Bodleian iSkills: Authors, copyright and open access – making it work for you (Wednesday 24 August 12.00-13.00)
Authors are often unsure what rights they retain when signing the publisher agreement for a journal article. Your choices affect what you and others can do with your work. This introductory workshop deciphers the jargon and explains the pitfalls so you can understand your options and make informed decisions.
It covers benefits of retaining copyright, Copyright Transfer Agreements (CTA) compared with other Licence types (inc. Creative Commons), author rights and sharing permissions, subscription and open access articles, uploading to the web or repositories, University and funder policies (inc. REF), and the support available.
Participants are asked to bring along an example of a publisher copyright agreement that they have signed in the past or from a journal they publish in regularly. There will be time for Q and A but if you wish to send questions in advance please email using subject line: August Copyright session.
Who is this session for: Academics, researchers, postgraduate research students
Presenters: Sarah Barkla, Kate Beeby, Juliet Ralph, Sally Rumsey
Venue: Seminar Rm A, Manor Road Building
