Description

When you publish, you will be required to sign some sort of publishing agreement, but what does that agreement actually say? What rights are you giving away, and what rights do you retain? Can you post your article to your website? Can you use it in the classroom? Can you send it to colleagues?

This workshop will feature Eric Halpern, Director of Penn Press, who will discuss the main clauses of a book publishing contract, and Sarah Wipperman, Scholarly Communication & Digital Repository Librarian, who will discuss journal agreements, retaining your rights, and ways you can share your work.
