Legal aspects of open access in scholarly publishing

Speaker: Dr. Lucie Guibault, Assistant Professor of copyright and intellectual property law at the Institute for Information Law of the University of Amsterdam

Topic discussed: "Even if researchers are in a position to exercise the copyrights on their works, they may, nevertheless, be required to transfer these to a publisher in order to get their article or book published. This presentation, therefore, discusses the legal position of researchers, research institutions and publishers respectively, and explains how Open Access publishing can be promoted for example through the use of Creative Commons licenses."

How to legally enlarge the international visibility and accessibility of your scientific output

Speaker: Saskia Woutersen-Windhouwer, Specialist Electronic Publishing / Repository Manager, Library of the University of Amsterdam

Topic discussed: Open Access can enlarge the international visibility and accessibility of your scientific output. We will discuss the two primary ways of open access publishing of your scientific works: (1) freely accessible on the website of an official publisher, and (2) archiving in repositories like UvA-DARE or SSRN. We will also present strategies to retain your copyrights, and discuss the possibilities of open access publishing when an author has already given away his/her copyrights.
