> Report on Electronic Publishing Urges More Control for Authors
> American Association for the Advancement of Science
> 12 July 2002
>
> A committee comprised of a distinguished group of scientists, attorneys,
> legal scholars, and publishers, and convened by the American Association
> for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), issued today a report on
> intellectual property rights in the information age.
>
> The report, Seizing the Moment: Scientists' Authorship Rights in the
> Digital Age, reflects the ongoing and highly complex scholarly debate
> regarding intellectual property law, while calling electronic publishing,
> "a new and exciting prospect for science and its patrons." But it also
> notes that the current legal structure may set up roadblocks against the
> fulfillment of its promise.
>
> Rather than calling for changes in copyright law, characterized as
> daunting prospect that would take many years, the report recommends a more
> immediate step. It calls for authors to use their leverage as creators of
> a work to negotiate licensing agreements with scientific publishers that
> will maximize access to and dissemination of their work.
>
> Specifically, the report suggests the following guidelines to scientists
> in working out licensing agreements with scientific publishers:
>
> * Authors should receive attribution whenever their work is reproduced,
> redistributed or displayed publicly. If there are no pre-existing
> restrictions, they should be allowed to disseminate and use their work at
> no or nominal cost in ways that maximize access to it by others for
> educational and research purposes.
>
> * Agreements should provide for long-term affordable access to scientific
> work, while giving publishers the right to receive reasonable return on
> their investment for any efforts made to add value to the original work.
>
> * Users covered by the licensing agreement should have no barriers to
> reading, printing, displaying or downloading published work.
>
> * Users not covered by the license should have access to materials on
> terms compatible with copyright law, including fair use.
>
> The report was produced with funding from the National Science Foundation
> (NSF). A complete copy is available at
> <http://www.aaas.org/spp/sfrl/projects/epub/epub.htm>
