Author Agreements: What You Need to Know Before and After You Publish

This is a past event.

Are you an author? Would you like a better understanding of the author agreements you sign with publishers? During this workshop, we will review typical author agreements, explaining the standard language found in them and pointing out potential red flags. We will also explore the Creative Commons licensing mechanism, the legal tool often used to make your work open access.

This workshop is part of the UAB Libraries’ Office of Scholarly Communication webinar series. Next workshop in the series:
