ABOUT THE RESOURCE
In this webinar, organized by EIFL and cOAlition S, Sally Rumsey and Johan Rooryck of cOAlition S discuss rights retention policies that enable authors to exercise the rights they automatically own so they can use their work as they choose. These rights include the ability to deposit a copy of their Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM) in a repository, and to provide open access to it without embargo and under an open licence.
cOAlition S launched the Rights Retention Strategy in 2020 to give researchers who are supported by a cOAlition S organization the freedom to submit manuscripts for publication to their journal of choice, including subscription journals, whilst remaining fully compliant with Plan S. This year (2022), to help researchers acknowledge and assert their rights, cOAlition S has launched an online campaign, under the theme ‘Publish with Power: Protect your rights’. The webinar provides updates on this campaign, the cOAlition S Rights Retention Strategy and the suite of freely available resources about the Rights Retention Strategy.
