Author Addenda

Retain copyright for your work - create an author addenda form

An author addenda form can preserve your rights to:

  • Post a published article on personal or campus websites
  • Post pre-publications of article on personal or campus websites
  • Deposit the article in a open access digital repository
  • Make print or electronic copies for interlibrary loan, reserves, and e-reserves

Protect your rights to share your work! It's easy to create an addendum to supplement an existing copyright transfer agreement. The Science Commons – Scholar’s Copyright Addendum Engine, SPARC Addendum to Publishing Agreement and University of Michigan Author’s Addendum all have sample forms you can use.
