Hi all, Great news! We have successfully convinced a self publish Journal to let authors retain their copy right under CC-By 4.0 licence!!! Finally the publisher agree with our vision! and it’s the first step toward open Science! This is not easy in Asia, as most professors still don’t have the concept of letting author retain their copy right, it’s very traditional here!
The publisher ask me if the author need to sign an agreement for them to publish their work? and the publisher ask me to draft an agreement for them. Do author sign a document before publish? Is there any example that I can have a look? Is CC-BY 4.0 the best licence for author? any help will be appreciated!
