Publishing, dissemination and open science course - Enhancing the value of my publications while respecting copyright (May 29, 2024)


The Institut Sociétés en Mutation en Méditerranée (SoMuM) and the Service Commun de la Documentation (SCD) of Aix-Marseille Université, invite you to their training session "Valuing my publications while respecting copyright", on Wednesday May 29, 2024, from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. This course is organized in partnership with the Pôle Édition of the Maison méditerranéenne des Sciences de l'Homme (MMSH).

As an author, you will encounter a number of legal issues throughout the publishing process. This course aims to give you the keys to a better understanding of the rights you hold over your publications. We'll explain how to transfer your economic rights to your publisher, using concrete examples. To optimize the visibility of your research, a focus will be placed on how to disseminate your publications through open access, in compliance with the law.

While leaving plenty of time for questions and discussion, the course will cover the following points in particular:

  • literary and artistic property, and more specifically copyright;
  • publishing contracts;
  • promoting open-access scientific publications;
  • Creative Commons licenses.

"Valuing my publications while respecting copyright" is one of a series of modules on the theme of "Publishing, dissemination and open science", part of the SoMuM Institute's "Mediterranean Studies" doctoral program.
