Copyright Information

The world of scholarly publishing is changing rapidly for all academic fields. New technologies combined with increases in journal prices have encouraged libraries and scholars to find new ways to provide access to scholarly information. Indiana University Libraries and the IU Digital Library Program have created an institutional repository online, IUScholarWorks, to make the work of IU scholars available to a wider audience. Indiana University Libraries have also developed a Scholarly Communication website to provide more information on online institutional repositories and e-scholarship.

The SHERPA project's website provides information describing individual publisher's copyright and archiving policies. Policies for each journal vary, so it is important to consult your author contract regarding depositing articles and/or contact the publisher directly. Please feel free to contact the African Studies Librarian if you have questions or concerns and we will be happy to assist you.
