercial purpose - no further permission is required.

Permission is required to make more than 100 print copies, or for republication in any anthology, textbook, monograph, journal, reference work, or web site. Contact us for more information.

To grant permission we need to know what rights are being requested and which publisher will be republishing the article. This should be provided with a very brief description of the project. All permissions are non-exclusive.

The usual fee for republication in anthologies is $100 per article. A portion of any fee charged ($50) will be forwarded by SCE to the author of the article if the author’s address is known.

Open Access Archiving Policy

Authors may post a non-formatted version of their article as submitted to the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics to open access web sites. This means a version in a format that does not duplicate the look and feel of the journal (such as ASCII TXT, HTML, Word). We cannot grant permission for the use of any file format that reproduces page images from the journal (such as TIF, PDF, JPEG). Posting a non-formatted version of the paper allows authors to make their work more widely known without asking a non-profit journal to bear the cost and risk of free distribution.
