      Dear Colleagues,

      While I don't know how much SACC NOTES contributers would use these
      services, I wanted to share with you the privilege of wading through
      the legalese.

      > 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
