Retaining Your Rights as an Author

When a work is published, you may give up your rights to the copying and distribution of your own work.

Author Rights Agreements & Addenda

Author publication agreements may be submitted to your publisher in order to retain rights to make copies of your article or other scholarly/intellectual work (e.g., to use in your courses, on your own web site, and the College's website). For a brief video introduction to this practice, watch here, or take a look at our guide to Retaining Your Rights As An Author.
