Martin Borchert from QUT will explore the world of publisher agreements. He will cover what agreements usually ask for and permit. He will discuss what is required – a licence to publish. He will explore alternative copyright options including CC and copyright addenda. He will explain what Creative Commons and why you should consider it.
Martin will discuss that authors can do about negotiating alternatives with publishers, and how successful this approach is. He will also discuss Crown Copyright – who is eligible and how it can assist Open Access. Could this be a model for Australian institutions to band together and fix open Access?
