Negotiating Your Copyrights In-Person

You’ve written up your research and had it accepted for publication! Most of us are so happy, we just sign the form without thinking about the implications. Before you sign a publication agreement, however, it’s important to consider what the agreement does to your intellectual property. Will you have to sign over copyright to the publisher? Or give permission to publish? Will you retain the right to share the work elsewhere, such as in your classes or a pre-print archive? All of this depends on the agreement you negotiate and sign. This semester we’re offering our first workshop on negotiating your rights when it comes to publication. 

Copyright decisions are ultimately your choice and there are many factors to consider. In this workshop, we’ll discuss some of the language you’re likely to see in your agreement, how it aligns with your goals, and offer strategies to negotiate the agreement to better fit your needs. Participants are encouraged to bring a publication agreement with them to analyze, but it is not required.  This workshop will be led by Assistant Dean for Research and Education Services Kelly Broughton.

Ohio University Libraries are committed to providing programs and services that are accessible to all participating individuals. If you would like to request an accommodation for this event, please contact Jennifer Harvey at 740-593-2906 or harveyj1@ohio.edu.
