Scholarly communication refers to the many and varied ways researchers, academics, and students participate in the ongoing conversation of research in every field.
The Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) is an alliance of academic and research libraries organized through the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). Their Author Resources page includes the Author Addendum as well as more information about copyright and open access as it relates to academic researchers.
Below, find the PDFs of the Author Addendum and the guide on Author Rights.
Based at the University of Nottingham and in association with JISC, SHERPA's databases support authors and researchers in need of information about publishers' and funders' open access policies.
