These are the categories of publisher that are relevant to 'AAPS Open'.
In general, the lowest category in the list below takes priority regarding copyright and policies. This is not clear and certain, however, for 'Client organisations' and 'Associate organisations'.
|Definition:||Society or organisation that assists a publishing house with editing and peer review, but which may not have copyright|
|Case/E.g.:||Publishing house declarations: 'Published in association with...', 'Edited by...'|
|Guidance:||Ownership of copyright by the associate organisation is possible, but less likely than for a client organisation.|
|Definition:||Subsidiary of a publishing house, with a different name, and possibly different rights|
|Case/E.g.:||Routledge, which is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, which in turn is an imprint of Informa|
|Guidance:||See also 'Sub-imprint' (which may be more suitable for societies) and 'Former imprint'.|
