CFParticipation: Model Publishing Contract for Digital Scholarship

Lisa Macklin (Emory University) and Meredith Kahn (University of Michigan) invite comments on drafts created through the “Model Publishing Contract for Digital Scholarship” project:

With the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Emory University and the University of Michigan seek to develop a model author-publisher contract and relevant addenda optimized for the publication of long-form digital scholarship.

In order to ensure this contract meets the needs of both authors and publishers, we are soliciting feedback from authors, publishers, and other interested stakeholders, and will make draft versions of these documents publicly available for comment. Materials will be available for review until February 15, 2017, at which time we will incorporate feedback into a revised version of the documents, which will be shared publicly and available for adoption, reuse, and modification.
