Many of you have just published something or are about to publish. Do you know your rights as an author?

One of the best introductions to this subject is “Author’s Rights, Tout de Suite,” by Charles W. Bailey, Jr. http://www.digital-scholarship.org/ts/authorrights.pdf

As an author, you should protect your right to archive your work (especially the .pdf of the published paper). Self-archiving can be done on a personal or departmental web page, or in an institutional repository like OSU's Scholars Archive
( http://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/ ).

Things to consider:
● Protect your right to archive a .pdf file of your paper when you sign your copyright transfer agreement (more on this next time)
● Save those manuscripts! Some publishers will only allow you to archive a pre-print( manuscript submitted before peer review) or a post-print (a manuscript revised after peer review but before final publication). We'd rather archive the publisher's .pdf, but would be glad to have the manuscripts, especially the post-prints.

This report describes the differences between the rights authors think they have, the rights they want to have, and the rights publishers are willing to grant them. Morris, Sally. "Journal authors’ rights: perception and reality." (2009) (Publishing Research Consortium. PRC Summary Paper no.5) http://www.publishingresearch.net/documents/JournalAuthorsRights.pdf
Another reader-friendly summary of your rights as an author is found in an article by Heather Leary and Preston Parker, “Academic Author Rights: Knowing is More Than Half the Battle.” Tech Trends v.54 no.3, p.23-25 (May/June, 2010) (can be accessed online through the OSU catalog).

There are a lot of good reasons to archive your works. You’re proud of them; you want them to be permanently available. You may want others to be able to access your writings free of charge. Or perhaps you know that open-access works tend to be cited more often, and can have higher “impact factors.” Whatever your reasons, you decide that you want to archive.

The moment of truth is when you sign the copyright transfer agreement with the publisher.

If your publisher doesn’t usually let its authors do what you want to do, you can ask the publisher to allow you to modify the copyright agreement. The OSU Libraries encourage authors to use the SPARC Author Addendum to Publication Agreement, which supports archiving in non-commercial repositories and permits subsequent non-commercial use of the work.
