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.
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.
Our primary publishing area is STM (scientific, technical and medical), in the broadest sense of the term. As well as educating health and education professionals, our books aim to apply "science" to everyday life, particularly in terms of health prevention and health management, both physical and mental.
