Swan & Horn's Archive and Permissions Policy


 Swan & Horn has a “green open access” policy and is committed to Open Access, to ensure that the interests of their

 authors, editors and other contributors are respected, to archive their research and other output and enhance its

 visibility. To this end, Swan & Horn permit authors of chapters, books and reports to self-archive a published (digital

 PDF) version of their work in their own academic or clinical institutional repository. There is no fee for this. However,

 as copyright for published material is held by Swan & Horn, this material cannot be printed off and/or distributed  

 freely, or reused in whole or part within other publications without explicit permission of the publisher.


 FOR permission for reuse or distribution of any of our material, contact Maria directly.

We are looking for books that address individual, organisational and social factors relating to healthcare. This includes academic and educational texts, personal narratives and self-help books.


We particularly like multidisciplinary approaches to problems, especially if they are supported by evidence and practice, and books that make topics accessible to people from one discipline to those in another, thus promoting collaboration and broadening understanding.

"We want to provoke thought about the big picture as well as the small, to educate both broadly and specifically, to offer fresh insights to a wide audience and to foster curiosity."

Maria, thank you – this is more feedback than I received from Hodder Arnold in the whole course of writing "The Honey Diet"!
