Intellectual property and publishing

Abstract:

This chapter explores the issue of intellectual property, particularly copyright, as it relates to scholarly journal publishing. Library publishers must attempt to strike an appropriate balance between protecting authors’ rights and providing flexible reuse rights for readers. To this end, author publishing agreements, publisher intellectual property policies, and Creative Commons licensing are addressed. Additional considerations for publishers, including copyright in journal website content, and potential trademark rights in a journal’s name, are also discussed.
