Author Addendum (SPARC)

Author Addendum (SPARC)
The SPARC author addendum is a supplemental agreement that can be added to a proposed publication contract. The addendum modifies copyright transfer agreements to allow author to retain specified copyrights which may include the distribution of copies for the purpose of teaching and research, posting an article to an institutional repository, and/or creating derivative works.
"SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) works to enable the open sharing of research outputs and educational materials in order to democratize access to knowledge, accelerate discovery, and increase the return on our investment in research and education."
