Search by ISBN or ISSN
Make sure the 13-digit ISBN you are using doesn’t have any hyphens or spaces.
Looking for online content?
Search for the top-level URL (website address) of the publication rather than the page the article is located on.
For example, search for www.PLSclear.com rather than www.PLSclear.com/publishers, and don’t include the http:// part of the address, just from the www.
Looking for a journal or magazine article?
Search for the title or ISSN of the journal in which the article is published.

How PLSclear works
Not sure if you’re ready to request permission?
There is certain information that you will need to know about the content you want to use and the project you want to use it in.
Not only will it help the publisher when they are reviewing your request, but if your request is successful, it will also appear on your licence, so the information needs to be correct.

Pippa Watts, Scholastic Ltd.
Our experience with PLSclear has been very positive and I can only recommend it to other publishers. The entire process is incredibly easy and streamlines the granting of permissions immensely (from the receipt of the request to the invoicing), which allows you to deal with them more efficiently in a timely manner.
