When you publish a journal article, you sign a copyright agreement. Do you know what you’re agreeing to when you sign it?
In the US copyright covers a bundle of intellectual property rights. In this workshop we will discuss what copyright is, what it allows you to do, and how to maintain your rights as an author.
By the end of this workshop you will be able to answer:
- What is a copyright transfer agreement?
- How can you find out a journal's rights policies?
- How can you negotiate contracts to make the most of your rights as a scholar, researcher, and author?
- What are the benefits of protecting your rights?
This workshop can be modified to match the particulars of the campus where it is being presented.
