Negotiate your copyright

Negotiate for a balanced copyright. Publishers of scientific journals want authors to sign a copyright transfer agreement or licence before an article, book chapter or book is published. Every publishing house will use its own standard contract, and so the rights you retain will inevitably vary.
TU Delft Library can advise you and help you negotiate your copyright in order to retain the most important rights as:
• the right to reuse an article to be included in a book;
• the right to reuse your bookchapter or complete book for educational purposes;
• the right to rewrite and adapt an article;
• the right to distribute the article among colleagues;
• the right to copy your article for teaching purposes;
• the right to file the (full text of the) article in a repository.
