Copyright Waiver Request
On September 19, 2011, the Faculty approved an “open-access” policy that is intended to make the faculty’s scholarly articles, published in journals and conference proceedings, available to a wider public. Under this policy, faculty members grant to The Trustees of Princeton University a nonexclusive, irrevocable, worldwide license to exercise any and all copyrights in his or her scholarly articles published in any medium, whether now known or later invented, provided the articles are not sold by the University for a profit, and to authorize others to do the same. This grant applies to all scholarly articles that any person authors or co-authors while appointed as a member of the Faculty, except for any such articles authored or co-authored before the adoption of this policy or subject to a conflicting agreement formed before the adoption of this policy.
The policy contains a provision under which the Provost will waive or suspend application of this license for a particular article authored or co-authored by that Faculty member. Faculty members may request a copyright waiver by completing the electronic form located at the link shown below.
Upon submission of this form, an email message containing the waiver will be promptly generated and sent to the email address provided by the requestor.
Should you have any questions regarding the University’s copyright policy you are encouraged to contact the Office of the Dean of the Faculty at: firstname.lastname@example.org
