Join Sarah Wipperman, Scholarly Communication Librarian, on Friday, Mar. 12, from 11 a.m.–12:30 p.m. for a workshop entitled “Understanding and Negotiating Publisher Contracts: What to Look for Before You Sign.” You wrote an article, and it was accepted! The publisher sends you a publishing agreement to sign, but what does that agreement actually say? What rights are you giving away, and what rights do you retain? Can you post your article to your website? Can you use it in the classroom? Can you send it to colleagues?
This workshop will look at a variety of agreements across different disciplines; give you tools to understand general journal policies on when and how you can post articles; show you ways that you can negotiate with publishers to retain more rights to your work; and discuss ways that you can share your work more widely.
This event, sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, is free and open to the Villanova community.
Once registered, you will be sent a Zoom link to the event
