Faculty authors may request a waiver to opt-out of the Open Access Archiving Policy. To request a waiver fill out the form below. Waivers are typically granted on a per article basis. However, faculty members may request a blanket waiver for all scholarship. All waivers will be granted. Please note that by opting out your author’s rights will be limited to the agreement you sign with the publisher.
If you are requesting a waiver because of a restrictive publishing agreement, we encourage you to attempt to negotiate your agreement first. The Open Access Archiving Policy gives you a stronger bargaining position to negotiation restrictive agreements.
