OA: Who owns the copyright of my research? I thought I did...

Question:
OA: Who owns the copyright of my research? I thought I did...
Answer:

According to the Royal Holloway’s Intellectual Property Policy, the College does not claim ownership on ‘…artistic works, films, books, articles, plays, lyrics, scores, or lectures…’ created by employees.

The Open Access Publications Policy (OAPP) is not requiring you to assign copyright of any of your works to Royal Holloway but to grant certain non-exclusive rights so it can archive and publish a version of your work created during the course of your employment via the College research repository. Whenever you submit an item into the repository you are accepting the terms of the Royal Holloway repository deposit licence which outlines the rights being granted.
