one. The draft directive does not ask the faculty to cede the rights to the university. Instead, it proposes that faculties collectively give non-exclusive permission to publicly publish their articles in OPUS. The faculty would not alienate any of its copyrights, as the authorization granted is not exclusive, meaning that the same permission may be granted to others. Each author would still own the copyright in his article and would remain free to exercise it independently. The policy is that the university`s faculty generally grants non-exclusive permission to make its articles open, and publishers` policy already allows this, but few faculties follow. one. It`s unlikely. The section of the FH on copyright provides that members are copyrighted to the works they produce in the context of employment, unless members are expressly required to produce works as part of their duties. It is essential that the faculty be the copyright holder of its scientific articles, as the draft directive proposes that the faculty collectively exercise its rights as a copyright holder by choosing to give the university non-exclusive permission to archive and publicly disseminate its scientific articles. In other words, the copyright provisions of the FH allow the faculties to grant the non-exclusive rights proposed by the directive. In all cases, the university strives to ensure that outgoing workers are treated with respect and that collective agreements and worker guidelines are respected. All employees have access to support resources to assist them during this transition.
One. The main idea – the ability to grant a flat-rate, non-exclusive licence to the university to make its articles available to the public – is to change the current default so that certain rights to faculty articles are systematically retained by the institution, rather than the authors assigning all their rights (traditionally) to commercial publishers. The waiver applies to the few publishers who do not support OA in any of its two main forms: the archiving of accepted manuscripts and publication in OA journals. A. “Irrevocable Authorization and Distribution” are terms that usually appear in non-exclusive licenses for filing content, such as the distribution license that our graduates must grant to the university for their e-thes. The authorisation granted is “irrevocable” to ensure the permanence of the public archiving of academic articles. This does not mean that an archived article should never be repressed by public access. Permission to archive authors` articles “in any medium” is a necessary provision, as the university must be able to carry OPUS content on future platforms and media without having to obtain the copyright holder`s permission of any archived object.
one. Numerous studies have clearly shown that freely available articles online are more often cited and have more impact than those that are not freely available.
