Open Access and the Research Literature: Retaining your Rights as an Author – Researcher@Library Week 2017


Researchers customarily hand over copyright in their research papers to publishers. However, the digital world offers new possibilities for authorial control in retaining, assigning and licensing copyright.  As funding agencies increase their commitment to Open Access (OA), authors need to better understand how to assert control. As part of the Researcher@Library Week 2017, this session will explore these issues in the context of the ARC’s revised OA policy and national and international developments aimed at the rapid extension of open access to the research literature.
