Amendment to Publication Agreement for UD Faculty Authors
The University of Delaware Faculty Open Access Policy operates automatically to give UD a license to scholarly articles faculty members complete after its adoption, April 6, 2015.
If you wish to communicate this policy to your publisher, you may add an addendum stating that the agreement is subject to this prior license to any copyright license or assignment for your scholarly articles Such an addendum is unnecessary, but may help you avoid agreeing to give the publisher rights that are inconsistent with the prior license to the University of Delaware that permits open-access distribution. The University provides a suitable addendum for this purpose. Whether you use the addendum or not, the license to the University still will have force.
A downloadable copy of the publication addendum and instructions may be found below.
