Right(s) place at the right(s) time: author rights in academic publishing – Webinar on 27 March

Date and time: Mon, 27 March 2023, 14:00 – 15:30 BST
Location: Online

You’ve done the hard work, you’ve written up your findings, you’ve submitted to your journal of choice…and the paper is accepted (hurrah!). What happens next? For many researchers, it’s a bit of a mystery – after all, you’re going to be published, so who cares, right?.

Often, though, signing a contract with a publisher might mean you’re signing away the rights to your work. There’s been a lot of discussion recently about what this means for the research landscape, for academic publishing, for institutions, and most importantly, what this means for you, the author. How does this relate to Open Access, or funder mandates, or the REF?

The Library’s Open Research Seminar series continues with this webinar where colleagues from Cambridge and Sussex will unpick these questions and discuss a variety of approaches to Rights Retention: why it matters, how it works, and what you can do to ensure that you have control over your published work.
