Journals@UIC (Journals@University of Illinois at Chicago): Creative Commons Licenses

Agreement for Publication and Sharing of Rights

Columbia University has developed an Agreement for Publications and Sharing of Rights.  The agreement should be altered to reflect the University of Illinois and the State of Illinois (and not Columbia University or the State of New York).  The advantage of this contract is it allows for 3rd party (royalty free) contracting for indexing, abstracting, and publishing purposes which can be important for the dissemination of the journal.  [Note: the beginning of the contract (name of the journal, title of article) and end of the contract (signatures) can be omitted as Journals@UIC is an online submission system.  The online submission form will prompt for this information. Consult UIC's scholarly communication librarian for assistance with using or alterning this form.  (Sandy De Groote, sgroote@uic.edu, 312-413-9494) ]
