Publishing Terms

Terms used in publishing.

  • Gold OA (Open Access) - the publisher makes all articles and related content available for free immediately on the journal's website. Articles are licensed with Creative Commons licenses. Many gold open access journals follow an "author pays" model and charge APCs (article processing charge).
  • Green OA - referred to as self-archiving, is the practice of placing a version of an author's work into an online institutional repository, making it freely accessible for everyone. 
  • Hybrid OA - a subscription journal that offers some articles as OA if the author pays a APC fee to make the article OA. The publisher charges for a subscription to view other content. 
  • Article Processing Charge (APC) - publication fee charged to authors to make work available in OA. This fee does not mean the author retains copyright.
  • Creative Commons - is the licensing used for Open Access items or if a copyright holder wants to allow others to use their work, this allows the holder to clearly advise how the copyrighted item may be used. 

Opportunity to Publish in Peer Reviewed Journals at No Cost

Liberty University researchers have expanded access to content and no-fee Open Access publishing opportunities through JFL’s membership in the Virginia Academic Library Consortium (VIVA) .

  • Current Liberty University students, staff and faculty can publish journal articles with Cambridge University Press hybrid and gold journals for free. More information on the agreement is here . The list of available journals is available here .
  • LU researchers can publish open-access articles with no fees in Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) journals, magazines, and proceedings from Oct. 1, 2021-Dec. 31, 2024 , while still retaining copyright.

  • LU researchers can apply for funds to publish Open Access articles in Wiley hybrid and fully gold journals .

Faculty Publications and Presentations

When publishing or presenting their own scholarly works, faculty should consider two aspects of copyright:

  • The Faculty member's rights as the author/creator for the work being published/presented
  • The use of others' copyrighted material within the work

Faculty Member as Author/Creator

In general, whoever creates a work is the copyright holder. (An exception would be works made for hire .) Copyright is automatic, and it is not necessary to register for copyright or use the © symbol. If you are interested in registering for copyright, please review the  registration portal at the U.S. Copyright site. 

The copyright holder may grant permission to others who wish to use their work. They may also use a free  Creative Commons  license to allow others to use their work without asking for permission. A Creative Commons license allows the copyright holder to choose the terms by which others can use their works. All Creative Commons licenses require attribution to the author. 

Copyrighted Materials within Publications/Presentations

When a work that includes copyrighted materials such as images and other audiovisual materials , graphs , charts , testing instruments , etc. is published or otherwise made publicly available, there are additional copyright considerations. Faculty can review the  Copyright Basics  tab for additional information.

In addition to citing their sources in order to avoid plagiarism , faculty will need to do one of the following. if their use of copyrighted material falls outside of the Fair Use Guidelines :

  • Review the Fair Use Checklist (link below) to see if the use of a copyrighted item is fair. Keep the filled in checklist as due diligence.
  • Link to or otherwise reference the work without embedding it in their publication/presentation
  • Replace the material with something this is either in the public domain , has a Creative Commons license , or clearly gives permission for the intended use.
  • Seek permission from the copyright holder or publisher of the work.
  • Fair Use Checklist

Evaluating Publisher & Publications

Evaluating Publishers & Publications

Not all publishers are the same.  Whether traditional subscription, open access, hybrid, or monographic, it's important to evaluate a publisher before agreeing to publish anything with them.

Use the  Think-Check-Submit checklis t . Review it before submitting work or agreeing to serve as a reviewer. A few minutes can save your research reputation! Identify predatory or low-quality journals.

For Journals:

  • Who is on the editorial board?   Are the editors clearly identified?  Are their email addresses and/or phone numbers provided directly on the publisher's site?
  • Can you confirm that the editors are actually serving in that role?   Do the editors have this position listed on their online CV?  Can you confirm with the editor-in-chief via email ?
  • What is the acceptance rate of the journal?  (Note: Some legitimate mega journals, such as  PLOS ONE , accept any methodologically sound study that passes the scrutiny of peer-reviewers.  This is a new model that attempts to share good research regardless of trends in popularity or research interests, but mega journals should be closely evaluated for quality leadership, editors, reviewers, etc.  Not all mega journals are of the same quality.)
  • Who founded the journal?    Who owns it/runs it now?   Do they have an academic background?
  • Can you retain your copyright, or any subset of copyrights you want to keep, to your work?   For example, can you use the publication in presentations, in courses, in future publications if revised and expanded?  Can you add it to your own site, or archive a copy in an online archive/repository?
  • Are there clear guidelines for authors, including fees to authors?   Legitimate publishers will be upfront with their publication practices.  For authors, there should be no surprises or uncertainty about a publisher's procedures.

For Monographs:

  • Can you confirm that the editor is actually serving in that role?   Does the editor have this position listed on their online CV?  Can you confirm with the editor via email?
  • Who founded the publishing house?    Who owns it/runs it now?   Do they have an academic background?
  • Are there clear guidelines for authors?   Legitimate publishers will be upfront with their publication practices.  For authors, there should be no surprises or uncertainty about a publisher's procedures.

Change the Contract to Keep the Copyright

Many authors want to keep their rights as an author.  Review these resources to gain knowledge regarding the publisher's contract and the ability to make changes to a binding contract.

  • SPARC Author Addendum (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) The SPARC Author Addendum is a legal instrument that modifies the publisher’s agreement and allows you to keep key rights to your articles. The Author Addendum is a free resource developed by SPARC in partnership with Creative Commons and Science Commons, established non-profit organizations that offer a range of copyright options for many different creative endeavors.
  • MIT Framework for Publishers Contracts We endorse this framework through our consortium VIVA (Virtual Library of Virginia)

Avoid Book Publishing Contract Mistakes

  • Own the rights to your book.  Do not give up ownership.
  • Do not give your rights to a publisher with them paying you a percentage. 
  • Publishers can sell your book to other companies and make changes to your book without permission.
  • is meant to make sure that you do not directly compete with their book by putting out another book with a competing publisher. They could claim it damaged their book sales.
  • this clause can keep you from writing future books.
  • This can keep you from releasing another book for 1-2 years.
  • Ambiguity is your enemy.
  • "Reasonable and customary expenses" clearly define what that means.
  • Means "take it as it is or walk away".
  • Set up a payment schedule with penalties for late payments.
  • The publisher states that your next book or subsequent books must be submitted to the publisher before you can submit them anywhere else.
  • If it is included, there needs to be a term stated such as 60 or 90 days for the publisher to accept or reject the book.
  • If the decision is made to leave the publisher, there may be an early termination fee.  This could be hundreds to thousands of dollars.
  • Create goals for sales of books per month.  If goals are not met then the book becomes "out of print" and rights transfer back to you. (eg. 20 books/month for a three-month window).  If the publisher does not sell that many copies, the book becomes out of print and right to revert back to you.  Do not allow amortization of book sales over time.
  • The time frame for a publisher to publish a book, usually 18 months after signing the contract.  If the publisher does not publish it within 18 months, reverts back to you.
  • Make sure no matter what, the contract states that rights revert back to you at the end of e.g. 3, 4, or 5 years.
