SPARC Europe Satellite Meeting

This session will focus on how to manage copyright, moral and exploitation rights, and Creative Commons to work optimally for a range of for authors, publishers, repository managers, university management, policy makers and other stakeholders in the scholarly communication. It is organised by SPARC Europe that is striving to make Open the default and is enabling the conditions, opportunities and rights for Open Science in Europe.

The session will provide the context of both Croatian Civil Law related to copyright and sharing challenges with the current European Copyright Directive, which already affect or are likely to affect all stakeholders in the research processes and communication.
The second part of the session will then provide concrete practical guidance for those wishing to carry out good licensing practice for scholarly publications:

  1. Why, what, and how to license
  2. How to manage rights and licenses for a range of materials in repositories (for repository managers), and
  3. How to manage rights and licenses in journals and books (for authors, editors and publishers)

During the last part of the session the audience will have time to ask the experts for advice based on their own cases.

This session will inform and educate all stakeholders in the scholarly publishing processes and research infrastructure, also providing concrete take-aways that can help participants in resolving common challenges. PUBMET2018 organizers and SPARC Europe invite you to join us!

Session organizers: Romana Matanovac Vuckovic (University of Zagreb), Vanessa Proudman (SPARC Europe) and Ignasi Labastida i Juan (University of Barcelona)
