Protecting Publishing Rights
To help SLAC meet its contractual obligations to DOE, while ensuring both SLAC and its authors retain their publishing rights, you need to complete the following steps prior to submitting your document or copyright forms to a non-SLAC publishing agency.
Note: If needed, Scientific Publishing Services will delay the public release of any proprietary SLAC documents until after journal publication date.
SLAC's Copyright Stipuation
This following amendment to most journals' standard copyright agreement protects the author's right to post electronic copies of their papers on preprint servers or electronic archives.
"The Publisher, by accepting this article for publication, acknowledges the U.S. Government's right to retain a nonexclusive, royalty-free license in and to any copyright covering [this article or material in this work]."
