Retain rights to your publications! MIT’s Amendment to Publication Agreement

MIT’s Amendment to Publication Agreement [MSWord] [PDF]

Developed at MIT, this amendment is a tool authors can use to retain rights when assigning copyright to a publisher. It will enable authors to continue using their publications in their academic work at MIT, to deposit them into the MIT Libraries’ DSpace repository, and to deposit any NIH-funded manuscripts on the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed Central database.
