Copyright and Author Rights presentation from ACRL Toolkit

Science Commons has created a Scholars Addendum Engine that generates a PDF you can distribute to faculty as an example of what they can attach to their publication agreement.

The SPARC Author Addendum is a legal instrument that modifies the publisher’s agreement and allows you to keep key rights to your articles.

The Creative Commons site is another widely consulted resource which provides deep background and innovative solutions for authors who would like to retain control of their products.

Many case studies are available on the Create Change site , which examines changes in how scholarship is conducted and communicated across a variety of fields. – From ACRL SC Toolkit http://www.acrl.ala.org/scholcomm/node/40

Lots of links on author addenda and retaining key rights

General:

Engaging faculty around new models of scholarly publishing

Disciplinary repositories, such as arXiv (physics, mathematics, nonlinear sciences, computer science, quantitative biology) perform the same sorts of services as institutional repositories, but for scholars within particular disciplines or groups of disciplines. The Open Access Directory (OAD) is a continually-updated resource of disciplinary repositories. The Directory of Open Access Repositories (OpenDOAR) provides a list of open digital repositories, both disciplinary and institutional, organized by continent.
