How does Dartmouth College Library support scholarly publishing and communication?
- Consultation for authors in negotiating publication contracts for journal articles, books and educational materials.
- Dartmouth's amendment to the transfer of copyright contracts with publishers: The Library offers faculty and student authors an amendment to the standard publishing contract that helps authors retain more rights to use, reuse and post their own material. You can modify the WORD amendment to suit your need to retain rights to any kind of published work.
- Copyright consultation, including the uses of Creative Commons licenses.
- Dartmouth Open Access Publishing Fund: The Library helps fund the payment of Article Publication Charges (APCs) for fully open access journals.
- Support for an early career researcher to attend OpenCon, the student and early career researcher conference on open access, open education and open data, in past years.
- Support for the implementation of the Dartmouth Faculty Open Access Policy, developed in collaboration with the Council on the Libraries.
