Rights of Authorship, Copyrights, Exploitation Rights
The authors' rights of authorship, their copyrights as well as their exploitation rights are ensured. Publication with ArchiMeD, Mainz University's server for electronic academic publications, does not restrict further publication in scholarly journals, monographs, or even other electronic systems.
Authors and/or editors of documents are responsible for third party's compliance to rights of authorship, copyrights and exploitation rights. Several publishers permit parallel publishing on full-text servers such as ArchiMeD. If you are unsure about how your publisher handles copyrights, but still want to publish documents with ArchiMeD, please find further information in the list of publishing houses of the SHERPA project (Securing a Hybrid Environment for Research Preservation and Access).
A written statement ("Erklärung") between authors and the University Library regulates rights and responsibilities.
