Authors’ Rights: What to Know Before You Submit to a Journal, or Sign Its Contract

November 4, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Scholarly Communication Workshop Series logo

When you publish a journal article, you sign a copyright agreement. Do you know what you’re agreeing to when you sign it?

Different journals have different policies: Some journals require you to relinquish your copyright. (You then have to ask permission or even pay to share your article with students and colleagues!) Some journals allow you to retain some rights (e.g., the right to post online). Some journals leave copyright in your hands. (You simply give the journal a non-exclusive license to publish the article.)

How can you find out a journal’s policy? How can you negotiate your contract to make the most of your rights as a scholar, researcher, and author? Come learn how to preserve your rights to reproduce, distribute, and display the work you create.
