If you want to include an image (figure, graph, table, map, etc.) in your paper keep in mind that it is most probably protected by copyright. We recommend that you always ask the copyright holder for permission. If you want to use an image you found online, the easiest way is to contact the copyright holder directly. If you found something in course literature, get in contact with the publisher: Copyright Clearance Center can be used for international publishers (see Ask for Permission below). When you cannot get a hold of the copyright owner or when you are uncertain whether you can use the image, we suggest that you find an alternative instead.
However, you can also find online materials that can be reused without asking for permission, including images.

Below you will find a template that you may use when you ask for permission. We recommend to send the request as a formal e-mail from your Chalmers account. Remember to include how and where your work is going to be published.
