Webinar: Rights Retention and Secondary Publishing Rights
Webinar to launch EIFL’s guide on Rights Retention and Secondary Publishing Rights

Event Date: 12 Jun 2024

Join this EIFL webinar to launch a new EIFL guide on Rights Retention and Secondary Publishing Rights, powerful tools to boost the achievement of open access to research.

Authors (or in some cases, their institutions) hold copyright in the work they produce. When a research manuscript is accepted for publication, the author is deemed to have entered into an agreement with the publisher. A traditional publishing agreement often restricts the immediate sharing and reuse of the work in open access (OA) because it entails either the transfer of copyright or the assignment of rights from the author (or the institution) to the publisher. Rights Retention and a Secondary Publishing Right are two ways to address these practices in support of open access and open science.

All are welcome to the webinar. We especially encourage librarians in EIFL partner countries to attend.

Join the EIFL team to learn more: Iryna Kuchma, EIFL Open Access Programme Manager, Milica Ševkušić, EIFL Open Access Project Coordinator and Teresa Hackett, EIFL Copyright and Libraries Programme Manager.
