In our newest “how can we help you?” thread, a reader asks:
Is there a norm on how much of a book chapter contribution to an edited volume can overlap with material published (or to be published) by a journal? I feel like philosophers often “recycle” their own writings but I wonder if there are expectations or norms or even recommendations about this!
Good question. I know that some publishers have explicit requirements on what they allow, and that it may differ according to the publisher. But, beyond this, I’m not sure what the norms are. My sense is that some authors do repeatedly recycle previously published ideas, but I’m not at all sure what is considered good practice here.
Anyone have any tips or insights?
