Editorial and Copyright Policy


Editorial Policy

Each document on the website includes an abstract to provide summary information and as a useful way to identify relevant materials. Abstracts have been taken from a number of sources: from the article itself, via a third party source or summarised by the CMRN team. The CMRN has sought to attribute each abstract to its correct source. CMRN has also tried to obtain permissions to use abstracts taken from third parties and directly from articles/reports. Where CMRN has not been able to gain permissions for the use of every abstract it is using, it hopes that authors and third parties will be accepting. If you wish to contact the CMRN team about permissions, please use the email link below.   If you notice any information is incorrect or if you wish to contact the CMRN team about permissions, please use the email link below.

Web links to resources: Where possible the database provides a direct link to the resource if it is available on the internet.  Click on the ‘link to resource' in the right hand column next to the entry, if it is available. These links often change, so if you notice a broken link please get in contact with us and we'll try to correct it.
