Second Publication Rights


Bitte folgen Sie dem folgenen Hyperlink zum Aufruf der Seite der Universit├Ątsbibliothek Potsdam.

The database can be searched for model contracts and guidelines of the publishing houses which provide information on how authors can effect secondary online publications of their works and how much time must elapse before publication. In the database preprints (before review) and postprints (after review) are differentiated. Frequently, the so-called "Final Draft" (galley proof of the publishing house) is meant when the expression postprint is used.

  • According to § 38 (1) of German copyright law (Urheberrechtsgesetz) the author may, after the expiration of one year after publication in a periodically appearing compilation (journal, anthology etc.), reproduce and publish his or her work elsewhere unless otherwise agreed.
