Review and physical distribution – The right to update the article – Add it to a book below – Edit it for a later review 10. Why do I have to compensate the Journal and SAGE? It is standard for all SAGE contributors to make certain guarantees for the Journal and the SAGE edition. This is simply because, as the author of the article, you are the only person who can assure us of the information mentioned in the guarantees, including that the article we publish is your own work and does not violate the rights of others. We have ensured that guarantees are limited to statements that are reasonably under your control as an author. What is not in this agreement? Any statement that the author retains the copyright to his contribution or that he is able to store his works in an institutional or personal repository. I have put here a pdf of the full agreement, with obscured details, if you have never seen one and you are curious. And if I miss something even more horrible, let me know. 2. Why does SAGE need an exclusive licensing agreement? We strive to make your contribution to as wide an audience as possible. An exclusive license helps us ensure adequate protection against copyright infringement by copyright infringement or piracy worldwide. It also ensures that third-party requests to reprint or reproduce a contribution or part of it in any format are dealt with effectively, in accordance with a general policy that promotes the dissemination of knowledge within the framework of copyright. SAGE requires the author, as the rights holder, to sign a Journal Contributor`s Publishing Agreement for all articles we publish.
The SAGE Journal Contributor publication contract is a licensing agreement under which the author retains copyright in the work, but gives SAGE exclusive and exclusive rights and publication license for the full legal duration of the copyright. Exceptions may exist where the assignment of copyright is required or preferred by a licensee other than SAGE. In this case, the copyright to the work is transferred by the author to the company. Martin Paul Eve asks Taylor and Francis to leave him the most user-friendly chord instead of the standard boiler. They`ve already hidden this option in their arsenal, so I guess it`s going to be okay. Thank you, everybody. These are useful proposals. Well, if I hadn`t already had an email to my editors, I could have met all the answers by mistake! But really, it helps me to work through my answer.
My initial propensity to do what Kathleen did – including the CIC agreement as a replacement annex – was momentary in trying to find out whether this would put an end to the abandonment of my moral rights as an author, which I mention in my last point above. Jeffrey Pomerantz wrote at length about his engagement to Taylor and Francis for a better deal for a magazine article he co-wrote. After many round trips, the license is offered for publication instead of the copyright agreement, but it still contains an 18-month embargo before a post-paper version can be published. In the end, they remove their article from the magazine and publish it openly as Google Doc. Here is my question, dear readers: how should I proceed? I don`t want to sign this. Ideally, what I want is an agreement that allows me to publish my contribution on my own repository (aka, this site) and reuse my own material in every collection of my own writing that I can compile. What can I realistically achieve? Probably this last point, perhaps a version of the first point, with some sort of pre-printing and perhaps after a certain period of embargo.
