Publishing: Navigating the Confusing World of Copyright, Authors’ Rights, and Open Access

As part of International Open Access Week, the University of Delaware Library is hosting the workshop “Publishing: Navigating the Confusing World of Copyright, Authors’ Rights and Open Access.” This workshop is ideal for any scholars that are actively publishing, or would like to publish, but want to know their rights as authors. The workshop will be led by University of Delaware Press director Julia Oestreich, so you will receive guidance from an experienced publishing professional about:

  • Copyright and Authors’ Rights: the difference between copyright and owning rights to your own scholarship; the permissions process for using images and previously published material in your work, and how to assert fair use in pursuing those permissions
  • Open Access: different kinds of open access; the pros and cons of publishing open access, including impact factor, effects on career advancement, and publisher embargoes.

While workshops are free of charge, registration is required as seating is limited.
