Scholarly publishing is rapidly changing as new technological developments are made in the publishing industry. To expand the reach of research and to maximize its value in this new environment, many researchers are taking a more active role in managing their copyright. In support of these efforts, the UW-Madison Libraries encourage you to be aware of your rights as an author and can help you to navigate and to manage your copyright.
If you are interested in exploring ways to negotiate these rights, need assistance using the endorsed addendum or have any questions related to issues of fair use or the re-use of materials in your teaching, please contact the Libraries for assistance. Visit the UW-Madison Libraries’ Scholarly Communication and Publishing Web site or contact your library liaison.
