SARS Reference is a medical textbook that provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of severe acute repiratory syndrome.

Under certain conditions, the editors and the authors of SARS Reference agree to remove the copyright on their book for all languages except English and German. You could therefore translate the content of SARSReference.com into any language except German and publish it under your own name. This policy is in accordance with the Amedeo Free Book Initiative.

To benefit from this offer, you have to comply with the following conditions:

  1. Reproduction of the content of this site is not permitted in English or in German.

  2. You may apply for translation into no more than two languages.

  3. You may publish the translation under your own name. However, the main page of the publication - be it the home page of a Web site or a book cover - must mention the source of the information in this way:

      Adapted from
      by Kamps-Hoffmann et al.

    On a book cover, the size of the acknowledgement must be half the size of the publishing authors' name. On Internet pages, the font size has to be 2. In both cases www.SARSReference.com has to be bold face.

    In addition, the authors of the individual chapters have to be mentioned at the beginning of every single chapter.

  4. The translation into any other language must reproduce the original documents faithfully. However, if national treatment guidelines, drug approval conditions or treatment-related issues specific to your country differ from what is recommended or described in SARS Reference, you must add a note to point out that difference.

  5. Neither the Publisher nor the editors of SARS Reference assume any responsibility for the quality of your translation or for possible injuries and/or damages to persons or property caused by the use of your translation.

  6. Pay the greatest attention when translating crucial information such as dosage, dosage schedules, therapeutic regimens, drug descriptions, etc. Before publishing the translation of SARS Reference, include a disclaimer statement.

  7. Translating the text into any language does not confer you any exclusive rights for that given language. If other working groups wish to translate SARS Reference into the same language as you do, we encourage them to do so.

  8. Under no circumstances, may a translated version be re-translated into English or German (see above).

  9. Please note, that when submitting your data, you may indicate that you wish to be put in contact with other people who intend to translate SARS Reference into the same language as you do.
