Description

Most authors sign publication contracts without reading them carefully, and consequently transfer all rights to a publisher. Is there another option? (Yes, there is!)

Join us for Did I sign my rights away? Copyright for authors on Wednesday, 10/22/14, at noon (Specialty Dining Room 19).

This session will explain copyright for authors in plain English. Hear successful strategies used by academic authors, review a typical publication contract, and learn about tools that can help you retain the rights you wish to keep while continuing to work with scholarly publishers. If you like, bring a recent publication contract that you signed.

Please RSVP to Janelle Wertzberger (jwertzbe@gettysburg.edu), as space is limited to the first 20 respondents.
