> POLICIES --
> August 1, 2005
> Dear Journal Editor,
> It's hardly an understatement to say that the past several years
> have brought sweeping changes to scholarly communication. While
> impossible to name every major shift, the most significant lie in
> the ways that online information is exchanged: better technology
> and the proliferation of digital journal collections have allowed
> scholars to make their ideas and research available to more readers
> than they ever thought possible; new content formats and peer-to-
> peer file sharing have changed forever the face of intellectual
> property in the university and library environment; and the
> construction of in-house hosting platforms have enabled academic
> librarians to quietly enter spaces that traditional journal
> publishers typically have filled.
> In order to accommodate these changes and to provide our authors
> and editors with the best services and support available, UC Press
> has implemented two new systems/policy modifications that will
> better assist your journal's dissemination and administration. The
> first is a new online permissions service, called Rightslink®,
> available on Caliber and AnthroSource®, and the second, is a
> landmark revision to the "Author's Rights" provision in our author
> agreements, which allows authors expanded rights to post their
> working papers and published articles on personal websites, and in
> open-access institutional and discipline-specific repositories.
> The Rightslink® Permissions Service
> In January, the Journals and Digital Publishing Division of the
> Press successfully launched Rightslink on both the Caliber (http://
> caliber.ucpress.net/) and AnthroSource (http://
> www.anthrosource.net/) hosting platforms.
> Rightslink is an automated permissions and reprints (high-quality,
> printer-generated reproductions) service of the CopyrightClearance
> Center, a global provider of copyright licensing and compliance
> solutions. Rightslink allows individuals and organizations an easy,
> online way to obtain rights-cleared permissions for and reprints of
> journal content that falls outside of the fair use provisions of U.
> S. copyright law.
> Visitors to Caliber and AnthroSource who would like to receive
> permission or reprints for educational or commercial use may simply
> locate the article content in which they are interested, select the
> "Reprints & Permissions" link from the journal's table of contents,
> submit their requests, and pay any related fees.
> University of California Press is the first university publisher to
> launch Rightslink, joining large commercial publishers such as CMP
> Media, Reed Business Information, Taylor & Francis, Sage
> Publications, Dow Jones, The New York Times, Haworth Press, and the
> American Institute of Physics.
> If you receive permissions requests from publishers or individuals
> who would like to reproduce or reprint your journal content as
> photocopies for classroom use or in secondary publications (DVD and
> CD-ROM, edited collections, anthologies, etc.), please direct
> interested parties to Rightslink on Caliber and AnthroSource.
> Revised Author Agreements
> Recognizing that a digital environment dramatically increases the
> means of disseminating scholarship, University of California Press
> has revised its author posting policies and agreements to
> facilitate ease of participation within both institutional
> repositories and discipline-specific e-print archives. With such
> revisions in place, authors are able to maintain more control over
> their scholarship and its dissemination to the public. The new
> policies also garner a green SHERPA rating, identifying the Press
> and its publishing partners as advocates of author self-archiving
> and open-access initiatives.
> In addition to the usual rights granted to authors, including the
> right to utilize their articles in the classroom and in books or
> collections of which they are authors or editors, the revised
> author agreement now allows authors
> to post articles to their personal, company, and/or departmental
> websites, and
> to deposit their working papers, or preprints, and published
> articles, or postprints, into institutional repositories and
> discipline-specific e-print servers.
> Because these new rights are still subject to copyright protection
> and administration outside of fair-use boundaries, the Press has
> drafted the following posting guidelines and encourages use of the
> new Rightslink service to protect content from misuse:
> Author Posting Guidelines
> Preprints: If an author deposits an unedited "working paper" or
> preprint to a website, they must clearly state on the site that
> their article has been accepted for publication in and note where
> (in Caliber or AnthroSource) and when it will be published.
> Postprints: Once the author's article is published, they must
> remove the preprint from the site and replace it with a postprint.
> The author may not use the Publisher-generated PDF, and they must
> display the following Publisher's Statement in tandem with posting:
> "Published as [provide complete bibliographic citation, as appears
> in the print version of your journal]. © [Year] by [the Regents of
> the University of California/Sposoring Society]. Copying and
> permissions notice: Authorization to copy this content beyond fair
> use (as specified in Sections 107 and 108 of the U. S. Copyright
> Law) for internal or personal use, or the internal or personal use
> of specific clients, is granted by for libraries and other users,
> provided that they are registered with and pay the specified fee
> via Rightslink® on or directly with the Copyright Clearance Center
> (CCC), http://www.copyright.com/."
> NOTE: Revisions to the author agreement and posting policies apply
> retroactively to content published prior to their release.
> Editorial Office Procedure
> As a reminder, we request that all editors routinely collect the
> new author agreement forms prior to the publication of the issue
> and return copies of the forms, along with an author address list
> to the Press. You may begin to distribute the new agreements with
> your next journal issue.
> Additionally, we also ask that you continue to inform the Press of
> any copyright exceptions or third party permissions that require
> special credit lines at the same time. We have provided sample
> photo and text permissions forms via the download link in the
> "Packet" should you need them; please feel free to provide them to
> your authors. (For complete information on copyright, refer to our
> "Journal Copyright Guidelines" below).
> Editorial Office Copyright and Permissions Packet
> This letter links to several important documents--including your
> updated author agreement forms--in PDF and Word format. Each will
> help you advise authors on changes to our permissions program and
> to their publishing agreements:
> New Author Agreement Forms (for editors) - Select your journal title
> Copyright Transfer and its Practical Applications (for authors)
> Journal Copyright Guidelines (for authors and editors)
> Sample Photo Permission Letter (for authors)
> Sample Article Permission Letter (for editors)
> ** PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE ABOVE DOCUMENTS AThttp://www.ucpress.edu/
> journals/authors/editorialpacket.htm **
> Note also that in concert with the new agreements, we have launched

> www.ucpress.edu/journals/authors/. The site exists to aid authors
> in publication of their material and to house author-related
> information and documents. Feel free to refer authors to the site
> We hope that this announcement and accompanying materials will
> assist you in your communication with authors about permissions at
> the Press, copyright, and online posting rights. If you have any
> questions at all about the new forms or procedures, please do not
> hesitate to phone or email us.
