1) We strongly support the Open Access Movement.
In particular, any science author should, at a minimum, claim from a publisher that she reserves the right to post the final manuscript version immediately (for example, as a PDF file) and the published version six months after publication. This can be conveniently done by attaching the OpenAccess-Delay 1.0 Addendum from Science Commons to the copyright transfer form agreement from the publishing company. Alternative amendments to the copyright transfer form agreement are:
- The OpenAccess-Publish 1.0 Addendum reserves the right for the author to post the published version immediately upon publication.
- The OpenAccess-CreativeCommons 1.0 Addendum reserves the right for the author to post the published version immediately and to grant others a Creative Commons "Attribution NonCommercial" license to use the article.
