Do I need permission of people if I have photographed them to illustrate my article?

Generally, yes: you will need to warrant to us that any person – a patient, service user, or participant (or that person’s parent or legal guardian) in any research or clinical experiment or study who is described in your article has given written consent to the inclusion of material, text, or image, pertaining to themselves, and that they acknowledge that they cannot be identified via the article and that you have anonymized them and that you do not identify them in any way, unless with their permission. Images of people taken at public events may not require formal permission, assuming photography was explicitly permitted.
