Open Access and Copyright

Application/Processing Fee: 

No article or processing submission charges apply.

Agreement for Publication and Sharing of Rights: 

The Author should retain the copyright in the Article and have explicit rights to use the Article in future research, teaching, and other projects. The Journal, as publisher, should have rights to publish the Article in various formats and to license the publication of the Article through third-party database providers. This Agreement is based on the assumption that the Author is in fact the copyright owner.

The Agreement permits broad open access of the Article as the parties desire. The Agreement also permits the Journal to publish the Article in print and online without restrictions on access, and the Author may post the Article for Internet access and contribute it to an institutional or discipline-based repository.

The Agreement permits the Journal to publish the Article with a Creative Commons license. The use of such a license indicates to readers that they may make appropriate uses of the Article in their own study, teaching, or other activities. For example, the “Attribution, Non-Commercial, No Derivatives” license would permit an instructor at a nonprofit college to make copies of the article and share them with students, in paper or electronically. Uses that involve commercial purposes or that require any revision of the Article would require permission if not within fair use or other copyright exception. The copyright owner (initially the author), would be the appropriate party to contact for that permission.

Any of the foregoing permitted uses of the Article, or of a work based substantially on the Article, shall include an appropriate citation to the Article, stating that it has been published in the Journal, with name and date of the Journal publication and the Internet address for the website of the Journal.

*Most of the language in this “Agreement for Publication and Sharing of Rights” was prepared at Columbia University by the Center for Digital Research and Scholarship and the Copyright Advisory Office.
