Summary of an article in a database
- July 11, 2008 @ 1:59amKatia says:Hello, I have this concern: can I add the summary of any article written by any author, into a database and consider it as part of the bibliographical information, without having to ask permission from that author?

A plain citation (author, title, ISBN, publisher info, etc.) without an abstract is factual information which you could include in a database without obtaining permission.
