Author Rights Workshop: 2021 Intellectual Property Speaker Series

Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 10:00am to 11:30am

When you publish in scholarly journals, you’re usually required to give up some rights in your work. In this workshop, MIT librarians Katharine Dunn and Katie Zimmerman will show you what to look for in author contracts and discuss ways to retain rights to share and reuse your work, including via MIT's open access policies.

This session is part of the "2021 Intellectual Property Speaker Series" co-sponsored by the MIT Technology Licensing Office and MIT Libraries. Please check out our other sessions in this series!
