Elsevier's Heirs, or, Yes, Copyright IS Confusing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Even when we understand the stakes, many of us still find publication agreements and copyright in general to be a mystery. While Elsevier’s new article-sharing policy represents the latest high-profile attempt to change the ecosystem for scholarly sharing, agreements from many publishers impact open access and library practice. Is Creative Commons the simple answer it seems to be? Or do the CC licenses add their own layers of complexity ? This session will introduce the most commonly-encountered stumbling blocks and latest trends, as well as offering a hands-on look at real contracts that need some fixing up.

Join us for a conversation about publishing, copyright, and open access grounded . How are your colleagues reacting to changes in practice? What can librarians do to educate scholars - including librarians publishing our own work and supporting library publishing - about these issues? Who has the time to keep up with all this stuff?

Led by an attorney at a large STEM-based institution. a scholarly communication librarian at a smaller private university, and an open access researcher / activist at an ARL institution, discussion will both challenge the audience and follow audience interest to address questions and share experiences. Whether you’re publishing your own work, supporting someone who is, or just want to know what all those weird Latin phrases mean, this lunch promises to be a great chance to learn more about the environment so you can chart your own course.
