Permissions for adapted/modified figures, etc.

LWW, the publishing partner of the NSCA, has instituted a new policy regarding the use of copyrighted materials in SCJ. Typically, in SCJ, this is an issue when authors use a table or figure from a previously published source. Permissions will be required to be transmitted to LWW prior to publication. THIS INCLUDES ADAPTED/MODIFIED FIGURES! This process is in place to protect the authors, the journal, the NSCA and LWW.
