NOTICE

Under the terms of the U.S. copyright law effective January 1, 1978, and the copyright laws of many other countries, journal publishers are required to obtain written confirmation from authors to acquire copyright rights for articles published in their journals. We therefore ask you to sign and return the applicable section of the form accompanying this notice.

If you and your co-authors, if any, own rights in your articles as individuals, please sign below individually after Section A. If you work for a corporation that owns the rights in the article, please have an authorized officer of the corporation sign below after Section B.

No manuscript will be processed until this form has been returned.

If your manuscript is not published within a reasonable period of time after acceptance, upon written request, West will promptly return the rights to the manuscript to the author(s).
