Our Copyright Policy

HomeAbout UsOur Copyright Policy

Our main concern is to afford a measure of protection to our production and editorial staff by publishing as a part of the Eric Voegelin Society. VoegelinView staff members acting on behalf of the Eric Voegelin Society, either as employees or agents, are protected against libel or other claims.

Since VoegelinView does not pay royalties to its contributors, it does not claim ownership of original submission and publication. Contributors who prepare original content and copyright it themselves may request us to add to top of their article an indication of copyright along with the author’s name. Current U.S. copyright law does not require the inclusion of these traditional words or abbreviations to protect intellectual property.

What happens if you publish your work at VoegelinView and then wish to republish it elsewhere? VoegelinView gives blanket permission to all authors to republish their work elsewhere. If your publisher refuses to publish material previously published by VoegelinView, VoegelinView will remove your work at your request.

VoegelinView wishes to attract capable scholars and writers who wish to explore their ideas in a friendly, online environment. If subsequently you publish your work elsewhere, it might be appropriate to add an attribution indicating that it was originally published by VoegelinView.

VoegelinView’s policy is to treat your writings as you wish to have them treated. By default we will not claim specific copyright for any work published by VoegelinView, but only display this general language in the footer: Contents Copyright © The Eric Voegelin Society.
