Please contact the Archivist for permission to study and/or publish material held in the BSA Archive, or to reproduce images from BSA publications. Reproduction fees apply to the use of any BSA Archive material in a new publication: these are only occasionally waived. The Archivist will advise you of costs attached to your particular request. If you want to make reproductions of the material, or for the School to organise this on your behalf, please indicate this in your application.
To study and/or publish material in the BSA Museum and Sherd Collection, download and complete the application form below and forward it to the Assistant Director.
To study and/or publish material held at the Stratigraphical Museum at Knossos, download and complete the application form below and forward it to the Knossos Curator.
Applications to study and/or publish any BSA material should include complete references to the material concerned, plus copies of any illustrations, and indicate the reason for the study (if as part of doctoral research, please indicate the title of your thesis, supervisor's name, and institution). If publication rights to the material have been assigned, the School will require written permission from the scholar concerned in order for the study to proceed. Applications for publication or for reproduction of published images should include in addition full information on the mode of publication: thesis, monograph, article, or electronic article, name of book or journal, publisher, print run, and any other relevant information.
Requests to publish unpublished BSA archaeological material or to republish BSA archaeological material should be addressed to the School Administrator, following the instructions supplied for Individual Study Permits. When an application is approved, the School will issue a letter of permission which should then accompany a formal permit request to the appropriate Greek authorities.
Please note that:
-the School's letter is not in itself a study permit and should not be presented directly at a site or museum;
- with the exception of ongoing study following recent field projects, study permissions for BSAarchaeological material are valid for 5 years. Reapplication may be made for continuing work thereafter, accompanied by an account of progress towards publication.
