IGI Global publications are published in English and distributed
throughout the world. Many of our high-quality publications have
been translated into other languages. It is IGI Global's practice to
work with established foreign publishers who wish to translate,
publish, and sell a published IGI Global title.
In order to simplify the project for its foreign counterparts, the IGI
Global Translation Rights contract proposes a simple fee structure
based on a one-time upfront license fee that is valid for 5
years and not dependent on the foreign publisher tracking and
reporting royalties to IGI Global.
You are encouraged to view the IGI Global website featuring detailed
information on each publication, or review the latest IGI
Global book catalog at www.igi-global.com/books/bookinformation/catalogs.aspx
. Please contact Jan Travers, Director
of Intellectual Property and Contracts at jtravers@igi-global
com for more information.
For Translators, because IGI Global only deals with foreign publishers
who wish to translate, print, and sell our publications, it is
recommended that you identify publishers in your region that
publish in the areas of information science and technology research
and submit a proposal to that publisher to be the lead
translator on the project.
The organization responsible for overseeing the publication process
should complete the IGI Global Translation Rights Request
form and return to IGI Global. IGI Global does not work directly
For your convenience, the IGI Global website (www.igi-global.com
offers a preview of each chapter of the book, as well as the preface
and table of contents!
