Stop signing away your (intellectual) rights!: How the Open Access Policy can help you.

Stop signing away your (intellectual) rights!: How the Open Access Policy can help you.

You got a grant from the University, researched and wrote an article and have a publisher interested. But they want you to give away your copyright when they publish it. You'll need their permission to reprint your own work! And then they'll sell it back to the University that paid for some of the work in the first place! Seem unfair? We think so. Come and hear how a policy that's already in place at UMass can help break this cycle. Learn ways to retain the rights to your work while still contributing your scholarship via valid academic publishing vehicles.
