Additional Information for some University of California Press journals

Publication Dates Prior to 1964: Public Domain in Select Titles

For many of our journals, articles published before 1964 are in the public domain and may be copied or reprinted without permission from UC Press. These journals include: Asian Survey, Film Quarterly (formerly Quarterly of Film, Radio and Television and Hollywood Quarterly), Journal of the American Musicological Society (formerly Bulletin of the American Musicological Society), and Nineteenth-Century Literature (formerly Nineteenth-Century Fiction and The Trollopian). Pre-1964 content within these titles may be copied and reprinted without permission. Please be sure, however, to reference the original citation in conjunction with republication.

Additionally, rights for Volumes 1-9 of Historical Studies in the Physical and Biological Sciences are handled by UC Berkeley’s Office for History of Science and Technology.
