When you publish a journal article, you sign a copyright agreement. Do you know what you're agreeing to when you sign it? Different journals have different policies:
How can you find out a journal's policy? How can you negotiate your contract to make the most of your rights as a scholar, researcher, and author? Come learn over lunch how to preserve your rights to reproduce, distribute, and display the work you create.
Light lunch will be provided
Space is limited, so RSVP is required
