Rights retention has become an increasing area of focus for many funders, particularly as stronger open research policies are implemented. On September 12th at 12pm ET / 9am PT, the next OpenCon Library Community Call will feature experts on these policies and how they might evolve and be strengthened. Johan Rooryck and Sally Rumsey will provide an overview of cOAlition S's approach to rights retention, and intellectual property expert Michael Carroll, professor of law at American University, will discuss the ways U.S. federal agencies might approach rights retention in implementing the OSTP Memo.
Registration is now required for OpenCon Library Community Calls. You can register for the September call here and details on joining will be emailed to you.
