Who Owns Your Scholarship - And Why It Matters
Category: Research Workshops
Copyright agreements are a part of the publication process that many scholars struggle to understand, but the terms of those contracts can limit how many people see your work, make it difficult to comply with mandates from your funding agencies, and cost you a fair share of your royalties. Join Will Cross, an attorney in the Copyright and Digital Scholarship Center, for a discussion about what those contracts say and what you can do to make sure you have the rights you need as a scholarly author. Sometimes the most important writing you do is in your contract.
