  • The NIH Public Access Policy applies to all peer-reviewed articles that arise, in whole or in part, from direct costs 1 funded by NIH, or from NIH staff, that are accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008."] So, for grants given in the fy07/08, any article submitted and accepted before the 7th of April is not mandatory to deposit, just encouraged
  • Copyright is automatic once a work that is original and creative is fixed in a tangible medium. Copyright is a bundle of rights that can be transferred, in part or in full, from the author to a publisher.
  • WHY: WHY SHOULD FACULTY MEMBERS RETAIN THEIR RIGHTS AS AUTHORS? Authors have the opportunity to maximize their work’s potential reach and impact by minimizing barriers between their work and their potential readers. More readers, more impact. Authors can keep control of how their work is distributed and used, including future uses not yet anticipated.
