Copyright & Terms of Use

Copyright

To be published in a UTS ePRESS journal, book or conference, authors grant the ePRESS first right of electronic publication as well as non-exclusive rights to promote the published work internationally and store and update the published work.

In most cases, authors retain all other rights including rights over:

  • further dissemination or republication of the work
  • posting the work in a repository or online
  • creating derivative works
  • translating the work

Each journal, book or conference will specify the rights which apply for publication.

Many ePRESS publications employ Creative Commons licenses which allow certain rights for the author, publisher, reader and re-user. Some of our earlier works (mainly pre-2014) have more traditional copyrights whereby the journal, book, conference or author retain copyright to the work. Since 2014, all ePRESS journals use the Creative Commons CC-BY license.
