Rockefeller University Press now allows its journal authors to retain copyright. Authors can re-use their own work as they see fit, as long as they give proper attribution to RUP.
6 months after publication, journal readers can use the work as well, under a Creative Commons license -- again, with attribution and only for noncommercial purposes.
As Emma Hill and Mike Rossner put it in their editorial, "We are pleased to finally comply with the original spirit of copyright in our continuing effort to promote public access to the published biomedical literature."Posted by stemp003 at May 2, 2008 2:58 PM
