Authors Rights and Negotiating Author Agreements
Join the Authors Alliance for a lively discussion about authors rights and negotiating author agreements with Brianna Schofield, executive director of Authors Alliance and a copyright attorney, and Rachel Brook, a staff attorney at Authors Alliance specializing in copyright.
COVID-19 has impacted many of the regular ways that we access scholarship. With libraries around the world trying to deliver service with limited or no physical access to collections, many authors are thinking about how to they can work with publishers to ensure their work remains accessible.
Attendees from the sciences, medicine, and humanities will get an overview of author agreements and learn some ways to negotiate with publishers to ensure your work is reaching its audience.
This event is part of Open Access Week at Johns Hopkins Libraries.
