Open-access licences

Authors have to manage the rights of their publications by carefully reading the contracts they sign with the publishers, particularly with regards to copyright, the possibility of open-access publishing, embargo periods, etc.

If an agreement is reached with the publishers, authors may be able to keep some specific rights on their scientific output (addenda).

Articles, books, etc.

These licences were developed by Creative Commons (a non-governmental, non-profit organisation that aims to reduce legal barriers to creativity, by introducing new legislation and using new technologies). They cover a wide range of circumstances, from the traditional system of copyright to full public domain.
