Questions that need answers

 

Ask bepress to include the following drop down:

If this submission was previously published in a journal, select the most appropriate statement from the dropdown list:

 ·         I have retained non-commercial copyright for my work through an agreement with the publisher

·         ·Publisher holds the copyright

ask bpress to add the template below but where ?  creating an account or when they are filling out the submission template?

Each submission for an item to be uploaded to the IR must be accompanied by a signed Consent Form: TEMPLATE For storing/accessing personal information outside Canada];  

ask bepress to add the check email like below?

Example from UVic of how to ensure email is correct and same one as previous submission:

Do we ask bpress to add to submission form or do we include the following questions in the non exclusive licence?

 

Has the work been published under a Creative Commons Licence?

Has the work been pubished in an Open Access Journal?

do we want to ask the question---Was the research funded?

 

Do we give the two options like UBC does:

              I am depositing the work myself   and use an online click thru licence

         KORA staff are depositing the work on my behalf   submit the licence thru a web form or by campus mail

 

The following need to be determined?  by us? by the submittor?

  • Which version can be submitted?   we would need to know so we can get them to submit the right version
  • Is there an embargo period?
  • Do we need to include a publisher statement?  

 

should we send the non-exclusisve licence to legaL?

do we want to talk about peer-review?  UBC has some info

do we add a question in the licnece about llowing material to be copied to another database???

what do we do about publishser  conditions attached to a published article eg must link to publisher site, DOI ete

Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied

General Conditions:

      
  • Pre-print on a web-site
  •   
  • Pre-print must be labeled with date and accompanied        with statement that paper has not (yet) been published
  •   
  • Copy of authors final peer-reviewed manuscript as        accepted for publication
  •   
  • Post-print on author's web-site or employers server        only, after acceptance
  •   
  • Publisher copyright and source must be acknowledged
  •   
  • Must link to APA journal home page or article DOI
  •   
  • Article must include the following statement: 'This        article may not exactly replicate the final version published in the APA        journal. It is not the copy of record.'
  •   
  • Publisher version cannot be used
  •   
  • APA will submit NIH author articles to PubMed        Central, after author completion of form

Do we intend to do linking as requested and   include statements?

I   guess I was not aware of all the complexities and thought more of a yes it   can be archived or not it cannot

This   will impact the way/extent to which we keep records of permissions

SFU has author/submittor submit a form that states: Everyone who submits work to Summit for the first time will need to sign a non-exclusive license and return it to the Library. By signing the license the author does only two things - they guarantee that they have the rights to deposit the work in Summit and they give the SFU Library permission to migrate the work to newer formats as they develop for purposes of preservation. All rights to the work remain with the author."

SFU licence states: "You represent that you have the right to grant the rights contained in this license and you also represent that your submissions do not, to the best of your knowledge, infringe upon anyone's copyright. You represent that the submissions, if authored by you, are your original work, and that you have not previously assigned or relinquished these rights.
