Sign Copyright Agreement

The author reserves copyright: if you, the author, have retained the copyright, it is always likely that the first journal will need an exclusive publication license, which means that you are not in a position to authorize another magazine for reissue. As a general rule, it is essential to obtain written permission from the original publisher or company to reproduce the corresponding material, if this is not specified in the agreement or license you signed for that company or company. Permission for the reissue will always be required, unless the license you have signed is clearly reserved only for non-exclusive rights. Some commercial publishers, such as Elsevier, exploit “nominal copyrights” when they require the transfer of full and exclusive rights from authors to the publishing house for OA articles, while copyright remains in the name of the authors. [38] The assumption that this practice is a precondition for publication is misleading, as even works that are publicly available can be redirected, printed and disseminated by publishers. Instead, authors can grant a simple, non-exclusive publication license that meets the same criteria. However, according to a 2013 survey by Taylor and Francis, nearly half of the researchers surveyed said they would continue to simply transfer copyright to OA articles. [39] Obtain permission to multiply the numbers/tables of an already published article: You must ensure that you have obtained permission from the copyright holder or the exclusive licensee to reproduce in the article all the material that does not belong to them and that you have provided full confirmation of the source. In most cases, the Original Edition Rights Department or the Journal`s editorial board will inform you of the exact form of the words required. This is usually a complete reference to the original publication and a confirmation that the material is reproduced with the permission of the rights holder. Wiley is the signatory of an agreement signed by the majority of scientific, technical and medical (STM) publishers that the participating publishers do not collect reciprocal royalties for copyright reproduction. These guidelines address the reuse of a small number of figures and tables of magazine articles without authorization, and a number of major STM publishers have signed up for this purpose. For more information, see the authorisation guidelines of the International Association of Publishers stm.

Therefore, critics[28] argue that copyright in scientific research is largely ineffective in its proposed use, but that it has also been wrongly acquired in many cases, and that in practice it is contrary to its fundamental purpose of protecting authors and other scientific research. Plan S requires authors and their respective institutions to retain copyrights to articles without transferring them to publishers; also supported by OA2020. [Note 4] The researchers found no evidence of the need for a transfer of copyright for publication or, in all cases, where a publishing house exercised copyright in the best interests of the authors. Although one of the publishers` arguments in favour of copyright transfer is that they allow them to defend authors against copyright infringement, [Note 5] Publishers can assume this responsibility even if copyright remains in the hands of the author, as is the policy of the Royal Society. [Note 6] Wiley magazine authors can use their article in a variety of ways, including in publications of their own work and packages of courses in their institution. The author`s reuse rights vary according to the Journal. Please refer to the copyright form you have signed or that you must sign to verify the current reuse rights.
