Requesting permission for ED-UK titles:

Requests to use content from an Academic or ED-UK Oxford University Press book are handled by PLSclear - please submit requests here. We recommend searching by ISBN to ensure you get the most accurate search result.

Also, before submitting your request please ensure that you have checked the credit line accompanying the material, the Copyright page and/or the Acknowledgements pages. Although Oxford may have published the book from which you want to reproduce material, we may not be the copyright holder of the material you wish to use. This will especially be the case if the requested material is part of an anthology or collected work (e.g. Oxford Book of...).

Please do not send duplicate requests.

Applying for a license to perform an OUP Oxford Playscripts play

If you are considering applying for a license to perform a play from the Oxford Playscripts series, please submit requests via PLSclear. No performance may be made unless a license has been obtained and no alterations may be made on the titles or the text of the play without the author's prior written consent.

Please note that we do not manage the performance rights for all of the plays in the Oxford Playscripts series. The relevant information and contact details can be found on the imprint page of every Oxford Playscripts play. If you cannot locate this information or if you are in any doubt about who to contact regarding a performance licence, please email the OUP permissions department (

When you apply for a performance license, please allow at least 2 months before the performances are planned to take place, and allow for at least four weeks for a reply. We will endeavour to reply to you as swiftly as possible.
