Charles Oppenheim on who owns the rights to scholarly articles

Charles Oppenheim, The Delicious Burden, Digital Pedagogy, Feb 04, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Richard Poynder writes, " the Scholarly Communications Officer at Duke University in the US, Kevin Smith, published a blog post challenging a widely held assumption amongst OA advocates that when scholars transfer copyright in their papers they transfer only the final version of the article." However, he writes, "Charles Oppenheim, a UK-based copyright specialist, believes that OA advocates are correct in thinking that when an author signs a copyright assignment only the rights in the final version of the paper are transferred." The bulk of the article is a guest post by Oppenheim, which is unfortunately not as useful as the introduction.
