CC License Types Attribution Lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. Attribution Share Alike Lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial reasons, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to open source software licenses. Attribution No Derivatives Allows for redistribution, commercial and non-commercial, as long as it is passed along unchanged and in whole, with credit to you. Attribution Non-Commercial Lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms. Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike Lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. Others can download and redistribute your work just like the by-nc-nd license, but they can also translate, make remixes, and produce new stories based on your work. All new work based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also be non-commercial in nature. Attribution Non-Commercial No Derivatives Allows others to download your works and share them with others as long as they mention you and link back to you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.

Digital Repositories Subject Repositories (Preprint Archives) Mostly Scholarly Articles Contain manuscripts of completed, unpublished articles Assume items are peer reviewed after submission Institutional Repositories = Digital Repositories Scholarly Articles: Journals, Books Other creative output: audio, video, data, paper reports Archival office and non-scholarly output: Newsletters, Reports, Office Files
Subject Repositories arXiv.org Physics, Mathematics rePEc Economics E-LISLibrary and Information Science Dlist Information Science PhilSci Philosophy of Science CogPrints Psychology PubMedCentral Health, Nursing, Biology Elsevier Preprint ArchivesComputer Science, Chemistry, Math Nature Precedings All areas of science
Retaining Copyright – Author Addenda Did you know signing a standard copyright transfer form for publishing journal articles limits your ability to Post published article on personal or campus websites Post pre-publications of article on personal or campus websites Deposit the article in a open access digital repository Make print or electronic copies for interlibrary loan, reserves, and e-reserves An Author Addendum agreement permits additional publishing posting, and archiving rights to supplement a copyright transfer form.
