Procedures to Reprint Information from the eNCPT
All of the information found in the electronic Nutrition Care Process Terminology is copyrighted to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Copyright is a legal device that provides the owner the right to control how a creative work is used. A copyright is comprised of a number of exclusive rights, including the right to make copies, authorize others to make copies, make derivative works, sell and market the work and perform the work. Any one of these rights can be sold separately through transfers of copyright ownership.

Permission is a license granting an author and his/her publisher certain nonexclusive rights to the material/content concerned. Typically, publishers will require that authors seek permission for content they have used in their works. What is being licensed in a permissions agreement is the re-use of copyrighted expression, not the ideas or data concerned.

Permission must be obtained for any re-use of copyrighted material that appears in the eNCPT. A fee may apply for granting a reprint permission of NCP/NCPT content. Certain users always require permission. These included (but are not limited to):
  • Inclusion of any substantial portion of work (i.e., one or more chapters of a book) for a college course (known as “coursepack”).
  • Re-use of a table, box, or figure from the eNCPT in another work.
  • Adapting a table, box, or figure from the eNCPT for use in another work.

  1. All requests must be submitted in writing to the office by completing a Reprint Permissions Application (pdf).
  2. Permission will be either granted or denied within 10 business days
