Author Rights

When you're ready to publish, be careful not to sign away your author rights. Options are available to help you keep your rights as authors:

  • Understanding the journal's policies on self-archiving which can enable you to provide an open access version of your work
  • Publishing with journals which have progressive copyright, access, and archiving policies. See RoMEO site for a directory of publishers' policies
  • Publishing in scholarly open-access journal publications. Select from the thousands of journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals
