"Congratulations! That manuscript you’ve worked so hard on has been accepted for publication. Now it’s time to sign the author’s agreement. But what exactly are you agreeing to?" In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn the basics of reading and understanding standard scholarly publishing agreements so that you can enter into these transactions with eyes wide open. You’ll also be introduced to resources available to help protect your rights as an author.
