It is the intention of the Digital USF St. Petersburg Digital to comply with all U.S. and international copyright restrictions and to respect the intellectual property of all authors whose work is represented in the archive.
"In support of the self-archiving route to Open Access, the Scholar’s Copyright Addendum Engine (SCAE) provides a point-and-click way for scholars to retain rights over their published material that otherwise transfer to the publisher.
The SCAE is intended for authors who publish in a traditional, subscription-based journal yet still wish to make a copy of their article available on the Internet for download without most copyright and financial restrictions."
"The SPARC Author Addendum is a legal instrument that modifies the publisher’s agreement and allows you to keep key rights to your articles. The Author Addendum is a free resource developed by SPARC in partnership with Creative Commons and Science Commons, established non-profit organizations that offer a range of copyright options for many different creative endeavors."
