Calling Past Authors

Author permissions: Archives and Manuscripts retrospective digitisation project

The Australian Society of Archivists Inc. (ASA) is working towards making digital versions of all back issues of its flagship publication Archives and Manuscripts freely available via an online platform.
The current objective is to provide online access to the first 39 volumes of Archives and Manuscripts, published between 1955 and 2011. These issues have been digitised with the support of the University of New South Wales and the Australian National University.
We now ask Archives and Manuscripts authors to grant us permission to publish the digitised version of all their contributions in volumes 1-39 of the journal. These contributions include, but are not limited to, any article, editorial, obituary, review, news and notes and any other content that has been published in any issue of Archives and Manuscripts. The ASA will issue all content it has permission to republish with an attribution, non-commercial, no-derivative licence.
In granting the ASA a non-exclusive right to share your published contributions in digital form, you retain the right to be attributed as the author of the work and you retain the right to distribute your work in any way you choose.
We ask that you email your permission to Joanna Sassoon (aandmcopyright@archivists. org.au) who is managing the rights process for the ASA.
Your e-mail should indicate your name and state clearly that you give permission to Archives and Manuscripts and the Australian Society of Archivists, Inc. to reproduce all your contributions in volumes 1-39 (up until 2011) in a digitised version of the journal for the duration of the copyright.

For example:
I, Susan Smith, agree to grant the Australian Society of Archivists Inc. the non-exclusive right to publish all my contributions to Archives and Manuscripts in volumes 1 to 39 in digitised reproductions of the issues in which these works first appeared for the duration of the copyright.

We appreciate your co-operation with this aspect of the project.
