Copyright and Access

Copyright policies, access issues, and permissions questions are all central to the work of scholarly publishers and the cycle of scholarly communications.

AUPresses provides a number of resources and guides for publishers and scholars to work through practical copyright and permissions questions, including a guide to online copyright tools and the AUPresses Permissions FAQs.

The Association also closely follows relevant case law, legislation, and international policy, as well as the public debate over open access models and copyright reform.
