Workshop: Negotiating Publishing Contracts - Monographs

Thursday, November 16, 2017 11:30 am to 1:00 pm


Duderstadt 1180


Which terms of your publishing agreement might you want to negotiate? How? When you’re working on behalf of a publisher, what terms do you seek? Explore these and other questions about publishing contracts in a workshop hosted by Ana Enriquez of the U-M Library Copyright Office. This workshop will focus on publishing contracts for scholarly monographs. A similar workshop on November 15 in Hatcher Library will address publishing contracts for journal articles. After a brief overview of negotiation techniques and the law in this area, participants will negotiate mock publishing contracts. The group will then reconvene to debrief those negotiations. All are welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunches to eat during the workshop. A light dessert will be provided. Please register via TeachTech or by contacting Ana at
