Open Access Publishing
This provides an overview of OA, including government and publisher policies, resources, and key issues pertaining to scholarly publishing and Tulane
Peer-Reviewed, Open Access. Tulane University Journal Publishing is open access, peer-reviewed journal publishing service which provides a web-based platform for scholarly and academic publishing to the Tulane community.
The Tulane Supporting Impactful Publications (SIP) assists in covering fees to support open access options for high impact peer-reviewed publications for Tulane scholars serving as corresponding authors who do not have grant or other funds available to cover them.
Most OA agreements allow you the author to retain your copyright
Traditional journals own the copyright of your work, meaning you can’t even post the article on your website
The SPARC Author Addendum is a legal instrument that modifies the publisher’s agreement and allows you to keep key rights to your articles. The Author Addendum is a free resource developed by SPARC in partnership with Creative Commons and Science Commons, established non-profit organizations that offer a range of copyright options for many different creative endeavors.
The Creative Commons copyright licenses and tools forge a balance inside the traditional “all rights reserved” setting that copyright law creates. Our tools give everyone from individual creators to large companies and institutions a simple, standardized way to grant copyright permissions to their creative work. The combination of our tools and our users is a vast and growing digital commons, a pool of content that can be copied, distributed, edited, remixed, and built upon, all within the boundaries of copyright law.
