Elsevier has a Licence To Publish which it will provide if an author declines to click through its Copyright Transfer Agreement online.
I offered Elsevier the SPARC/Science Commons Author Addendum instead of signing the CTA and in response was sent the LTP. It allows the author to keep all the rights needed for personal dissemination, re-use, etc while obtaining, for Elsevier, sole rights to publish it in a journal. Since most articles are not ever destined to be published in more than one journal, this seems a very satisfactory solution for the majority of cases.
This is a useful alternative that a librarian at the University of Minnesota was also able to obtain.
Starting January 18, 2011, the National Science Foundation (NSF) will begin requiring a data management plan will all new grant proposals.
University Libraries offers a workshop on Creating a Data Management Plan. This course qualifies for RCR credit. For a schedule and registration information, see:
