Save the Dates: Forum on Legal & Financial Aspects of Academic Publishing

YOU ARE INVITED
Mark your calendar for an interactive forum focusing on legal and financial aspects of academic publishing, scheduled for September 22-23, 2014.


THE FORUM  

Academic authorship and publishing require a working knowledge of the complex, and sometimes confusing, legal and financial issues involved--including copyright, authors' rights, intellectual property, open access, fair use, creative commons and institutional repositories. At Know Your Rights: Copyright, Authors' Rights, Intellectual Property and the Emerging Intersection with Institutional Repositories, experts will lead you through these and related topics (including the new TWU Pioneer Open Access Repository (POAR).) Admission is free to all events of this two-day forum hosted by the TWU Libraries.  No registration is required, and attendance is open to all.  Questions are welcome and encouraged.
