All fiction contributions to Galaxy that could be cleared with Rule 6 are posted to Project Gutenberg.

Galaxy, also known as Galaxy Magazine and Galaxy Science Fiction. (ISFDB list.)

For holdings by DP users, see pulp holdings#Galaxy. There are no known full-issue renewal listings for Galaxy; if there were, they would be listed under each issue.

To see the original unformatted dump of "galaxy" "galaxy magazine" and "galaxy science fiction" (which should not be trusted for completeness), see this archive page.

This page is incomplete; feel free to add copyright clearance request numbers, notes that a work has been cleared, copyright renewals numbers (RE-whatever), or anything else. Please keep the format consistent. I'm currently listing only short stories, novellas and novelettes. The magazine contained interior artwork, essays, and book reviews as well, which aren't listed here.

This page is intended to be useful as a jumping-off point. It is not a substitute for doing the searches yourself, but is only intended to save time by showing that certain works certainly were renewed, or were written by non-American authors. Please also be sure to avoid duplicating effort by checking the in-progress list for anything you're thinking of working on, and note that a work is in progress if you find it there.
