SPARC Canadian Author Addendum
This is a printable form that can be submitted along with a publisher’s Copyright Transfer Agreement that requests the author retain specific rights.
“The new SPARC Canadian Author Addendum enables authors to secure a more balanced agreement by retaining select rights, such as the rights to reproduce, reuse, and publicly present the articles they publish for non-commercial purposes.”
The website lists publishers copyright policies and restrictions.
Queensland University of Technologyâ€™s OAK Law Project has developed a web-enabled database containing information about publishing agreements and publishersâ€™ open access policies and practices. It is designed to facilitate greater access to research, especially that which is publicly funded. It uses the same colour designations as SHERPA ROMEO.
