Flinn Scientific is able to grant use permission for select Flinn publications and content through a special copyright license agreement.
Posting on a Website. If a teacher has purchased a Flinn Scientific kit or book, we can issue a special license agreement that would allow for PDFs of specified student pages only to be posted by a teacher on a password-protected school website. After purchase is verified and the license agreement is processed and complete, Flinn will sends the teacher special PDFs of the student pages to be used on the website. The license agreement will require that the PDFs are only reproduced in their entirety and only for that teacher's students. Please fill out the form below to request this type of permission.

Please note: Flinn Scientific cannot endorse any modifications to our publications. If you find it necessary to clarify or add specific instructions for your students, then the procedure we recommend you follow is to reproduce our copyrighted publication and then append a separate document with your specifications. If you wish to make further changes, then we recommend that you rewrite the activity using the Flinn write-up as a model and then cite the Flinn publication at the end as a reference. These restrictions are required for two reasons—to protect Flinn intellectual property and to restrict potential liability to published, copyrighted procedures and safety precautions as tested and written. Flinn Scientific cannot endorse any modifications. We take copyright permissions and plagiarism very seriously, and when there is an instance of copyright infringement, we immediately seek to resolve the issue.
