Copyright

copyright_symbolCopyright laws guard our rights to use existing materials but also protect the creations of artists or scholars from certain misuses.

Carefully examine the pricing, copyright, and subscription licensing agreements of any journal you contribute to as an author, reviewer, or editor. Where possible, publish in open-access journals with funding models that do not charge readers or their institutions for access. Serve on editorial boards or review manuscripts for open-access journals.

Modify, if appropriate, any contract you sign with a publisher to ensure your right to use your work, including posting on a public archive. See the Scholar’s Copyright Addendum Engine for examples.

Use a Creative Commons license to mark your work with the freedoms you want it to carry.
